Broncos Briefs: Linebackers Josey Jewell, Bradley Chubb leave win over Jaguars with first-half injuries

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — The Broncos’ 23-13 win over Jacksonville might be costly after inside linebacker Josey Jewell and outside linebacker Bradley Chubb were injured in the first half.

Coach Vic Fangio said Jewell sustained a “shoulder or pectoral” injury while making a tackle in punt coverage. Jewell was replaced on defense by Justin Strnad. Chubb sustained an ankle injury rushing the passer moments later. He slammed his helmet onto the turf before visiting the medical tent and walked to the locker room. Chubb was making his season debut after missing the New York Giants opener, also with an ankle injury.

“It (stinks) because Bradley’s been doing everything he possibly can to play,” outside linebacker Von Miller said. “If it was anybody but him wearing No. 55, they probably would have sat out the game. To see him get to a point where he’s ready to play and then he gets hurt, it’s tough.”

Right guard Graham Glasgow, who had an irregular heartbeat episode after the Giants game, did not play and was replaced by Netane Muti.

Fangio said the Broncos are “pretty confident” Glasgow will be available next week against the New York Jets.
