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.
