As the Denver Broncos prepare to face the Los Angeles Chargers this weekend, they have a couple of key players on the injury list to keep an eye on. The biggest name is newly selected Pro Bowler in outside linebacker Bradley Chubb and also running back Phillip Lindsay.

Getting Chubb back will be key as he has been an integral part of the defense as one of the league’s leaders in quarterback pressures this season.

“I just think he had a great season,” Head Coach Vic Fangio said of Chubb. “His numbers—sack numbers, hurries and hits—those things were up ranked real high as a total. Obviously, the more good pass rushers you have in there, it helps everybody. We definitely missed Von. Bradley missed Von. We had a lot of games there where our defensive linemen weren’t available—starting defensive lineman. That has an effect. I just think he played great in spite of all the obstacles he had to overcome.”

On the Chargers side of the ball, both wide receiver Keenan Allen and tight end Hunter Henry did not participate on Wednesday, while defensive end Joey Bosa and former-Broncos cornerback Chris Harris Jr. were both limited.
