The bad news for the Denver Broncos keeps getting worse. Adam Schefter of ESPN has reported that Bradley Chubb has torn his ACL and will miss the rest of the 2019 season.

You may recall that Chubb left the game and ended up coming back in. Schefter is reporting that he came back into the game with his knee injury. It apparently wasn’t just “cramping” as it was reported on during the live broadcast.

This is a devastating loss for the Broncos defense. The unit is already struggling with depth concerns and this could open the flood gates in the run game.

More on this story as it develops.
