Cleveland Browns running back Nick Chubb is expected to retune from a calf injury against the Steelers on Sunday, according to a report by Josina Anderson of CBS Sports.
Chubb has missed the Browns’ last two games with the calf injury, and co-starter Kareem Hunt also did not play in Cleveland’s win over Denver last Thursday night, leaving the rushing duties to third-teamer D’Ernest Johnson.
Hunt is on injured reserve and will miss the Pittsburgh game. Johnson would be expected to spell Chubb, assuming he returns. Chubb practiced on Monday, according to multiple media reports.
Chubb has played in five games this season and rushed 90 times for 523 yards and four touchdowns, averaging 5.8 yards per carry.
The Browns have the NFL’s top rushing attack, averaging 170.4 yards per game and 5.3 yards per carry as a team, both the best in the league.
