Cleveland decided to run the ball and handed it to Chubb, but he was wrapped up by the Steelers defence.
Unfortunately in the process of being tackled, his left leg appeared to have bent the wrong way in a sickening incident.
Chubb’s teammates went to help him up, but he was in too much pain to move as the medical cart was brought out to take him off the field.

The sporting world reacted in horror over Chubb’s injury, although the extent of the damage is unknown.
It is the same knee Chubb dislocated as well as tearing his MCL, PCL and LCL in 2015.
Speaking on the broadcast, NFL commentator Joe Buck stated: “I am told that the replay of Nick Chubb getting injured is not to be seen.”
At the time of the injury, the Steelers led 7-3.
