Chubb suffered a knee injury during a Week 4 win at Dallas. He had 335 yards rushing before making his exit. The Browns will now have three weeks to move Chubb to the active roster. Reports say he's expected to practice this week so it remains to be seen what his status will be for Week 10. With Hunt just OK during Chubb's time away, Chubb should slide right back into his usual role.
Browns coach Kevin Stefanski said TE Austin Hooper (appendectomy) will definitely be able to face Texans on Nov. 15. Stefanski said he feels good about how RB Nick Chubb (knee) and RG Wyatt Teller (calf) are progressing.
The return of Chubb isn't set in stone but it sounds like he's progressing. That would force Hunt back into a split of the workload at least. At TE, Bryant and Njoku take a hit as Hooper would return to the TE1 role. According to the tweet, we should get more updates as the Browns progress through their Week 9 bye.
