The Cleveland Browns got Nick Chubb back at practice
In the wake of the handful of injuries the Browns have been dealing with, they finally get some good news as Nick Chubb has been cleared from the concussion protocol and will be back on the practice field for Saturday’s practice.
Chubb suffered the injury in camp after Browns linebacker Mack Wilson made a high tackle on him.
While Chubb was on the sideline dealing with the injury, Kareem Hunt was able to get most of the first team reps. When healthy, Chubb and Hunt can be a very scary backfield.
The offensive line was not very pleasant last season, and the Browns made it a priority to address it in the offseason. Drafting Jedrick Wills and signing Jack Conklin, the Browns are making it known they are going to be a run first team with a solid play action to follow, something that can be referred to as new head coach Kevin Stefanki’s “bread and butter.”
When Conklin was asked about what it would be like to block for a top backfield in the NFL and what it would be like to try and get Chubb a rushing title this year, his response was everything you want to hear from your new tackle.
"“It would be awesome. It’s going to be a lot of fun, even with Nick and Kareem. It’s not often you two guys that are that good on one team.” — Conklin via Anthony Poisal, ClevelandBrowns.com"
While Chubb will still most likely get the bulk of the carries, they are able to do a variety of things with how dynamic this backfield is, making it a very scary sight for the opposing defense.
