Chubb (knee) will be activated off injured reserve and play in Sunday's game against the Texans, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Coach Kevin Stefanski suggested Chubb would need to receive approval from the medical staff to play, so Saturday's designation should give fantasy managers plenty of confidence to insert the star running back into their lineups. It's entirely possible the Browns could still be cautious with Chubb's workload, particularly with Kareem Hunt's more-than-adequate foray as the starter, but it's hard to believe the team would activate Chubb if it didn't plan to play in some capacity. The matchup certainly couldn't be much better to get Chubb some confidence, as the Texans allow the most rushing yards per game in the NFL.
