‘Hard Knocks’ episode on Dolphins’ loss to Ravens offers dramatic visuals of Bradley Chubb injury

The seventh episode of HBO reality series “Hard Knocks” tracking the Miami Dolphins late in their season covered two devastating losses, the one against the Baltimore Ravens and that of outside linebacker Bradley Chubb due to the torn ACL in his right knee.

There were dramatic visuals that were difficult to watch of the moment Chubb went down, clutching his injured knee which will keep him out for the remainder of the season.

Chubb was heard telling trainers he couldn’t move the knee with how much pain he was in before being carted off.

Defensive tackle Zach Sieler prayed with conviction in his voice while on a knee for Chubb as he was given medical attention. Outside linebacker Andrew Van Ginkel told Chubb he loves him as he was carted away. Inside linebacker Duke Riley got emotional speaking about Chubb to reporters inside the visitors’ locker room.

Chubb was pictured walking out of M&T Bank Stadium to the team bus on two crutches.

His injury wasn’t the only one suffered in Baltimore. Cornerback Xavien Howard was in a walking boot on his left foot after exiting with the foot injury. Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa complained about the way he landed on his shoulder following a slide on his last snap.

A look was given into how the Dolphins handled the loss, knowing their aspirations of the No. 1 seed in the AFC evaporated but they still have the AFC East crown and a No. 2 seed in the playoffs in front of them with a win in the regular-season finale against the Buffalo Bills.

“Let’s take this ass-whooping and apply it like all we have in front of us is winning the AFC East,” coach Mike McDaniel was seen telling Tagovailoa.

Tyreek Hill couldn’t stop saying “I can’t believe it” after the loss as the stunned faces of Dolphins players were seen walking off the field after the 56-19 defeat.

The week of injuries the Dolphins had going into the game was also put in perspective, although Jaylen Waddle’s ankle injury that kept him out against the Ravens was not included in the coverage.

Tagovailoa told position coach Darrell Bevell that, after the Cowboys game, he had swelling along his injured thumb on the throwing hand that left it purple all the way down the side of his hand. He said it made it tough to grip the football by the end of the game.

Running back Raheem Mostert was heard complaining about what he was experiencing with his ankle injury in team facilities, namely tightness in the area, before missing the Ravens game.

Rookie running back De’Von Achane was seen in a walking boot in the team auditorium due to his toe injury. It’s remarkable he was able to go for 107 rushing yards and a receiving touchdown.

Safety Jevon Holland was shown preparing to play for the first time since missing four games with MCL sprains in both knees.

Tuesday’s episode was the first to feature experienced defensive coordinator Vic Fangio as Miami prepared for Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson.

Holland and fellow safeties DeShon Elliott, Brandon Jones and Elijah Campbell were talking about how much they have enjoyed his scheme since they got accustomed to it earlier in the season over a meal at one of their homes.

It also gave kicker Jason Sanders his moments coming off the previous week’s win over Dallas where he converted five field goals, including three from beyond 50 yards and a short game-winner, to be named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week.

The episode also included neat helmet cam footage of what Tagovailoa sees during practice.
