Could return from MCL injury after Week 9 bye
Browns coach Kevin Stefanski said they won’t have RB Nick Chubb back this week and then they’ll see after the bye. Stefanski added Chubb is on schedule in return from injured MCL in his right knee. (Nate Ulrich on Twitter)
Nerdy Football Analysis: Kareem Hunt figures to get at least one more game (Week 8 versus the Raiders) as the featured back. Chubb and Hunt will see a mixed bag of run defenses after the bye, include highly favorable matchups the Texans, Jaguars and Jets as well as difficult ones versus the Ravens and Eagles. Owners in a position to look ahead to the fantasy playoffs should try to grab him at a slight discount, as Chubb is about as good as it gets as a pure runner.
