After the play, a teammate grabbed Chubb’s hand to try to help him to his feet, and Chubb shook his head while clutching his left knee. He untied his chinstrap, rolled onto his side and undid the chinstrap. In 2015, Chubb sustained a serious injury in the same knee while at Georgia. It was a dislocation accompanied by three torn tendons. The injury he suffered on Monday was also difficult to watch. ESPN refused to show the replay of the play in which he was injured. He was eventually carried away on a cart. Chubb was replaced by Jerome Ford who immediately scored on a 3 yard reception after Chubb left. Ford then rushed for a 2-point conversion to put the Browns ahead 11-7.
