The Cleveland Browns have activated running back Nick Chubb off injured reserve and he is reportedly expected to return from a four-game absence Sunday against the Houston Texas.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the 2019 Pro Bowler will suit up for the Browns in Week 10 action after being sidelined due to a sprained knee.

In the first four games this season, Chubb put up 335 rushing yards and four touchdowns. He hurt his knee in the first quarter of the Browns' 49-38 win over the Dallas Cowboys on Oct. 4.

The 2018 second-round pick rushed for 1,494 yards and eight touchdowns last season.
