Browns RB Nick Chubb (knee) exits in first quarter vs. Cowboys, ruled out

Cleveland Browns running back Nick Chubb has been ruled out the rest of Sunday’s game against the Cowboys.

In the first quarter, Chubb was pass blocking on a play where a Cowboys defender was pushed into his legs behind him. Chubb clutched his knee in pain but walked off the field under his own power.

Chubb’s day ended after that play with six rushes for 43 yards.

Kareem Hunt assumed the role of the Browns’ featured back upon Chubb’s exit and proceeded to find the end zone twice in what has materialized into a shootout with the Cowboys.

Chubb is amid a hot start to the 2020 season with 51 rushes for 292 yards and four touchdowns (averaging 5.7 yards per carry). While the Browns do have a serviceable backup in his place, Chubb is an essential piece to an offense that has scored over 34 points in it’s third consecutive game on Sunday.
