Nick Chubb, RB (CLE)

Not playing Thursday

Coach Kevin Stefanski has ruled out Chubb (calf) for Thursday's contest against the Broncos, Jake Trotter of ESPN.com reports.

The Browns placed backfield mate Kareem Hunt (calf) on injured reserve earlier Tuesday, and now Chubb himself will miss a second game in a row. With the top pair on the pine, the team will turn to D'Ernest Johnson as the presumed starting running back Week 7, with Demetric Felton and John Kelly available behind him. Chubb's next chance to suit up will arrive Sunday, Oct. 31 versus the Steelers.
