The Cleveland Browns lost their star running back, Nick Chubb, for likely the rest of the season on Monday night after he suffered a knee injury that was so gruesome ESPN refused to show replays of it.
That’s when ESPN’s Adam Schefter, who is one of the most connected NFL insiders in the business, decided to post an update on X (which was formerly known as Twitter) that could have been worded a lot better than the way he opted to frame it.
Check this out:
Nick Chubb dislocated his left knee and tore his MCL, PCL, and LCL with cartilage damage on October 10, 2015 vs. Tennessee. He injured the same knee tonight vs. Pittsburgh.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) September 19, 2023
Fans were not impressed.

Absolutely outrageous way to start this tweet https://t.co/lw9Uk2HcnC— B.W. Carlin (@BaileyCarlin) September 19, 2023
There were much less scary ways to send this tweet https://t.co/8PddF50YKt— Blaiden Kirk (@blaiden) September 19, 2023
dude just start the tweet with “In 2015,” https://t.co/ob4fch4dGZ— Joshua Brisco (@jbbrisco) September 19, 2023
Why would you start this sentence like that? “In 2015” was right there for you to start with. https://t.co/hOVeiWwhzL— Strictly 4 My X’ers (@Lizzs_Lockeroom) September 19, 2023
