Look: After Carlos Hyde Trade, Sony Michel Is Pumped Up About Nick Chubb's Likely Increase In Carries


On Friday, the Cleveland Browns traded running back Carlos Hyde to the Jacksonville Jaguars, likely meaning more snaps coming for backup Nick Chubb.

“Browns want to get more playing time for rookie RB Nick Chubb,” ESPN’s Adam Schefter said in a tweet.

The former Georgia Bulldog has had only 16 carries this season, but he’s made the most of them, rushing for a total of 173 yards at a mark of 10.8 yards per carry. Expect those numbers to climb as Chubb is now likely the primary back in Cleveland.

With Chubb expecting more playing time, another Georgia rookie running back has been enjoying increased snaps as of late.

Patriots first round pick Sony Michel out of UGA got off to a slow start to his NFL career, but in his last three games, the third leading rusher in Georgia football history has averaged 22.3 carries and 105 yards per game.

Michel and Chubb entered the NFL as college football’s greatest running back duo of all-time, and though the two may be on different NFL teams now, they both still wish the other nothing but success.

Upon hearing of the Hyde trade, Michel sent out a tweet alerting fans that it is now Chubby time in Cleveland.
