The Cleveland Browns began their Week 16 prep with some concerning news as stud running back Nick Chubb popped up on the injury report with a foot issue. He then missed practice on Tuesday and Wednesday, prompting worries about his status for Saturday's game.
Cleveland has now received an update on the RB's health.
Nick Chubb Injury Update
Chubb returned to practice on Thursday after sitting out the two previous sessions this week. He also carries no injury designation for Week 16 against the New Orleans Saints, meaning he should be a full go.
This news is a big sigh of relief for Cleveland. Chubb has been the Browns' best offensive weapon all season, racking up 1,252 rushing yards and 12 touchdowns en route to his fourth straight Pro Bowl selection. He's also provided stable production during the team's struggles with Deshaun Watson under center, giving Cleveland at least one reliable way to move the chains.
Chubb is expected to see a ton of run on Saturday with severe winter weather expected. The mix of snow and high-speed winds in the forecast present the perfect conditions for the ground game to be heavily utilized against New Orleans.
The Browns head into this winter battle as 2.5-point home favorites, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds.
