Denver Broncos outside linebacker Bradley Chubb was arrested Tuesday on a failure-to-appear warrant stemming from traffic violations.
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 Arapohoe County, Colorado court on August 6. When he didn’t appear, a warrant was issued for his failure to appear.
The 25-year-old Chubb was the Broncos’ first-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. he set a Broncos’ team record with 12 sacks as a rookie, but suffered a torn ACL injury last season. Chubb bounced back last year to record 7.5 sacks and earn his first Pro Bowl berth.
Chubb underwent arthroscopic ankle surgery in May but was able to return to take part in the Broncos training camp and also played in the team’s final two preseason games.
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.
