(CTN News) – In Week 2, Nick Chubb, the star of the Cleveland Browns, suffered a knee injury that appeared to be serious, but medical assessments have provided a positive outlook regarding his recovery.
The left knee of quarterback Nick Chubb’s has been diagnosed with a torn MCL, which is fortunately not expected to spell the end of his career.
Despite the fact that his ACL was stretched, it didn’t tear, although further tests may determine whether he needs to undergo surgery as a result of the stretching in order to reconstruct his knee.
It is estimated that Nick Chubb’s will take six to eight months to recover from the knee injury, and he will undergo at least one surgery in order to repair the injury.
Initially, Nick Chubb’s injury raised concerns since he had already suffered a devastating knee injury in 2015 while he was a student at the University of Georgia, where he suffered multiple ligament tears and a dislocated kneecap as a result of a freak play.
While running five yards, he was tackled by Steelers safety Minkah Fitzpatrick, which caused his knee to bend unnaturally as he was trying to run five yards, which resulted in the injury he sustained.
Due to Nick Chubb’s injury, the Browns decided to start Jerome Ford as their starting running back, and they also decided to re-sign veteran tailback Kareem Hunt, who previously played for the team.
In addition, prior to his injury, Nick Chubb’s had racked up 170 rushing yards on 28 attempts in the current season, surpassing 1,000 yards in each of the last four seasons on a consistent basis.
His previous year, he amassed an impressive 1,525 rushing yards and 12 touchdowns on 302 carries, which was an excellent performance.
It is true that Nick Chubb’s has suffered an injury, but the prognosis suggests that he will eventually be able to return to football action at some point in the future.
