Phillip Lindsay (concussion) not practicing for Broncos

Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay (concussion) is not practicing Wednesday.

What It Means:

Melvin Gordon will likely operate as the Broncos' workhorse back if Lindsay isn't cleared for Sunday's Week 8 game against the Los Angeles Chargers. Lindsay out-carried Melvin Gordon 9-5 and out-rushed him 79-20 before being forced to leave at the end of the first half of Denver's Week 7 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. Gordon averaged 19.3 touches and 80.0 yards over three games without Lindsay earlier this season.

Lindsay ranks 21st and Gordon ranks 46th out of 68 running backs with at least 25 carries this season. Gordon averaged 15.3 FanDuel points in three games without Lindsay. The Chargers' rush defense is 9th in numberFire's advanced team rankings.
