Nick Chubb has racked up over 1,000 yards each of the past four seasons and has been one of the top running backs in the NFL since the Cleveland Browns selected him in the second round of the 2018 draft.
Chubb appeared to be well on his way to producing another 100-yard rushing performance Monday night. He had gained 64 yards on nine carries during the Browns’ Week 2 game against the Steelers, but his tenth carry resulted in a gruesome injury.
Chubb was tackled by Steelers safety Minkah Fitzpatrick and remained on the ground grabbing his leg in obvious pain.
The four-time Pro Bowler was eventually carted off the field and later ruled out of the game with a knee injury.
“The way to change the position is being able to do so many different things on the football field. For me … lining up at receiver, lining up at slot, making yourself someone that is valuable for your team, for your offense. A lot of running backs in college, they text me and ask me for advice and how to be successful and how to do some many things in this league.
“I tell them you can’t just be a one-dimensional player, like you can’t just be a running back. You gotta be a guy that they can count on at receiver, a guy that they can count on a slot. A guy that they can count on in different situations that your team needs because that’s what gonna gain value in you as a player. And it’s gonna make you some much smarter as an overall ballplayer.”
