NFL: Philadelphia Eagles at Denver Broncos Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

The Denver Broncos can get right back into the thick of the AFC West battle with a win this week over the visiting Los Angeles Chargers. A win would put all three AFC West teams a game back from the Kansas City Chiefs. That would be a much better place than Denver has been by Week 12 in each of the last give seasons.

Game Preview

In a bit of a surprising move, the Broncos went ahead and activated Bradley Chubb off of injured reserve on Saturday making him eligible to play against the Chargers. He had a setback during practice this week, but Denver went ahead and activated him anyway to play.

Head coach Vic Fangio noted that he would be on a pitch count, but this fan worries they are, once again, rushing Chubb back too soon. There will be a lot of fan angst on Twitter if Chubb hobbles off the field during the game. Staying healthy for long stretches of time has been a thing with Chubb, so fans are rightfully concerned the issue has less to do with Chubb being injury-prone and more to do with coaches impatiently pushing him back onto the field too quickly.

Anyway, I digress. A healthy Chubb on the field is a better situation for the Broncos than him not being on the field. I like Malik Reed, but he has been a liability at times in run support and Chubb is definitely the better of the two in both run defense and rushing the passer. I just hope Chubb doesn’t aggravate his injury and it caused him to miss several more games when resting one additional week would have meant him being ability the rest of the season.

Here’s how to watch.
