  • Broncos' Bradley Chubb: Kicks off year with two sacks

    Chubb notched five tackles (four solo), two sacks and one forced fumble during Monday's 17-16 loss to the Seahawks. Chubb looks like himself after having been limited to seven games in 2021, and he operated as one of Denver's lone bright spots on defense Week 1. Multiple ankle injuries prevented Chubb from recording a single sack last season, but he will have another chance to build upon his 2022 total Week 2 versus the Texans.

  • Broncos' Bradley Chubb: Expects to rebound this season

    Chubb, who finished the 2021 campaign with 21 tackles and zero sacks in seven games, believes that he's poised to bounce back this coming season, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports. Unlike last summer, when the 26-year-old was hampered by an ankle issue during the offseason, Chubb approaches training camp minus any injury concerns and looks forward to rebounding in 2022. "I feel like things have been building up and building up and it's finally time to let it all out," noted the 2018 first-rounder, who earned a Pro Bowl nod in 2020. As long as he avoids any setbacks, look for Chubb to re-establish himself as a pass-rushing threat for Denver, and in turn an IDP factor, while manning a starting outside linebacker slot opposite newcomer Randy Gregory.

  • Broncos' Bradley Chubb: Questionable with shoulder injury

    Chubb (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Lions, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports. Chubb dealt with an ankle injury this season, but this is the first we're hearing of a shoulder problem for Denver's 2018 first-round pick. He's been limited to three appearances during the campaign and is still searching for his first sack after totaling 7.5 in 14 games last season.

  • Broncos' Bradley Chubb: Will be on pitch count in return

    Broncos head coach Vic Fangio said that Chubb (ankle), who was activated from injured reserve Saturday, will be on a "pitch count" in his return to the lineup Sunday against the Chargers, Nick Kosmider of The Athletic reports. Chubb suffered a minor setback early in the week, but he demonstrated enough progress to gain clearance for his first game action since Week 2. Though he'll be on a limited snap count in his return, the 2018 first-round pick's presence still should be a big boost to Denver's defense.

Chubb has reportedly looked good in practice in his effort to return from IR. He's missed all but Week 2 so far this season, so it makes sense to ease him back into action.

  • Broncos' Bradley Chubb: Looks good in practice

    Chubb (ankle) has looked and felt good in practice this week according to head coach Vic Fangio, George Stoia III of The Denver Gazette reports.

  • Broncos' Bradley Chubb: Back at practice

    Broncos head coach Vic Fangio said Chubb (ankle) will return to practice Monday, Nick Kosmider of The Athletic reports. Denver likely will designate Chubb for return from injured reserve later Monday, thereby opening a 21-day window in which the edge rusher can be evaluated in practice. Chubb first injured his ankle in a Sept. 19 game against the Jaguars and was placed on IR three days later. He then underwent arthroscopic surgery to remove a bone spur and received an estimated recovery timeline of 6-to-8 weeks, so he could have an outside shot at returning to action Sunday against the Chargers if he looks good in his return to practice.

Broncos' coach Vic Fangio told reporters the arthroscopic procedure was a "roaring success." Chubb will likely be sidelined for the next 6-to-8 weeks as he recovers from Wednesday's ankle surgery. In Chubb's absence, Malik Reed is expected to fill in at outside linebacker.

According to Stevens, the 6-foot-4, 275-pounder wants to play in the preseason in order to test his ankle. Chubb's next opportunity to do so comes Aug. 21 when the Broncos visit the Seahawks in Week 2 of the preseason.
