Denver Broncos: Bradley Chubb done for the day with ankle injury
So much for Bradley Chubb and Von Miller being back together again. It didn’t last long.
After missing the team’s season opener, Chubb was active for Week 2 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. But an ankle injury has knocked him out for the rest of the day in a game that the Broncos currently lead 17-7.
The Broncos got off to a rough start, allowing the Jaguars to take their opening drive down the field for a score but they have since settled in and are controlling the action. Unfortunately, an injury to another star player is something the Broncos are going to have to deal with.
Chubb recorded one tackle in the game before leaving with the injury. It remains to be seen how significant this ankle injury is, but it has to be somewhat serious if he is not going to be back in this game. Of course, some will question why he played at all in this one.
We talked earlier about how this would be the first time Chubb and Miller were on the field together in nearly two years. It’s starting to become an ugly trend for this team and the handwriting is on the wall as to what the media types will soon be talking about.
Is Chubb worth keeping at this point for the Broncos?
Though he made the Pro Bowl last year, it is a legitimate question as the 25-year old has dealt with multiple injuries already in his career. Meanwhile, the 32-year old Miller has recorded his third sack of the season, taking down Trevor Lawrence in the third quarter to shut down a Jaguars drive.
