NFL: Nick Chubb suffered serious knee injury in Steelers win over Browns

Pittsburgh Steelers They won 26-22 this Monday at Cleveland coffee, in a cross-country match between North American rivals, on a night marked by a gruesome knee injury to the running back Nick Chubb.

The Steelers beat the Browns in one of the oldest traditional games in the NFL. Monday marked the 142nd game between these franchises and the eighth-most played in league history, led by Chicago vs. Green Bay (205).

The American North now sees Baltimore Ravens in the team with two wins from two, followed by Cleveland and Pittsburgh with a win and a loss, while Joe Burrow’s Cincinnati Bengals have accumulated two losses and are forced to return.

The match was marked by a very serious injury to Nick Chubb, whose left knee was dislocated and broken after a collision with Minkah Fitzpatrick early in the second period.

Chubb, who has a three-year, $36 million contract, was left on the ground and required the assistance of a stretcher to leave the field of play.

American national television decided not to show footage of the injury, considering it too brutal. However, the stadium’s giant screens showed them, and the Pittsburgh crowd greeted them with cries of sympathy.

Local fans showed sportsmanship by cheering and chanting Chubb’s name as he left the field on a stretcher.

The Browns lost one of the league’s top running backs, who will undergo tests Tuesday to understand the extent of his injury; there are fears his season is over.

Santos retains complete victory
