ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports Browns RB Nick Chubb suffered a torn MCL and was given a recovery window of six to eight months.
Based on how it looked in real time, this sounds like one of the better prognoses Chubb could have received. The Browns feared a multi-ligament injury, which would have likely extended the recovery timeframe to eight to 10 months. The pre-surgery recover window is clearly subject to change as Chubb has not gone under the knife yet, meaning we will know more once his surgery is performed. As of now, consider it great news for the electric back.
