The Denver BroncosBradley Chubb will have arthroscopic surgery on his left ankle on Wednesday and the Pro Bowl outside linebacker says he hopes to return later this season.

The procedure is to remove a bone spur from the ankle. A timeframe for his return will become clearer after the surgery.

“I did everything I could to manage it and to try to come back and play,” Chubb told the team’s website. “I took the New York [Giants] week … trying to calm it down just a little bit, and then this Jacksonville week I tried to do everything to get back on the field and unfortunately, all those things weren’t working in my favor. The thing [to do] is now just to go in, clean it up and be right back.”

Chubb, who sat out the Broncos’ Week 1 victory over the Giants, made his season debut last Sunday against the Jaguars but had to depart the victory early.

The 2018 first-round draft pick was selected to his first Pro Bowl last season. He has 20.5 sacks in 35 games.

Chubb isn’t the only Broncos defender to be sidelined by injury this week. The Broncos placed inside linebacker Josey Jewell on injured reserve Tuesday with a pectoral injury.
