Broncos linebacker Bradley Chubb is undergoing arthroscopic surgery to remove a bone spur in his ankle

One of the Denver Broncos’ key linebackers is expected to be out for an extended period of time.

The team announced that star outside linebacker Bradley Chubb will undergo ankle surgery to remove a bone spur in his left ankle. There is no timetable for his return, but the team anticipates that he will be able to return late into the 2021 campaign.

He sustained the injury during the first half of the Broncos’ 23-13 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday.

Chubb is particularly upset about not contributing to the team’s early success.

I know these guys are doing everything they can to keep that win streak going,” said Chubb.

“I just wish I could be a part of it. But I know I’m going to be back on the back end of [the season] and making that playoff push. I’m excited about that.”

The 25-year old, who was selected to his first Pro Bowl in 2020, has amassed 124 combined tackles and 20.5 sacks over a span of 35 career NFL games.

Dak Prescott admits he let his emotions get the best of him following Sunday’s disappointing Wild Card loss.

The Dallas Cowboys quarterback took to Twitter to formally apologize for praising fans at AT&T stadium for throwing objects at referees while they were heading back into the tunnel following the team’s 23-17 to the underdog San Francisco 49ers.

The 28-year old was initially criticizing the fans because he thought they were throwing stuff at his teammates. When a reporter corrected him and told him the debris was being aimed at referees, he replied with “Credit to them”

The frustration stems from the controversial ending to the game where the referee disrupted the final play of the game because he wasn’t able to spot the ball in time for a play to be run before the clock ran out.

Texans fire head coach David Culley after just one season

Published

Well that didn’t last long.

The Houston Texans announced that they have parted ways with their head coach David Culley, who’s entire tenure with the organization comes to an end after just 17 games.

“I came to this difficult but necessary decision after reviewing our football operation” said Texans general manager Nick Caserio.

“While a change after one season is unusual, we had philosophical differences over the long-term direction and vision for our program moving forward. We appreciate Coach Culley for helping us navigate through a difficult season, but it is my responsibility to make decisions that I feel are best for our organization.”

The 66-year old, who was initially hired in January 2021, led the team to a 4-13 tenure in his only season with the Texans.

He didn’t have much to work with talent wise on the roster, but clearly the front office didn’t see enough from him to warrant keeping him around for the rest of the rebuild.
