CLEVELAND — While Nick Chubb has progressed through his MCL injury and is rearing to get back on the field, that determination will not be made just yet, according to Cleveland Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski.

The running back was designated for return from injured reserve on Monday after missing four games with the knee injury, but has not yet been activated.

Stefanski said that the decision on Chubb’s status for Sunday’s game against the Houston Texans will be made after consulting with medical staff, and said that while there has been nothing during practices that has given the team and indication that Chubb wouldn’t be ready to play on Sunday, they're waiting to make sure they make the right decision.

“We’re going to do what’s best for Nick and what’s best for the Browns,” Stefanski said. “We wanted to use each one of these days to see how he responded each day. He hit all the benchmarks so it’s just a matter of making sure we’re all on the same page and making sure he’s ready to go—and if he's ready, he’ll be out there, and if we feel like he's not ready this week, we’ll make that decision.”

Although Chubb’s status for Sunday is still undecided, Stefanski said that the team does expect to have right guard Wyatt Teller back out on the field from his calf injury—a return that has proven substantially more crucial after his replacement Chris Hubbard was placed on the team’s reserve/COVID-19 list Friday afternoon.

“He practiced well this week,” Stefanski said of Teller. “He looked like Wyatt Teller at practice and then we get him out there on Sunday and he’s got to do the same.”

When it comes to linebacker Jacob Phillips, the Browns have listed him as questionable with the knee injury that has sidelined him for much of the season. All other players are expected to play on Sunday as of Friday evening, according to the team’s injury report.
