CLEVELAND — Cleveland Browns running back Nick Chubb and wide receiver Jarvis Landry are headed to the Pro Bowl.

Chubb, a second-round pick in 2018, is leading the NFL in rushing yards this season with 1,408.

“I am proud to be able to represent the Cleveland Browns at the Pro Bowl,” said Chubb. “This is the result of a lot of hard work and I want to thank my teammates and the fans for their support. Everybody played a part in this – our line, tight ends, the whole offense, it’s not just me. I am truly honored by this, but I would trade this and any individual award for team success.”

Landry leads the Browns with 74 receptions this year, 1,018 receiving yards and five receiving touchdowns.

This will be his fifth consecutive Pro Bowl.

“The Pro Bowl is a tremendous honor, and even though this seems like an individual award, it wouldn’t have been made possible without the support and efforts of my team,” said Landry. “I’m incredibly grateful to be returning for a fifth time and to represent the hard work and dedication we put in as Cleveland Browns this season. Like I said last year, it’s going to be very special for me to wear the orange helmet.”

Offensive guard Joel Bitonio was named a first alternate, linebacker Joe Schobert a second alternate, cornerback Denzel Ward a fourth alternate and wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. a fifth alternate.

The 2020 Pro Bowl will take place on Sunday, Jan. 26 at 3 p.m. on News 5.
