Broncos Blog: Questionable OLB Bradley Chubb vs. Jaguars | Broncos
ENGLEWOOD – For the second week in a row, Broncos outside linebacker Bradley Chubb is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game.
Chubb, who did not play against the Giants in Week 1, might not play again this weekend after being limited throughout the week in training.
“He did (Thursday) about the same thing as Wednesday,” coach Vic Fangio said on Friday. “He did more today, so hopefully he will be able to do it. We’ll see.”
Right guard Graham Glasgow’s status appears to be in doubt this weekend, having experienced an irregular heartbeat during the Giants game and not training all week. Glasgow is listed as “doubtful” with the plan to play Netane Muti if Glasgow is unable to play.
“Yeah, it all came back on him,” Fangio said of Glasgow. “All the tests were positive. You’re supposed to say ‘negative’ but positive as we see them.”
Other injuries include questionable linebacker Jonas Griffith (back), and defensive lineman Shamar Stephen (back) and Shelby Harris (wrist) who will both play against the Jaguars on Sunday.
Ford in special teams
Newly acquired cornerback Mike Ford made a good first impression with the Broncos, playing mostly against special teams.
Special teams coach Tom McMahon said on Friday he was pleased with Ford’s performance against the Giants, aside from the unnecessary harshness penalty he received in the second quarter.
“I thought Mike played well. He’s got that one mistake, the sideline penalty cost us 15 yards, ”said McMahon. “You just have to keep your head on that one. He really helps us. It brings energy. The way he plays without his words – he plays so fast and everyone is trying to play at top speed. “
Johnson looking for turnovers
There has been no greater importance this offseason to the Broncos’ defense than creating more take out. Against the Giants, linebackers Josey Jewell and Alexander Johnson managed to force a key fumble in the third quarter that was a game-changer.
Johnson is hopeful that he and the defense can continue to make those plays throughout the season.
“That’s pretty much one of the biggest goals that I think (for) our unit is – if we can get our offense with the ball we’re going to guarantee that we can win games if we can keep getting the ball. balloon, ”Johnson said. “So that’s one of the biggest goals as a unit and one of my biggest goals – to keep looking for that ball.”
