Injury Report: Broncos hope to increase Bradley Chubb's practice workload ahead of #DENvsJAX


ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Outside linebacker Bradley Chubb is expected to practice on limited basis again on Thursday after he "came out good" from Wednesday's practice, Head Coach Vic Fangio said.

"I'd say he got about somewhere between 12-15 plays [and] did the individual work," Fangio said before practice on Thursday. "Hope to do a little bit more with him today and see where he's at."

Fangio said his level of optimism for Chubb to play against the Jaguars is about the same as it was at this time last week, before Chubb had to miss the season opener.

"I think last week at this time I was still optimistic," Fangio said.

Guard Graham Glasgow was expected to miss practice again on Thursday. Glasgow left MetLife Stadium on Sunday in an ambulance with an irregular heartbeat.

"I became more aware of his situation after the game," Offensive Coordinator Pat Shurmur said. "We were delayed, obviously, leaving, so I called him and texted him. What he did — based on what we had heard was going on with him physically — what he did the other night was super heroic. He battled through it. I guess in the moment we didn't know how big of an issue it was for him. He's a tough sucker. Until he's back, we're going to miss him. And we don't know when that will be, but we're sure glad he's OK. We just want to make sure he's right before we put him back out there, because what he did was super heroic. I think our team can learn from that."

Shelby Harris (wrist) and Shamar Stephen (back) were expected to participate on a limited basis.

After practice, the Broncos announced their official practice designations. Glasgow did not practice, as expected. Chubb and Harris were limited, as was inside linebacker Jonas Griffith (back), who is a new addition to the week's practice report. TE Noah Fant (knee) was a full participant.
