Nick Chubb placed on IR, expected to miss “about six weeks”

Doctors expect Nick Chubb to be out six weeks with knee injury.

NFL: Cleveland Browns at Dallas Cowboys Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

The Cleveland Browns are placing running back Nick Chubb on IR with an MCL injury.

Fantasy Impact

Obviously a huge blow to Chubb, the Browns, and fantasy managers. Go add D’Ernest Johnson off waivers right now. Johnson had 13 carries for 95 yards in for Chubb Sunday against the Cowboys. If the Browns continue to utilize two running backs, Johnson is a valuable fantasy add.
