Denver Broncos outside linebacker Bradley Chubb is set to miss some time after he undergoes ankle surgery to remove a bone spur. The surgery is not expected to keep him out for the season, but he will be on injured reserve for some time. If the surgery goes well the estimated recovery time is six to eight weeks. This is a setback for Chubb and the Broncos, but the team should get him back in time for a push for the 2021 NFL Playoffs.
#Broncos OLB Bradley Chubb’s timetable to return will depend on how surgery to remove a bone spur goes on Wednesday. These are generally 6 to 8 weeks. So an extended absence for Chubb, who likely is headed to IR.

Bradley Chubb is a key young member of the Broncos defense, but so far injuries have slowed him down. This ankle injury isn’t season-ending and hopefully, the recovery goes well. In just one game so far this year Chubb has recorded just one tackle. For his career, he has 124 tackles and 84 solo tackles. He also has 20.5 sacks, 28 tackles for a loss, 46 quarterback hits, and four forced fumbles.
