The Cleveland Browns have activated running back Nick Chubb off injured reserve ahead of Sunday’s home clash with the Houston Texans.
Chubb has been out of action since injuring his Medial collateral ligament in their Week 4 win over the Dallas Cowboys.
But he is now in line to feature as the Browns look to move to 6-3 in their quest to make their first playoff appearance since the 2002 season.
Despite appearing in just four games, Chubb leads the NFL in yards after first contact per attempt with an average of 3.4.

He is also first in the NFL in rush yards over expected per attempt, gaining an average of 2.04 yards more than anticipated on each run, according to NextGen Stats.
Chubb will look to take advantage of a Texans defense allowing 159.5 rushing yards per game, the most in the NFL.
