Nick Chubb forfeits the Broncos
Already absent on Sunday in the loss to the Cardinals, Nick Chubb will also miss the Denver reception on Thursday night. Insufficiently recovered from a calf injury, his team preferred to play it safe and left their star runner to rest. It was Cleveland coach Kevin Stefanski who announced it at a press conference.
Already deprived of Kareem Hunt for a long time, the Browns, whose primary offensive strength lies in the ground game, will have to find new solutions to pose problems to the Broncos. Rookie Demetric Felton should have playing time and the opportunity to show off his talent.
Author of an excellent start to the season, Chubb has already run for 523 yards in 5 matches and scored 4 touchdowns.
#Browns coach Kevin Stefanski makes it official: RB Nick Chubb is out Thursday night.
