Nick Chubb Undergoes Second Knee Surgery, Expected Return in 2024 for Browns

The Cleveland Browns’ star running back Nick Chubb underwent surgery to repair a torn ACL in his left knee, an injury he sustained in Week 2 against Pittsburgh. This was the second procedure Chubb had on his knee since the initial injury. The Browns had hoped the injury wasn’t serious, but it was later discovered that he had torn his ACL. The team physician reported that Chubb’s recovery has progressed well since his initial surgery. Chubb’s injury occurred on a play against the Steelers, and he was carted off the field in tears. Despite the loss of Chubb, the Browns have been able to maintain a strong running game with Jerome Ford and Kareem Hunt. Cleveland will face Pittsburgh in a game with major implications for the AFC North.
