The Browns win over the New York Giants on Sunday night at MetLife Stadium came at a cost, as the team has lost offensive linemen Chris Hubbard for the rest of 2020.
Hubbard was placed on injured reserve Tuesday with a knee injury suffered in the first quarter.
The guard was already a backup for Wyatt Teller, who was inactive for Sunday’s affair.
The injury to Hubbard took place when his knee buckled as he was pass-blocking for Baker Mayfield on the second play for the Browns.
“Hub has given us great reps — not good reps, great reps — as a versatile player,” coach Kevin Stefanski said.
“He is an outstanding teammate. We will miss him in the time that he misses.”
Last season Hubbard started 14 games at right tackle for the Browns.
The team picked him up in free agency from the rival Steelers, and he has played both at tackle and guard in 2020, his third year with the Browns.
This season he’s appeared in 11 games with six starts this season. He has started games at right guard and right tackle and has taken reps at left tackle.
