Chubb has been out since suffering a concussion in Monday’s practice following a tackle around the neck from linebacker Mack Wilson.
The Browns also announced that cornerback Kevin Johnson has been released from the hospital after being treated for a lacerated liver he suffered in Wednesday’s practice:
Johnson was injured when tight end Harrison Bryant landed on him during a passing drill. Johnson’s status will be evaluated on a weekly basis, according to clevelandbrowns.com, and he also has to pass the COVID-19 testing protocols before he can return to team headquarters.
