Nick Chubb, Demetric Felton of COVID-19 list for Browns vs. Lions

Cleveland Browns running back Nick Chubb is third in the NFL in rushing yards.

BEREA — The Browns have regained their attack’s powerful engine.

Nick Chubb’s Run Back was activated Friday from the Reserve/COVID-19 roster, and the two-time Pro Bowl roster will play when the Browns (5-5) face the Detroit Lions (0-8-1) in FirstEnergy on Sunday Stage .

“It’s great to have number 24 back,” Browns All-Pro defensive end Myles Garrett said after Friday’s practice. “I mean, he’s the man, one of the best in the league and a great guy in the locker room.”

The Browns announced the move involving Chubb on Friday morning, along with the activation of rookie running back/wide receiver Demetric Felton from the same list. Like Chubb, Felton will be active against the Lions.

Chubb and Felton each tested positive for a breakthrough case of COVID-19 on Nov. 9 and missed Sunday’s 45-7 loss to the New England Patriots. Both players returned to training on Friday.
