Browns RB Nick Chubb is believed to have only suffered a torn MCL during Monday’s game against the Steelers.
With how the injury looked, this feels like incredible news that he only has one torn ligament instead of three or even all four. His recovery time is expected to be about 6-8 months, which could have him back for minicamp and he very well could be ready for training camp. That’s about the best news we could have gotten from Chubb. For now, it will be Jerome Ford leading the charge in Cleveland’s backfield with Kareem Hunt tagging along.
Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow is questionable for Monday against the Rams with a calf injury.
The Bengals added some insurance Saturday just in case by signing AJ McCarron to their practice squad. Burrow re-aggravated his calf injury from training camp in the Week 2 loss to the Ravens. Burrow missed about a month before returning in time for the season opener. If Burrow can’t go, the Bengals would turn to Jake Browning under center. Certainly a far cry from a fantasy perspective from Burrow, especially against an improved and healthy Rams defense.
