AFC Notes: Broncos, Chargers, Chiefs


Broncos LB Bradley Chubb was an extremely harsh critic of himself when assessing his 2022 season, as ankle injuries have continued to stall the early part of his career.

“My worst year as a pro,” Chubb said, via Kyle Newman of the Denver Post. “All offseason last year I dealt with an ankle injury, and I was just trying to get back for OTAs. Then, as soon as I got healthy my other ankle went. It was one of those things that were tiring on me mentally and physically. I’m nowhere near where I want to be.”
