Despite notable injuries to their offense, the Cleveland Browns sit at 5-3, which is good for third in the AFC North. While they face a tough road ahead within their own division, they return a couple players to their starting offensive lineup for Week 10 against the Houston Texans. The most notable returning player is running back Nick Chubb, who the Browns officially activated on Saturday.

Chubb avoided major injury to his MCL earlier in the season, the knee injury still kept him out since Week 4. The star running back had been enjoying his more efficient season as a pro, averaging 5.9 yards per rush.

It appears that Chubb will pick up right where he left off, with the matchup against Houston appearing to play directly into his favor. The game is calling for high winds, making the downfield passing game difficult. This should lead to a more ground and pound game, which Chubb clearly thrives.

The Texans have also struggled against the run this season. Through nine weeks, they have allowed the second-most yards per rush, at 5.1. Chubb could have a very notable performance in his return in Week 10.
