  • Gordon's attorneys entered a not guilty plea for his DUI charge from Oct. 14, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports. Gordon recently had a virtual court hearing, and his next hearing is scheduled for Feb. 24. It sounds like the case will be resolved within the next few months, so Gordon could be suspended for the start of the 2021 regular season. He'll be entering the second season of a two-year contract after rushing for 986 yards and nine touchdowns in his first year with the Broncos.

  • Gordon ran for 986 yards and nine touchdowns on 215 carries in 2020 while adding 32 catches on 44 targets for 158 yards and a touchdown. He lost four fumbles during the season. The debate in Denver heading into the season was how the Broncos would find ways to get the ball into the hands of its two talented backs -- Gordon and Phillip Lindsay.  The answer was largely just to feed Gordon. Gordon averaged 16.5 touches per game to Lindsay's 11.4 during the 2020 season and the raw touch numbers show greater disparity as Lindsay missed five full games with toe, knee and hip injuries. Gordon proved to be the difference in a couple of Denver's wins, including those against the Jets and Dolphins. His abilities as an inside runner and in the passing game also seemed to make him a better fit than Lindsay in Pat Shurmur's offense. Gordon's fumbles were a major issue and arguably cost the Broncos the season opener against Tennessee and almost came back to bite them against Miami. He also faces a suspension stemming from a DUI to start the 2021 campaign. The offseason won't, however, have as many questions as last: Gordon is the lead back in Mile High.

  • Gordon carried the ball 26 times for 93 yards and a touchdown and caught four of six targets for 17 yards in Sunday's 32-31 loss to the Raiders. His first season in Denver proved to be a fruitful one, as Gordon finished the campaign with 986 rushing yards and nine TDs in 15 games, although he didn't contribute as much as a receiver as he had in his last few years as a Charger. With Phillip Lindsay a restricted free agent in the offseason, Gordon could well find himself taking on a bigger workload in 2021 if the Broncos don't prioritize bringing in more backfield help next year.

  • Gordon carried the ball 16 times for 79 yards in Sunday's 19-16 loss to the Chargers. He just missed posting a yards per carry of at least 5.0 for the fourth straight game, and Gordon saw his largest carry volume since Week 7. With Phillip Lindsay (hip) on IR, expect Gordon to see a big workload again in Week 17 against a vulnerable Raiders defense that just gave up 169 scrimmage yards and two TDs to the Dolphins' Myles Gaskin.

  • Gordon is set to be the Broncos' lead back Sunday versus the Chargers with Phillip Lindsay (hip/knee) sidelined and Royce Freeman (hip) questionable for the contest, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports. When Lindsay sat out Weeks 2 through 4 earlier this season, Gordon drew 58 touches, turning them into 240 yards from scrimmage and three TDs. During that same three-game stretch, Freeman earned 12 touches, but with his status up in the air for Week 16, Gordon could see 20-plus touches for the third time on the campaign.
