The four-time Pro Bowler is likely out for the season after injuring his left knee in the game against the Pittsburgh Steelers

Running back Nick Chubb is likely out for the season after suffering a knee injury so gruesome broadcasters elected not to show the replay during the Cleveland Browns-Pittsburgh Steelers game on Monday night.

The Browns star’s left knee got tangled and turned inward after he was hit by Steelers safety Minkah Fitzpatrick near the goal line during the second quarter of the game.

Chubb, 27, is thought to have torn multiple ligaments, according to NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport, with an MRI on Tuesday set to confirm the injury.

The athlete was carted off the field, while Fitzpatrick suffered a chest injury on the play, according to USA Today.

Chubb’s alma mater, the University of Georgia, also shared well wishes: “Thinking of you @NickChubb.”

While a standout at Georgia, Chubb previously tore the PCL, MCL and LCL in the same knee during a game in 2015, per NFL.com.
