Broncos news: Bradley Chubb showing off healthy knee post-ACL injury.
It's a very slow time for Denver Broncos news, but outside linebacker Bradley Chubb blessed Broncos Country with a video of him working out on the field and looking 100 percent healthy.
This video is the first evidence we have seen of Chubb out on the football field doing football drills, making cuts and putting pressure on his knee after tearing his ACL in 2019.
The loss of Chubb last season was a substantial blow to the Broncos' defense, although the team did a decent job of replacing him by committee, at least in terms of playing competent defense over the course of the regular season.
Chubb was a high-impact player as a rookie for the Broncos, racking up 12 sacks, 14 tackles for loss, and 21 quarterback hits.
It was a slow start for both Chubb and Von Miller at the beginning of the 2019 season, but Chubb notched his first sack of the year before going down with an injury in the game against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Denver.
Even after the injury, Chubb continued to play and had an impact on the game as a pass rusher.
Having a healthy Chubb in the Broncos' defense is going to make everyone that much better. Together, he and Von Miller make up the best edge-rushing duo in the NFL.
Even with the slow start to the 2019 season in terms of sacks, Chubb was well on his way to another tremendously productive year with 10 pressures in four games. Extrapolated over the course of the season, he would have eclipsed his rookie season of 36 and was on pace for 40 pressures.
With the addition of Jurrell Casey in free agency and the return of Chubb, the Broncos are perhaps getting the most substantial reinforcements on the defensive front seven in the entire NFL this coming season.
