CLEVELAND — Cleveland Browns offensive lineman Chris Hubbard left Sunday night’s game against the New York Giants with a knee injury and in an update Monday afternoon, the team announced Hubbard will miss “significant time” due to the injury.

Hubbard sustained the injury in the first quarter and was able to walk off the field and into the locker rooms for further evaluation. He was ruled out for the remainder of the game just before halftime.

On Monday, head coach Kevin Stefanski said that Hubbard would miss “significant time” with a knee injury.

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported during Stefanski’s press conference that Hubbard will have surgery to repair torn ligaments in his knee and that it was dislocated during Sunday night’s game.

Stefanski said he would wait to comment on that report and stuck to his original statement that Hubbard would miss “significant time.”

After Sunday’s game, Hubbard reached out to fans to thank them for their support.

Hubbard was filling in at right guard when he was injured, taking over for Wyatt Teller who is dealing with an ankle injury.

After losing their backup right guard, the Browns called upon rookie center Nick Harris to fill in at the position, which Stefanski said is the plan for their next matchup against the New York Jets if Teller is unable to go.

Stefanski said Teller is week to week with his ankle injury and is unlikely to play against the Jets.
