Chubb suffered ligament damage in the Browns’ Monday night loss to the Steelers, Rapoport reported. Following the game, head coach Kevin Stefanski confirmed that Chubb would be out for the season.
Speaking to reporters Tuesday, Stefanski said the team would move forward with Jerome Ford, who posted 106 rushing yards on Monday, as the feature back, but was nevertheless looking to add to the RB room.
“You don’t replace Nick Chubb,” Stefanski said, via team transcript. “You just don’t do that. Great players in the league, you look around, they go out. It’s always not one person that replaces a player of his caliber. So everybody’s got to do a little bit more, a little bit more everywhere. But we’ll look at options there in terms of who we bring in.”
