After going 5-11-0 in the 2020 NFL season, the Denver Broncos missed out on the playoffs for the fifth year in a row. They're hoping to turn things around in 2021 and one way that they can do that is if outside linebacker Bradley Chubb is at full health.
A 2020 Pro-Bowler, Chubb underwent offseason surgery in May after it was revealed that he had bone spurs needing to be removed from his ankle. Even though it wasn't a major procedure, it's understandable that some people would wonder if it would impact his time at Denver's training camp. The good news is that it looks like Chubb won't have to miss any time.
Bradley Chubb Injury Update
NFL Network's James Palmer reported on Wednesday, that Chubb should be good to go for the Bronco's training camp next month. The team will monitor his conditioning as time goes on since the surgery hasn't allowed him to work out as often as he'd like.
Chubb appeared in 14 games for the Broncos in 2020, continuing to be one of their most important defensive pieces. He finished the campaign with 42 tackles, 7.5 sacks and a forced fumble. Pro Football Focus also gave him a 70.7 overall grade for his work, which further shows his importance to any future success that Denver hopes to have.
The Broncos currently have +156 odds to make the playoffs, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. Meanwhile, their Super Bowl 56 odds are set to +2500 (T-10th). If the Broncos hope to turn those odds into a championship run, they're going to need Chubb to be as healthy as possible.
