DOVE VALLEY — The Denver Broncos not only lost their fourth game of the season Sunday, but they also lost one of the major stars of their defense.

Second-year star linebacker Bradley Chubb will miss the rest of the season with a torn ACL suffered in the 26-24 loss to the Jaguars.

Chubb recorded seven tackles, a sack and a forced fumble while playing a majority of the second half of the game.

On the season, the former fifth overall pick compiled 21 tackles, a sack and a forced fumble through the team's first four games.

Head Coach Vic Fangio confirmed Chubb will need surgery and called it "a huge loss" for a player that is considered a "major tempo setter" on the defensive side of the football.
