Browns star RB Chubb returns from COVID roster, cleared to play
Berea, Ohio – Cleveland Browns running back Nick Chubb from the Reserve/COVID-19 roster has been activated, giving the team one of its best players for a critical period of the season.
Chubb, who is third in the NFL with 721 rushing yards despite missing three games, was cleared of a comeback on Friday after spending 10 days away from the team. He tested positive on November 9 along with bullish bet payout/return Demetrik Felton, who has also been activated.
Chubb and Felton sat on last week’s 45-7 loss to New England.
It is not yet known if Chubb will play on Sunday against the Detroit Lions (0-8-1). Cleveland’s offense wouldn’t have been the same without the 25-year-old, who rushed for 137 yards and touched down twice against Cincinnati on November 11.
It was Brown (5-5) without Cream Hunt. He will miss his fifth game in a row on Sunday with a calf injury.
Chubb missed two games earlier this season with a calf injury.
After facing the Lions, the Browns will host North Asian leaders Baltimore, spend a farewell week, and then play with the Ravens.
