The Facts: Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay is expected to miss a few weeks with turf toe.
Diehards Line:His absence will leave Melvin Gordon as the clear lead-back for at least a few weeks. He saw all but one carry and one reception after Lindsay left their Monday Night Football game versus the Titans. The Broncos offense was uninspiring in their opener but should improve as the schedule opens up. Gordon, getting all of the backfield's touches for Denver, could be an RB1 in the first half of the season.
