Nick Chubb left the field for the Cleveland Browns
Chubb was tackled by linebacker Mack Wilson and it appeared his neck was twisted on the play.
He stayed on the turf for a few seconds before being attended to by team trainers. Afterward, he was taken to the locker room which was a sour note on what has been an ugly day in Berea, thanks in large part to the weather.
The Browns seem to have dodged a bullet, however, as Nathan Zegura — who is covering every minute of the team’s practice — said he appears to be fine. That suggests his leaving the field was more of a precaution than anything else.
For the coach, this wasn’t the first time he was speaking to defenders as he could be heard telling them not to tackle to the ground on Monday, which was also the team’s first practice in pads.
Wilson also made headlines earlier in camp when he spoke out about the disrespect he and his fellow linebackers have been receiving this offseason. The general consensus is that this is the biggest weakness on the team and Wilson wants to prove that to be a false narrative.
All around the league today, there seems to be injury news which has shaken up rosters early. Thankfully for Cleveland, this one seems to be a mere scare rather than anything significant.
