Nick Chubb Could Undergo Two Knee Surgeries

Wednesday, September 20, 12:40 AM

Cleveland Browns running back Nick Chubb (knee) suffered a gruesome injury on Monday night in the team's 26-22 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Head coach Kevin Stefanski shortly announced after the game that Chubb would be out for the season with a knee injury. The road to recovery is a long one for the star running back, and he could undergo two separate knee surgeries, according to NFL Insider Josina Anderson. Anderson said there have been "initial discussions" of it, with the first surgery coming "within the next 7-10 days, and the second occurring several weeks after." Nothing has been confirmed yet.

Kenneth Gainwell Puts In Limited Practice

Thursday, September 21, 7:40 PM

Philadelphia Eagles running back Kenneth Gainwell (ribs) was listed as a limited participant in the team's first practice of the week on Thursday. Meanwhile, fellow RB Boston Scott was held out with a concussion. Gainwell was surprisingly the Eagles' lead runner in the season-opening win over the New England Patriots, but he picked up a rib injury in that contest and was inactive in last Thursday's win over the Minnesota Vikings. The 24-year-old looks to be in good shape to return on Monday night for a Week 3 matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but there's no guarantee he'll see as much work as he did in Week 1 after D'Andre Swift had 28 carries for 175 yards and a touchdown last Thursday.
