Bradley Chubb is, by all accounts, one of the best defensive players in the ACC and, frankly, the entire country. The N.C. State defensive end also happens to be the cousin of star Georgia running back Nick Chubb, but thanks to his own play on the field Bradley is certainly blazing his own path.
However, Chubb had a bit of a hiccup on Saturday during the game against the Pittsburgh Panthers. In short, he suffered a dislocated finger and, well, you might want to turn away if you get squeamish while viewing unsightly injuries of this magnitude.
Wildly, Chubb was able to return to the game in short order and reporting on the field indicated that he simply got his fingers “popped back in” and taped up before coming back on to the gridiron. In total, he contributed two tackles, but Chubb is always a big-time deterrent for the opposition and his presence almost certainly aided in leading the Wolfpack to a 35-17 win over Pitt.
This is an example of an injury that absolutely looks worse than it actually is in the grand scheme, but the craziness of seeing a finger move in that way will never become “normal” and it is a wonder Chubb was able to return so quickly.
