Chubb has been one of the few players allowed to work out in the facility because he is still rehabbing from a torn ACL that he suffered during Week 4 of the 2019 season.
Earlier this year when the stay at home orders were put in place, the only players that were still allowed in the facility were individuals that were already undergoing rehab. Chubb said it has been very quiet and sometimes eerie around the facility:
“It was weird, just very quiet,” Chubb said via Jeff Legwold of ESPN. “And it was some days people didn't feel like talking it would be a quiet room, just working out in a quiet room. We did a good job trying to make sure we had that same energy every day in training room, but it definitely wore on you seeing the same people over and over and doing the same thing over and over.”
Chubb admitted that at first he didn't fully understand the restrictions because he didn't really realize the real concerns with the COVID-19 pandemic. After Von Miller was positively diagnosed with it is when Chubb really started to realize how serious it was:
“It's trainers and like four guys now, it's still a small group,” Chubb said. “Something we're very lucky to be able to do. … Looking back when you see that stuff on the news, in the beginning I didn't know how serious it was. … When Von got sick, it was like ‘OK, this thing is serious,' everything he was going through, the symptoms he had, you could tell it was something people had to take serious.”
The NFL is now starting to ease up restrictions, so even if all players aren't allowed back in the facility, there is going to be more a little more buzz in the facilities in the next couple of weeks.
