Chubb underwent surgery on his ankle earlier this week and is expected to miss OTAs, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.
The surgery appears to be relatively minor as Chubb is still expected to be ready for training camp, but it's a concerning development given it's the same ankle which forced the pass rusher to miss the final two games of last season. The 24-year-old not surprisingly had his fifth-year option picked up by the Broncos earlier this offseason, locking him in with the team for at least the next two seasons.
The Broncos have exercised Chubb's fifth-year option, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports.
Chubb is now signed with Denver through the 2022 campaign, which gives the team added time to negotiate a long-term deal. The soon-to-be 25-year-old rebounded nicely after suffering a torn ACL in 2019, earning his first Pro Bowl in 2020 while racking up 7.5 sacks. If he and Von Miller (ankle) can both stay healthy during the 2021 season, Chubb should see opportunities to build upon his sack total.
Chubb has recovered from ankle injury, Nick Kosmider of The Athletic reports.
Chubb was forced to sit out of the final two games of the 2020 campaign due to an ankle injury, but prior to that, the 24-year-old compiled 42 tackles (26 solo), 7.5 sacks and one forced fumble in his 14 games. With a healthy season ahead of him and Von Miller returning to Denver as well, Chubb will aim to tally more sacks opposite his teammate.
Chubb (ankle) completed the 2020 season with 42 tackles, 11 tackles for loss, 7.5 sacks and a forced fumble.
Chubb rebounded nicely after missing all but four games in 2019 with a torn ACL, spurred by a monster 2.5-sack performance in Week 4 against the Jets. The junior pass rusher earned his first Pro Bowl bid even with his Batman, Von Miller, sidelined for the season with an ankle injury. An ankle injury of his own robbed Chubb of the final two games of the season and his bid to total double-digit sacks for the first time since his rookie year, but -- with a full and healthy offseason ahead of him -- he should make a go of it in 2021 whether Miller, Malik Reed or an offseason acquisition is opposite him.
Chubb (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Raiders, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.
Chubb will conclude his 2020 campaign with back-to-back missed games due to a lingering ankle injury. Jeremiah Attaochu and Derrek Tuszka will be candidates to handle increased roles against the Raiders, with Chubb unavailable.
Chubb (ankle) was a limited practice participant Friday, and he's considered questionable for Sunday's game against Las Vegas, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.
Chubb couldn't go last week against the Chargers, having been held out for the first time all season after suffering an in-game ankle injury Dec. 19 in a blowout loss to Buffalo. The 2018 No. 5 overall draft choice wants to close out the season on the field with his teammates. Chubb did, however, also acknowledge his status is up in the air, saying it's "going to be 50-50" that he suits up against Las Vegas.
Chubb (ankle) submitted a limited practice session Thursday, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.
After sitting out 12 times in 2019 because of an ACL tear in his left knee, Chubb missed his first game of the season last Sunday against the Chargers. The 2018 No. 5 overall draft choice is in a better situation than he was this time last week when he had just been forced to miss a second straight practice. With his first Pro Bowl nod in hand, Chubb can further solidify his status for a Week 17 matchup against the Raiders by improving once more to full participation in Friday's practice.
Chubb (ankle) didn't practice Wednesday, Troy Renck of ABC Denver7 reports.
Chubb missed last week's game due to the same ankle injury, and it's still bothering him at this point. He'll have two more practice sessions to heal up before Sunday's season finale against the Raiders. If Chubb sits again, Anthony Chickillo will likely continue to fill in at weak-side linebacker.
Chubb (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Chargers.
Chubb was initially listed as questionable Friday, but he won't travel with the team and will sit out Week 16. The third-year linebacker has posted a team-high 7.5 sacks through 14 games. Jeremiah Attaochu likely will slot in at weak-side linebacker in Chubb's place Sunday.
Chubb (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Chargers, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.
Coach Vic Fangio previously indicated the 24-year-old is expected to be a game-time decision, so it's no surprise to see him listed as questionable. Chubb's status may not receive additional clarity until the Broncos release their list of inactives about 90 minutes before Sunday's 4:05 p.m. ET kickoff.
Chubb (ankle) worked off to the side during Thursday's practice, and his status for Sunday's contest against the Chargers will "go down to the wire" per coach Vic Fangio, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports.
Chubb was knocked out of last Saturday's game versus Buffalo with the ankle injury, and he missed practice entirely Wednesday. His ability to do some work Thursday -- though he was restricted to light jogging and stretching -- at least gives him a chance to be ready for Sunday's divisional clash. Jeremiah Attaochu and Derrek Tuszka could see more playing time if Chubb is ultimately unable to suit up.
Chubb (ankle) won't practice Thursday, Jeff Legwold of ESPN.com reports.
Coach Vic Fangio noted that "maybe" Chubb can practice Saturday before the team heads for Los Angeles. With that in mind, Chubb's status for Sunday's game against the Chargers is unclear at this stage. Jeremiah Attaochu and Derrek Tuszka are are listed as Chubb's backups on Denver's posted depth chart.
Chubb (ankle) isn't practicing Wednesday, Jeff Legwold of ESPN.com reports.
Chubb was knocked out of last week's loss to the Bills with this injury, and it's still bothering him as the Broncos begin preparations for Sunday's game against the Chargers. Anthony Chickillo would be in line for an expanded role as the weakside linebacker if Chubb's unable to heal up by game day.
Chubb is questionable to return to Saturday's game against the Bills due to an ankle injury, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports.
The 24-year-old had one tackle before the injury was announced late in the third quarter. The Broncos are trailing 41-13 in the closing stages of the fourth quarter, so the team is likely to be cautious about putting Chubb back on the field.
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.
