Browns’ RB Nick Chubb exits game with disturbing injury too gruesome for broadcast replay

The Cleveland Browns’ running back Nick Chubb had been crucial in his team’s stunning season-opening victory over Joe Burrow’s Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC North. Chubb’s first game of the year demonstrated how important he is to the squad and their overall dominance on the field.

The Browns apparently were further demonstrated how crucial their RB is to the team in their Week 2 game as they fell short to the Pittsburgh Steelers in the match, which also featured a horrible injury to Nick Chubb and he was limited to play.

Chubb’s game cut short by an apparent knee injury in Pittsburgh

The Monday night football of the Browns appeared as a major misfortune for Nick Chubb as he had to leave the field in a cart in the second quarter of the game. The running back’s injury necessitated the team to rule him out for the remainder of the game after he suffered a horrific left knee injury.

Nick was struck low by Steelers safety Minkah Fitzpatrick, causing his left knee to buckle inward. Nick appeared to be in severe pain and had to be carted off immediately.

The Browns faithful were devastated by the injury and anxiously waited for some good news on the player’s condition. Even the Steelers’ supporters clapped in reverence as he was wheeled off the field in a medical cart.

Running back Jerome Ford took over Chubb’s position after he left and scored a 3-yard touchdown pass. Injuries are not uncommon for Nick as during his time at Georgia University, the 27-year-old had previously torn the PCL, MCL, and LCL in his left knee.

Nick Chubb’s replay off-limits due to the severity of the incident

Nick Chubb was in excellent form prior to suffering the devastating injury and appeared to be eager to give his squad their second victory. In the contest, the four-time Pro Bowler had 10 carries for 64 yards.

However, when he was hurt, the crowd audibly groaned when it was first noticed as the broadcast channel ABC replayed it in the arena. As a result, there was no further replay of the incident displayed during the Steelers vs. Browns game.

Furthermore, ABC announcer Joe Buck announced, “I am told that the replay of Nick Chubb getting injured is not to be seen.”

NBC Sports reported that analyst Troy Aikman claimed that Chubb’s injury was severe saying “it’s as bad as you can imagine.”

Cleveland Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski announced that Chubb is expected to miss the rest of the season.

However, it is certain that losing him, even for just one game, would be a terrible blow to the Browns since no one is more adept at his position than Nick Chubb himself.

Though the full extent of his injury still remains undisclosed, the incident has been a huge blow for Chubb, his teammates and the entire NFL community at large.
