CLEVELAND — Despite missing four games this season with a knee injury, Cleveland Browns running back Nick Chubb was able to surpass 1,000 yards this season, doing so on a touchdown run over the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday afternoon .

Watch the play below:

Chubb entered Sunday's game needing 41-yards to reach the 1,000 yard milestone and reached it on the Browns opening drive, rushing for 11 yards, then three yards before finally breaking out on the 47-yard touchdown run.

The star running back missed out on 1,000 yards his rookie season by just four yards, but in 2019 had an explosive 1,494 yard season, just barely missing the league's rushing title.

Chubb's 40-plus yard touchdown run made him the first Browns player to record that over the Steelers since 1958 when legendary Jim Brown did it.
