Chubb finished with five tackles (four solo), including one sack, Sunday against Miami. Chubb was able to register a sack for the first time since Week 8 and now boasts 6.5 sacks on the season through 10 games. He's also recorded 30 tackles (22 solo) and a forced fumble so far in 2020.
Chubb had two tackles (one solo) and one sack during Sunday's loss to the Chiefs. The 24-year-old went without a sack in the first three games of the season, but he now has a sack in each of the past three contests. Chubb has 17 total tackles, 4.5 sacks and one forced fumble in six games.
Chubb recorded five tackles and his first 2.5 sacks of the season during Thursday's 37-28 win over the Jets. The Broncos have lost a host of heartbreakers in recent seasons, and it looked like more of the same Thursday with two minutes remaining, the Broncos up by two, and the Jets driving at midfield. Facing fourth and short, Sam Darnold dropped back, clutched, and was swallowed up by Chubb's second sack of the game. Melvin Gordon sealed the game with a touchdown on the next play. Chubb is in the unenviable position of trying to ease back from a torn ACL without the likes of Von Miller (ankle) and Jurrell Casey (bicep) to take the pressure off. He took a big step against a banged-up Jets front Thursday but will have a tougher task trying to bring down Cam Newton in Week 5.
Chubb (knee) said after Saturday's practice that his early exit was just precautionary, Troy Renck of ABC Denver7 reports. Chubb was spotted wearing ice on his knee on the sideline, but his comments after practice suggest this issue is nothing major. Still, it's worth monitoring Chubb's participation in practice next week with the season around the corner.
Coach Vic Fangio said Tuesday that Chubb (knee) isn't yet at 100 percent health but is close, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports. Fangio expressed that Chubb is "doing very well," building on a firm pattern of offseason optimism surrounding the 24-year-old's rehab. Chubb is recovering from an ACL tear sustained last October, and it still looks as though he's got a fair shot of gaining full clearance in time to suit up Week 1. When healthy, the 2018 first-round pick will serve as a pillar of the Broncos' pass rush.
