Cleveland Browns’ GM Provides Injury Update On Nick Chubb

Cleveland Browns general manager Andrew Berry still doesn’t know what to expect from running back Nick Chubb moving forward.

Chubb suffered a devastating injury in Week 2 of this past season, tearing his ACL and his MCL. He underwent a pair of surgeries back in the fall, and the status of his career is sadly in question.

Some felt the Browns could cut Chubb this offseason, but they opted to hold on to him.

When asked about Chubb this week, Berry said that the halfback is making good progress but that he doesn’t know how his future will look.

“Honestly, it is probably too early to really understand what he’s going to look like,” Berry said this week at the NFL’s Annual League Meeting, via The Akron Beacon Journal. “He’s doing truly doing a fantastic job with the rehab and he should start to load run probably sometime this upcoming month.”

Berry said it will still be a while before Cleveland can really get a good read on where Chubb stands.

“I think that as we think about it, until we see him in the next couple months, I think the next — call it three — months will be pretty telling in terms of his potential readiness for early in the season,” Berry said. “We are going to be conservative in terms of our approach in our assessment with building the roster because he is coming off of a major knee injury. But I do have to give him a lot of credit. He’s done a really, really nice job.”

Berry added that he will “maybe have a little more of a specific answer” around the time of the NFL Draft, which kicks off the end of next month.

Chubb, who played his collegiate football at the University of Georgia, was selected by the Browns in the second round of the 2018 NFL Draft.

He made four straight trips to the Pro Bowl between 2019 and 2022, racking over 1,000 yards each season. His best year came in 2022, when he rattled off 1,527 yards and 12 touchdowns on the ground.

Chubb has been an integral part of Cleveland’s offense when healthy, so if he can somehow regain his form heading into 2024, it would represent a major boon to a Browns squad that plays in a brutal AFC North division.

Cleveland went 11-6 and lost in the Wild Card Round of the playoffs this past year.
