CLEVELAND — Cleveland Browns running back Nick Chubb is receiving recognition for his Pro Bowl season.

Chubb was one of three players nominated for the FedEx Ground NFL Player of the Year.

He finished second in the league for most rushing yards with 1,259, in spite of missing three games.

Chubb also scored eight rushing touchdowns and had five games with at least 100 rushing yards, which is tied for the second-most this season.

The other ground nominations are Indianapolis Colts running back Jonathan Taylor and Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon.
