Injury Report: Bradley Chubb's injured ankle 'acted up again' vs. Jaguars, timeline for return not yet known


ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Outside linebacker Bradley Chubb's ankle "acted up again" on Sunday against the Jaguars, and Head Coach Vic Fangio said he does not yet know when Chubb may be able to return.

"He tried to go with it," Fangio said Monday. "He had medical clearance. He wanted to do it. It acted up again."

Chubb suffered the injury late in the first half of the Broncos' win over the Jaguars. He was limited in practice last week and was questionable for the game, but he started the game in Jacksonville in his first appearance of the season. Chubb played 19 snaps in the Broncos' win.

Fangio said he did not consider holding Chubb out of the game.

"Not really, cause the medical people thought it was basically going to be the same yesterday as it would be next Sunday," Fangio said. "They felt good about letting him play, he felt good about playing. So he played."

Fangio also confirmed that linebacker Josey Jewell suffered a pectoral injury, but he said he did not have a "total verdict" on the severity of the injury. Fangio expected to have a more definitive diagnosis by Tuesday. NFL Network's Ian Rapaport reported the injury would sideline Jewell for the year.

The Broncos otherwise avoided serious injuries during their Week 2 win. Fangio said wide receiver Courtland Sutton had a bruise from the game, but that he is fine and his surgically repaired knee is "great."

Wide receiver Tim Patrick suffered a hip injury during the game, but Fangio did not seem overly concerned.

"[He] actually came in today better than we thought he would," Fangio said. "Don't think it's anything too bad."
