As of right now, Pro Bowl linebacker Bradley Chubb will take the field for the Broncos at MetLife Stadium. But that was in doubt for a while on Tuesday.
9News’ Mike Klis reports Chubb “was arrested Tuesday on a failure-to-appear warrant stemming from traffic infractions.”
Chubb was charged May 6 for misdemeanor driving under restraint and also for having his license plates expired for 60-plus days. He was scheduled to appear in Arapahoe County court on August 6. When he didn’t appear, a warrant was issued for failure to appear.
ESPN reports “Sgt. Jeff Miller of the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office said Chubb was stopped late Tuesday morning for a ‘minor traffic infraction’ and after the warrant was discovered Chubb was detained at the Douglas County Detention Center until Tuesday afternoon when Chubb posted ‘a small bond.’
Klis reports the Broncos released a statement on Chubb: “We are aware of the matter, which was related to an unresolved traffic issue that has now been addressed.”
Per Klis, “Broncos head coach Vic Fangio said he believes Chubb will be able to play in the Broncos’ regular season-opening game Sunday against the New York Giants in New Jersey.”

Chubb is a key cog in the Broncos’ pass rush. He had 7.5 sacks last season but as a rookie in 2018, he set a career-high with 12 sacks. Chubb was held out of practice last week and returned Monday as the 25-year-old recovers from offseason ankle surgery he had in May.
The Broncos and Giants are set for a Week 1 kickoff Sunday at 4:25 p.m ET. Five days later, the Giants will visit the Washington Football Team for a prime-time NFC East showdown in Week 2 on Thursday Night Football.
