Bradley Chubb injury update: Broncos linebacker (ACL) out for season

first_img Mitchell Trubisky injury update: Bears QB has dislocated left shoulder, report says “He (Chubb) was as surprised I think as anybody this morning when he woke up feeling the way he did.”Chubb, the No. 5 pick from the 2018 NFL Draft, has helped form a dynamic pass-rushing duo alongside linebacker Von Miller and is one of the more promising young players in the league.Chubb totaled 60 tackles and 12 sacks as a rookie last season, and his absence will certainly hurt a Broncos team struggling with its defensive identity.Denver ranks 25th in the NFL with only five sacks this year after tallying 44 in 2018 — the eighth-highest mark in the league.The winless Broncos will travel to Los Angeles to face the Chargers (2-2) Sunday, and Chubb’s impact will be missed. The pass-rusher exited the Broncos’ 26-24 loss to Jacksonville in Week 4 with cramps before returning later on, but Fangio confirmed the cramping was separate from Chubb’s knee injury.”Well he did have cramps. That was separate,” Fangio said. “Then he did hurt his knee at some point in the game, but he felt good enough to come back in.” Related News Sam Darnold update: Jets QB (mono) cleared for non-contact drillscenter_img Bradley Chubb’s 2019 season has been cut short.Denver coach Vic Fangio announced Monday that Chubb tore his ACL Sunday and won’t play again in 2019. “It’s a huge loss. He’s one of our better players. …Great player, person, leader, all that,” Fangio said.last_img read more

Spurs shed ‘soft touch’ image as Pochettino leaves his mark

first_imgLondon, United Kingdom | AFP | Tottenham have been derided as a soft touch for decades, but the sight of Eden Hazard being hounded into submission showed Mauricio Pochettino’s side are finally shedding their nice-guy image.The perception of Tottenham as entertaining but ultimately flawed under-achievers has haunted a succession of managers at the north London club.But Pochettino has worked tirelessly to imbue his squad with a more ruthless streak and Tuesday’s hard-fought 1-0 win over Chelsea in the League Cup semi-final first leg suggested his efforts have not been in vain.Tangible evidence of Tottenham’s new-found steely side could be seen in the way Hazard trudged wearily down the Wembley tunnel at full-time.In a bid to subdue Chelsea’s influential playmaker, Hazard was subjected to 90 minutes of intense tackling from Tottenham, who fouled the Belgian seven times — more than any other team this season.While Tottenham were aggressive in their approach, it was hardly the work of a group of hatchet men intent on kicking an opponent into submission.Pochettino wanted Hazard to realise nothing would come easily for him, that Tottenham players would be hassling him at every turn.It was the kind of shrewd game-plan that teams from Pochettino’s native Argentina have often used successfully and it worked to perfection against Chelsea.Hazard, already hampered by Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri’s decision to use him as a centre forward, found it difficult to find the space to flourish as Tottenham crowded him out time and again.The Spurs boss would not go into detail when asked about his team’s treatment of Hazard, but he did acknowledge he was the man to stop. “He has unbelievable quality. He was involved in the game a lot,” Pochettino said.“It is so difficult to stop him. We are talking about a player on the same level as Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.”– Glory game –Such a smart yet cynical approach would, in the past, have been anathema to a club raised on the legendary Danny Blanchflower’s famous claim that “the game is about glory, it is about doing things in style and with a flourish”.Yet Pochettino has no qualms about his desire to make Tottenham more streetwise.“If you think about how we can improve our squad, it’s not only about adding quality players, but sometimes you need to be a little bit naughty,” Pochettino said this week.“We are so nice and in that game we showed that we can be a little naughty.”While Harry Kane, whose penalty winner made him Tottenham’s fourth highest all-time scorer, remains Pochettino’s most valuable asset, it was the tenacity of a well-drilled defence that emerged as the key to victory against Chelsea.With Tottenham searching for their first trophy since 2008, maintaining that hard-nosed style will be essential if Pochettino is at last to win the first silverware of his managerial career.There have been too many moments in Pochettino’s reign when Tottenham have shrunk in the spotlight.Share on: WhatsApp Pages: 1 2last_img read more
