It was a regulation match between the Browns against the Steelers on Monday Night Football and Nick Chubb was at his best and was almost unstoppable in the first half of the game. As both the teams struggled it was Chubb who was at his electrifying best and kept doing his thing and picking up the yards.
His team relied heavily on him and it was quite natural for his team to put its best foot forward. Cleveland bet on it as they gave the ball to him when they were in the red zone. As he rolled on toward the end zone, he met his nemesis in the form of Minkah Fitzpatrick. It was a wall that Chubb could not fall and ended up injuring himself. Everything happened so quickly that one could trace the full horror that became evident in the replays.
The replay in slow motion was so gory and horrific that the broadcasters refrained from showing it. However, since the broadcast was live and shown on the huge screen it could not be erased and was soon all over the web.
We are reproducing this video with a warning that it is a terrible video, though, and viewer discretion is advised.
The video reveals that Chuub’s legs got underneath and bent from the knee at an unnatural angle. At one point, his upper body is nearly perpendicular to his lower leg, pivoting around the knee area and the force would have pulverized his knee joint.

Impact of Nick Chubb’s injury on his career
Nick Chubb is just 27 years old but his performance far outnumbers his years. He is a seasoned player and entered the league in 2018 and has since made it to four Pro Bowls. He was an All-Pro last year as well.
His average is stupendous and the second-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft has proved correct the faith his team had on him. His average of 5.3 yards per carry is the highest among anyone in the league since that time. He is the driving force behind the success of Cleveland Browns and its position as a franchise in the past few years and shed the baggage of being perennial losers.
However Chubb’s injury has put a big question mark on the future one cannot help but wonder what comes next. Detractors also rue the fact that franchises bet their money on younger green horns instead of veterans because they do not want to pay big money to players who can get injuries like this.
