During Monday night’s matchup between the Cleveland Browns and Pittsburgh Steelers, Browns Pro Bowl running back Nick Chubb suffered what looked to be a brutal, likely season-ending injury.

After the 27-year-old Chubb was carted off the field, NFL fans noticed that his knee injury is now the third straight brutal Monday Night Football injury to occur on the program.

Prior to Chubb going down, Aaron Rodgers tore his Achilles on Monday Night Football last week, while Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin suffered from cardiac arrest in the final MNF matchup of last year.

Luckily, Hamlin has since recovered and made the Bills’ roster this season, while Rodgers has already confirmed his intention to rehab and come back and play for the Jets.

Speaking to reporters after the game, while Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski didn’t detail exactly what kind of injury Chubb suffered, he confirmed that the Pro Bowler would be out for the rest of the season.

“Nick’s got a very significant knee injury,” Stefanski said. “You feel for the person. He’s a great football player as we know, but he’s an even better person. we will support him every step of the way.”

As for the actual matchup between the Browns and the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Steelers came away with a 26-22 victory, giving the franchise their first win of the 2023 season.

Chubb’s replacement, Jerome Ford, filled in admirably, as he had 16 carries for 106 yards, and another 3 catches for 25 yards and a touchdown.

Ford’s big night wasn’t enough to help the Browns overcome the Steelers, though, as Pittsburgh’s defense harassed Deshaun Watson and the Browns’ offense all night, as they forced four turnovers and scored touchdowns on two of them: a pick-six on the first play of the game and a game-winning scoop-and-score from TJ Watt in the 4th quarter.
