    Texans' Phillip Lindsay: Heading to Houston

    The Houston Texans and Phillip Lindsay (hip) agreed to a one-year contract Friday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.Lindsay joins a backfield with David Johnson at the top of the depth chart and newcomer Mark Ingram also in the mix. That said, Lindsay is used to sharing RB reps with others after three seasons in Denver, especially last year when he took a backseat to Melvin Gordon. For his career, Lindsay has averaged 4.8 yards per carry, hauled in 77 of 109 targets and scored 18 touchdowns in 42 contests.

    Phillip Lindsay: Becomes unrestricted free agent

    Phillip Lindsay (hip) is now an unrestricted free agent, with the Broncos rescinding his RFA tender, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.The Broncos had given Lindsay an original-round tender, allowing other teams to sign him to an offer sheet without forfeiting a draft pick. It sounds like the Broncos were preparing for the running back to leave, so they seemingly did him a favor in allowing him to be an unrestricted free agent instead of restricted. Lindsay now faces a simpler process for finding his next team, while the Broncos can focus on finding a cheaper backup running back behind Melvin Gordon. They still have Royce Freeman under contract for one more season, and Mike Boone agreed to a two-year contract Wednesday.

    Broncos' Phillip Lindsay: Given lower tender

    The Denver Broncos have tendered Phillip Lindsay (hip) as a restricted free agent, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.Lindsay famously went undrafted back in 2018, so giving him an original-round tender means the Broncos can match any offer sheet he receives, but they won't be entitled to compensation in the form of draft picks if he does sign elsewhere. Denver also had the option of applying a second-round tender to Lindsay, which would've virtually guaranteed he sticks around next season, but that would have raised his minimum salary from $2.13 million to $3.38 million. The two-time 1,000-yard rusher will get to negotiate with other clubs and test his value.

    Broncos' Phillip Lindsay: Likely getting RFA tender

    Denver Broncos GM George Paton said the team plans to give Phillip Lindsay (hip/knee) a restricted free agent tender, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.The first option, a second-round tender, would all but ensure Lindsay stays with the Broncos, though it also costs $3.38 million. An original-round tender, on the other hand, costs only $2.13 million, but it also means there's no draft-pick compensation involved, which makes other teams far more likely to sign the running back to an offer sheet. While injuries defined his 2020 campaign, Lindsay has largely been an effective runner for the Broncos, and he could take on added importance in September if Melvin Gordon gets a three-game suspension for his DUI arrest. Lindsay missed the final two weeks of 2020 with a hip and knee injuries, but there hasn't been any report of offseason surgery or a lengthy recovery period.

    Broncos' Phillip Lindsay: Plans to attack 2021 differently

    Phillip Lindsay (hip/knee) indicated Wednesday that the Denver Broncos' signing of Melvin Gordon last offseason affected his approach during the 2020 season, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports. "I was in battle mode. Everything caught me off guard with [Gordon] coming in. You can burn yourself out like that," Lindsay said.Perhaps Lindsay was pressing too hard to prove his value, but injuries also seemingly played a role in his reduced output in 2020. After breaking the 1,000-yard rushing threshold in both of his first two NFL seasons, Lindsay sat out five games during the most recent campaign to finish with 530 scrimmage yards and one total touchdown. He dealt with myriad injuries, including a hip/knee issue that kept the 26-year-old inactive Weeks 16 and 17. Defenses were also able to key in on Lindsay as a rusher, with Gordon serving as the clear No. 1 pass-catching back. Lindsay said that he's going to take a different mental approach in 2021, but it remains unclear whether he'll stay with the organization. He's a restricted free agent this offseason, while Gordon is on the books for 2021 but could face a potential suspension to begin the season due to a DUI arrest that occurred in mid-October.

    Broncos' Phillip Lindsay: Injuries, scheme lead to down year

    Phillip Lindsay finished the 2020 campaign with 502 yards and a touchdown on 118 carries. He added seven catches on 14 targets for 28 yards.So much for the one-two punch Denver had hoped to establish on the ground with Lindsay and free-agent addition Melvin Gordon. The two each had 40 rushing yards in the same game just twice all season and Lindsay himself topped that total just four times all season. Part of that can be attributed to the host of toe, hip and knee injuries Lindsay suffered throughout the season, causing him to miss five games and be hampered during several others. There's also the question of Lindsay's fit within Pat Shurmur's offense, which does not feature many of the stretch plays that Lindsay has thrived on early in his career and relies on backs to be solid contributors in the passing game, which is not Lindsay's strong suit. It'd be foolish for the Denver Broncos not to tender Lindsay in the offseason given the spark he has provided the offense -- including in games against the Patriots, Chargers and Dolphins this season -- but he'll be heading into his potential final season in Denver having come off a career-worst year in which he rushed for half his previous career low in yards and bottomed out in most other statistical categories.

    Broncos' Phillip Lindsay: Shut down for season

    The Denver Broncos placed Phillip Lindsay (hip/knee) on injured reserve Saturday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.This week, Lindsay was tagged with the two body parts that have hindered his ability to play this season, and Denver now has decided to shut him down for the campaign. A restricted free agent in the offseason, the team may opt to let him walk after Melvin Gordon successfully led the backfield in his first campaign in the Mile High City. Whatever befalls Lindsay in a few months, he'll end his third year as a pro with 118 carries for 502 yards and one touchdown while gathering in seven of 14 passes for 28 more yards in 11 appearances.

    Broncos' Phillip Lindsay: Iffy for Sunday

    Phillip Lindsay (hip/knee) won't practice Thursday, Jeff Legwold of ESPN.com reports.Coach Vic Fangio noted that with the team off for Christmas, "maybe" Lindsay will be able to practice Saturday before the team heads for Los Angeles. With that in mind, Legwold suggests that Lindsay will "have to improve significantly over next two days" in order to play Sunday against the Chargers. If Lindsay isn't able to suit up this weekend, added carries would be available for Melvin Gordon, along with Royce Freeman (hip), assuming he's active.
