Factoid: Bill Callahan

I was surprised when the Browns not only let Bill Callahan leave for Tennessee but let him leave without compensation. Callahan, after all, might be the best offensive line coach in the game. Take him away from Berea, and that may diminish Cleveland’s offense.   more »


Around the NFL: D'Onta Foreman

The Browns signed D'Onta Foreman yesterday, and I'm interested. Nick Chubb suffered an ugly knee injury last season that required multiple surgeries, and seems unlikely to be healthy at the start of the season. Foreman gets no respect, but he should.  more »

Factoid: Jerome Ford

The Browns like Jerome Ford more than Kareem Hunt. Just not around the goal line. They like to use the veteran in that part of the field.   more »

The Cleveland Browns are bringing back a familiar face in the wake of running back NICK CHUBB’s season ending injury, signing veteran rusher KAREEM HUNT to a one-year deal on Tuesday.More The Browns also officially moved Chubb to injured reserve, ending his 2023 season. Hunt played with the Browns for the past four seasons, but Cleveland chose to let him walk in the offseason.

Guillotine Leagues : Waiver wire report

In Week 2, there were a lot of injuries that happened over the weekend, but none more impactful than Nick Chubb and Saquon Barkley – especially in Guillotine Leagues, where there’s more importance on the here-and-now. I’ll not only be going over whom to replace them with, but what to bid on each player.   more »


Browns exploring options following Chubb injury

Cleveland Browns running back NICK CHUBB will undergo surgery on his injured left knee and will be out for the remainder of the 2023 NFL season. Browns head coach Kevin StefanskiMore said the team will now feature backup running back JEROME FORD in the lead role. The Browns are also exploring other options, including KAREEM HUNT. Hunt, 28, became a free agent this spring and the team did not sign him because they reportedly felt that his speed was not what it once was. Another player reportedly on the Browns’ radar is Los Angeles Rams running back CAM AKERS, who the Rams said earlier this week is likely to be traded. Stay tuned, fantasy owners. Less

Factoid: Nick Chubb

The Browns won’t have Nick Chubb again in 2023, but I don’t think that running game is going away. Great as Chubb is, a good portion of the success there can be attributed to the infrastructure around him – the offensive line, and the commitment to run the ball.   more »



Browns RB Chubb carted off field with knee injury

Cleveland Browns running back NICK CHUBB suffered a grisly knee injury on Monday night against the Pittsburgh Steelers and was carted off the field and quickly ruled out for the remainderMore of the game. On a second quarter carry, Chubb was hit low by Steelers safety MINKAH FITZPATRICK and his left knee went inward. The play was gruesome enough in nature that no replay was shown on the telecast. Chubb appeared to be visibly emotional. Chubb previously tore the PCL, MCL, and LCL in his left knee during his college career at Georgia. It’s the same knee he injured on Monday. Less



Browns RB Chubb to be more involved in passing game?

Cleveland Browns running back NICK CHUBB is seeing more activity in Cleveland’s passing game during training camp and the preseason, with fantasy owners hoping that trend carries over into the regularMore season. Chubb’s previous single-season high in targets was 40 back in 2021. But with KAREEM HUNT now gone and youngster JEROME FORD still working his way back from injury, the Browns will likely need Chubb to do more this season. Thus far, Chubb is embracing the challenge while downplaying the added responsibility. Take note, fantasy owners. Less


Factoid: Running back ages, part 2

If you’re hoping for a running back who’ll put up huge numbers – the best of his career – you should probably be looking at players who are under 28 years old. That’s how it tends to play out at the position.   more »



Browns RB Chubb could see fewer carries but more touches

Cleveland Browns running back NICK CHUBB is expected to remain a key part of the team’s offense heading into the upcoming season, although his role is expected to evolve slightly fromMore last year. The Browns are expected to have a more explosive passing game with veteran quarterback DESHAUN WATSON available from the start of the season this time around. Chubb is expected to see fewer carries this season, but his overall touches are unlikely to go down since he is likely to see more action as a receiver out of the backfield. Less

Around the NFL: Jerome Ford

Story out that the Browns won't be re-signing Kareem Hunt (it doesn't appear anyone is interested at the moment). And they already let D'Ernest Johnson go in free agency. So Jerome Ford needs to be on the list of late-round running backs, in case Nick Chubb breaks down.   more »
