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.
Head coach Vic Fangio said Chubb (knee) may be limited against the Titans in Week 1, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports. "He's not 100 percent," Fangio said. "Might be a pitch count but it's not a conditioning pitch count."
Chubb isn't fully healthy after tearing his ACL in Week 4 last season, but he's healthy enough to get on the field in some capacity. He averaged 60 snaps per game in 2019 before the injury, and he could lose a hefty chunk of that work to start the season. Von Miller appears ready to handle a full workload on the opposite side, though, so Jeremiah Attaochu and Malik Reed will compete for the snaps Chubb leaves behind.
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.
Chubb (knee) participated in contact drills during Tuesday's practice, Nick Kosmider of The Athletic reports.
The 2018 first-round pick has rehabbed the torn ACL he sustained in Week 4 last year. Not only did Chubb return to contact drills, but he also performed at a high level opposite Von Miller, teaming up to give the second-team offense a headache. This could be a menacing tandem yet again in 2020. When Chubb and Miller played all 16 games together in 2018, they combined for 26.5 sacks.
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.
Chubb (knee) was shown making explosive cuts in a workout video posted to his personal Twitter account Monday, Troy Renck of TheDenverChannel.com reports.
Chubb is shown in the video making sharp cuts, utilizing burst, and employing flexible leverage, all without the use of a knee brace. The 24-year-old is by all accounts making significant progress in his recovery from the second ACL surgery on his left knee, an injury which limited him to just four contests in 2019. Having exploded with 12 sacks as a rookie in 2018, avoiding any setbacks in his recovery would make Chubb one of the top rebound candidates for the 2020 campaign.
Chubb (knee) is apparently moving at full speed and ready to go for 2020, according to Grant Gordon of NFL.com reports.
Chubb suffered a partially torn ACL in Week 4 of the 2019 season. He was looking to follow up a highly successful rookie campaign, but it was ultimately cut short. However, he seems on track to to give it another go in 2020 assuming he avoids any setbacks. He will presumably look to surpass the 12 sacks he managed as a rookie in 2018.
Defensive coordinator Ed Donatell said Thursday that he's optimistic about the chances of Chubb (knee) being ready to go for Week 1, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports.
Chubb is by all accounts recovering well from the partially torn ACL he sustained Week 4 last season, and he's already resumed running without issue. It still looks as though the star pass rusher is on track to participate in training camp activities, which would in turn bode well for his odds of kicking off the regular season without significant restrictions. Chubb notched 12 sacks as a rookie in 2018, but he only managed to take down opposing quarterbacks once across four appearances in 2019.
Chubb (knee) isn't expected to be ready for the offseason program but should be cleared for training camp, James Palmer of NFL Network reports.
Chubb sustained a partially torn ACL in Week 4 and was shut down for the season after undergoing surgery in October. The 23-year-old was expected to be ready for OTAs, but the team has pushed his timeline back to ensure the 2018 first-round pick is ready for the 2020 campaign. Chubb posted one sack over four games this year, but he racked up 12 sacks in his rookie campaign.
GM John Elway said Thursday that Chubb (knee) is expected to be ready for the start of OTAs in May, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports.
Elway also said Chubb, who underwent surgery to address his torn ACL in October, could be healthy in time for "even the offseason program," which kicks off in April. Barring any setbacks, the 2018 first-round pick can be considered on track to begin the 2020 season without limitations. The Broncos will rely on Chubb as an impact player on defense opposite Von Miller.
Chubb (knee) is making progress in his recovery from ACL surgery and expects to resume running next week, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic reports.
Chubb remains on track to kick off the 2020 season without limitations, and he'll be ready for training camp in July barring any setbacks. The 2018 first-round pick appeared in four contests during the 2019 campaign, recording 21 tackles (16 solo), one sack, one defended pass and one forced fumble.
Chubb's recovery from surgery on his torn ACL is going well, and he should be ready for training camp in July, Ryan O'Halloran of the Denver Post reports.
Chubb's progress thus far puts him on track to start the 2020 season without limitations. The North Carolina State product generated 12 sacks over 16 games in his rookie season and added one through the first four games in 2019.
Chubb (knee) has undergone surgery to address his torn ACL, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.
Chubb has reportedly already begun rehab activities, so his recovery appears to be right on track. The standout linebacker is working to get back to full health in time for the beginning of the 2020 season.
Chubb (knee) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Ben Swanson of the Broncos' official site reports.
After tearing his ACL during Sunday's loss to the Jaguars, this move was expected. The team is planning on using a committee approach in his place for now, as Malik Reed and Justin Hollins will rotate with recently acquired Jeremiah Attaochu at strongside linebacker. Chubb will look to recover before the 2020 opener.
Chubb has a torn ACL and is out for the remainder of the season, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Chubb suffered the left knee injury during Sunday's 26-24 loss to the jaguars, per Schefter. He managed to return to the game after hurting his knee, but further examination Monday revealed the severity of his injury. The second-year pro is now slated to undergo season-ending surgery, and he'll end the 2019 campaign with 21 tackles (16 solo), one sack, one defended pass and one forced fumble.
Chubb (knee) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic reports.
Chubb was limited in Wednesday's practice with a knee injury, but it doesn't appear as though the issue was anything severe. Barring any setbacks, Chubb looks primed for his usual starting role opposite Von Miller versus the Jaguars on Sunday.
Chubb (knee) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports.
The severity of Chubb's injury remains undisclosed at this time, though it's positive that he wasn't held out of Wednesday's practice session entirely. The second-year linebacker will have two more opportunities to fully participate in practice ahead of Sunday's tilt against the Jaguars.
Chubb recorded five tackles, three tackles for loss, and a quarterback hit during Sunday's 27-16 loss in Green Bay.
The Broncos still -- somehow -- do not have a sack or a turnover despite plenty of established talent on defense. Chubb almost broke through Sunday, but Aaron Rodgers scrambled out and threw the ball away on several close calls. The lack of sacks is frustrating, but Chubb continues tough against the run and will get a rookie quarterback in Gardner Minshew to chase Sunday when Denver faces the Jaguars.
