Nick Chubb nominated for FedEx Ground Player of the Week

Chubb tore through the Panthers’ defense all afternoon Sunday in Charlotte


Nick Chubb was a constant force for the Browns throughout their wild 26-24 win over the Panthers on Sunday in Charlotte — with 22 carries for 141 yards, the three-time Pro Bowler was back to plowing through defenders and picking up crucial gains.

As a result, Chubb is also back on the weekly list for NFL's Ground Player of the Week, given to the top running back performance in the league each week. He joins the Colts' Jonathan Taylor and the Lions' D'Andre Swift on the Week 1 list. 

Throughout the 2022 season, FedEx and the Thurgood Marshall College Fund will donate $2,000 in the name of each FedEx Air & Ground Player of the Week to HBCUs across the United States. Over the course of the season, HBCUs will receive more than $100,000 in grants to support needs-based scholarships through the 2023-2024 school year.
