“Sports fans all over Ohio and around the country are thinking of him. We hope to see him back on the field after a full recovery,” DeWine wrote.

Chubb injured his left knee after a run in the second quarter of Cleveland’s Monday Night Football matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The injury was so graphic that ESPN elected not to show a replay of the injury.
