Browns’ Nick Chubb taking knee rehab ‘day by day,’ says hit by Minkah Fitzpatrick ‘part of the game’


Chubb enjoyed career highs in rushing attempts (302) and rushing yards (1,525) and tied his career-best touchdown mark (12) in 2022 before lasting only two games last season and being carted off the field in the second quarter of that fateful Monday night game last season. He ran for 170 yards on 28 carries and caught four passes for 21 yards over those first two contests.

The four-time Pro Bowl back admitted it was difficult “not being able to play the game with your guys” but said he’s thankful that the Browns stuck with him after the devastating setback.

“Definitely a blessing,” he said. “They could have just cut me dry and left me hanging, right, but they did a great job. I want to be here in Cleveland — they know that — so we came to a great point.”

Is a Week 1 return possible? No one yet knows, but what a story it would make. It’s already set to be a high-energy atmosphere at Cleveland Browns Stadium on the opening Sunday of the 2024 NFL season, hosting the Dallas Cowboys in what’s expected to be Tom Brady’s debut as a play-by-play analyst for FOX.

Seeing Chubb run out of the tunnel before a game, whether it happens Week 1 or thereafter, might bring the house down. Browns fans love Chubb, and the feeling appears to be mutual.

“It’s a blessing to play this game,” he said. “You can’t take it for granted because in one play, it can all be taken away. I’m just blessed to have so much support around Cleveland, the fans, my friends, family, just to keep me uplifted and keep me going.”
