The Cleveland Browns officially activated Nick Chubb from the Reserve-Covid roster Friday morning, which is a good sign that he’s on his way to play Sunday against the Detroit Lions.
Friday morning brought some promising news for Cleveland Browns fans. After missing the last game due to testing positive for COVID-19, regressing star Nick Chubb of the Reserve-Covid roster has been activated and is on his way to play Sunday against Detriot, reports Adam Schefter.
Cleveland Browns can really use Nick Chubb this weekend
The news hasn’t come too soon for Brown, who are currently 5-5 years old and are fighting an uphill battle for a place in the AFC. Chubb has been the Browns’ most consistent offensive player since he was drafted into the second round of the 2018 NFL Draft.
Chubb and Dmitrik Felton tested positive on November 9, and both had to miss last week’s loss to the New England Patriots. Despite missing three games this season, Chubb still ranks third in total rushing yards with 721 and a career average of six yards per attempt. Much credit goes to Brown’s attack, but Chubb is one of the most dynamic contestants in the league and would immediately welcome his presence if he were allowed to play against the Detroit Lions 0-8-1 in Week 11.
