CLEVELAND — Three Browns players and Browns mascot Chomps visited patients at the University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center Wednesday to brighten their spirits.

Running back Nick Chubb, who won the AFC Offensive Player of the Week Award, wide receiver Damion Ratley and linebacker Joe Schobert talked to patients, took pictures with them and presented gifts to show support as part of the Browns Give Back’s support of the NFL Crucial Catch campaign, according to a news release from the team.

The NFL, Browns and the American Cancer Society have broadened their efforts to raise awareness for multiple types of cancer, in addition to breast cancer. The Browns will display their full support of the NFL’s “Crucial Catch: Intercept Cancer” campaign during the home game against the Seahawks on Oct. 13.

Through Browns Give Back, the Browns’ education and youth football program, the team is dedicated to #give10 through the team’s First and Ten community initiative. The program was established in 2014 to inspire fans to volunteer in their communities for 10 hours each year.
