Denver Broncos: 5 takeaways from Week 2 win over Jaguars
Is Bradley Chubb worth the trouble?
One of the top stories heading into this game was the fact that Bradley Chubb, who missed Week 1, would be back on the field for the Broncos. It would be the first time in almost two full years that he and Von Miller would play in a game together.
But it didn’t last long.
Chubb left the game with an ankle injury and did not return. It’s another reminder of just how injury-prone the former No. 5 overall pick has been and if you can’t stay on the field, you aren’t worth much to the team.
The extent of Chubb’s injury at this point remains unknown, but if he misses any time at all, it’s going to be too much. Fans are tired of seeing him on the sidelines missing action and the organization is likely growing tired of it as well.
The team has a capable replacement for him in Malik Reed, who is basically a starter at this point because of all of the time he has had to play in relief of Miller and Chubb.
The Broncos picked up Chubb’s fifth-year option, but if they choose to move on from him after the 2022 season, that would be perfectly understandable.
