Will Broncos outside linebacker Bradley Chubb be ready for opener? “No doubt”

Memo to Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill, running back Derrick Henry and left tackle Taylor Lewan: Broncos outside linebacker Bradley Chubb expects to play in the teams’ Sept. 14 season opener.

“Yeah, no doubt, I feel like I’ll be ready to go,” Chubb said during a video conference Friday.

When the Broncos host Tennessee, it will be 16 days short of one year since Chubb tore his left ACL in a loss to Jacksonville.

The Broncos’ best player at the time of his injury, Chubb’s departure doomed the pass rush and allowed teams to pay additional attention to Von Miller, who had only eight sacks.

Chubb says he will be ready to face the Titans, but his activity will be managed during camp.

“We’re going to play it smart and just try and work back into it because, right now, ...

Nuggets veteran Paul Millsap: National anthem moment “signified what our purpose is down here”

For NBA players stuck in the Orlando bubble, Thursday’s slate of opening games may as well have been the first day of school.

“I got excited, man,” Nuggets veteran Paul Millsap said after practice Friday. “I got excited watching the games.”

From the comfort of his Gran Destino hotel room, Millsap saw Utah stave off New Orleans and then watched as the Lakers staked their superiority over the Clippers. Not that anyone’s counting yet, but both results could end up helping the Nuggets, whose re-start tips off at 11 a.m. Saturday against Miami. They’ll begin their trek just one game back of the No. 2 seed Clippers.

Eid-ul-Adha or Eid-al-Adha is one of the most important festivals celebrated by Muslims all over the world. While people in some countries celebrated Eid on Friday, most parts of India will mark the day on Saturday.

The festival is celebrated to honour the sacrifice made by Ibrahim. According to Islamic scripture, God appeared in the dream of Prophet Ibrahim and ordered him to sacrifice his son Ismail.

The festival of Bakrid comes nearly 70 days after the festival of Eid-ul-Fitr. 

This year, the COVID-19 pandemic has marred the E...
