The Cleveland Browns and Philadelphia Eagles are wrapping up their bye weeks and both are likely to hit the practice field on Monday. We could see some big names returning to practice for both teams as they head into Week 10. Browns running back Nick Chubb and Eagles running back Miles Sanders are both expected back at practice this week after missing time due to their respective knee injuries, according to Ian Rapoport.

Chubb has been absent since spraining his MCL in Week 4. Kareem Hunt has filled in for him and been solid but not great. Hunt is averaging a quality 4.6 yards per carry while Chubb was averaging 5.9 yards per carry prior to his injury. Hunt would move back into a solid but more complementary role once Chubb returns.

Meanwhile, Sanders has been out since suffering a knee injury in Week. Boston Scott has filled in, but Sanders is the clear No. 1 when healthy. Sanders was averaging 6.1 yards per carry and 7.6 yards per reception prior to his injury.
