Cleveland Browns running back Nick Chubb suffered a knee injury that forced him to be carried off the field in the second quarter of his team’s Monday Night Football game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
On a first-and-goal from the 8-yard line, Chubb carried the ball 5 yards before being hit awkwardly in the knee by Steelers safety Minkah Fitzpatrick.
The crowd let out an audible groan as a replay played on the video board at Pittsburgh’s Acrisure Stadium, according to a video broadcast.
ABC opted not to air a replay of the injury during its broadcast of the match, with commentator Troy Aikman saying: “It’s as bad as you can imagine.”

Chubb received a warm round of applause from fans of the rival Steelers as he was taken off the field on a medical cart.
Fitzpatrick was also shaken up on the play but remained in the game.
The Browns quickly announced that Chubb would miss the remainder of the game. The exact extent of his injury is still unknown.
Chubb had 10 carries for 64 yards in the game before the injury.
