Denver Broncos Bradley Chubb will undergo ankle surgery and will miss eight to seven weeks

Denver Broncos Bradley Chubb suffered an injury last Sunday when his team beat the Jacksonville Jaguars 23-13. The edge rusher will have to have ankle surgery to remove a bone spur this Wednesday. For now, the team has not announced any timetable for his return.

On Tuesday, the Broncos player told reporters that he felt a "stab type pain" in his ankle while completing a pass rush as the game neared the end of the first half. The player tried to walk off the pain, but unfortunately, he could not withstand the stabbing pain and had to be helped to the beach area.

"I tried to turn the corner, and it wasn't all the way there,'' Chubb told the team's website this Tuesday. "We're 2-0 ... and I know these guys are doing everything they can to keep that win streak going," he continued on the team's site. "I just wish I could be a part of it. But I know I'm going to be back on the back end of [the season] and making that playoff push. I'm excited about that."

Playing with Von Miller

Chubb and star Broncos edge rusher Von Miller have not been able to get on the field together. Hopefully, this corrective surgery will help them finish a season together for the first time since his rookie season.

Unfortunately, the Denver team Chubb and team star rusher Von Miller have not been able to play a complete game since 2019. This Sunday, they were able to run 19 plays together before the injury

Coming back from injury

The team medical staff consulted Dr. Robert Anderson, a renowned ankle surgery specialist. If things go well, the veteran player will be moved to the injured reserve with a recovery time expected to be about seven to eight weeks.
