BEREA, Ohio (AP) -- Cleveland Browns star running back Nick Chubb is being evaluated for a concussion after being tackled on the first day players were in pads. Chubb, who rushed for 1,494 yards last season, was taken down after catching a short pass by linebacker Mack Wilson during Monday’s workout. A few minutes later, Chubb walked slowly from the field into the team’s training facility with a trainer to be checked.

A team spokesman said Chubb is being examined for a possible head injury. Before practice, first-year coach Kevin Stefanski said he had spoken to his players about not being overly aggressive.
