Lindsay rushed four times for 18 yards and caught six of his seven targets for 48 more yards in Sunday's 23-20 loss to the Rams.
The Broncos were completely stifled on the ground, gaining just 60 yards on the day, so they made up for it with dumpoff passes to Lindsay. As a result, the 24-year-old saw his fewest carries since Week 3 while getting a season-high seven looks through the air. The rookie has at least 66 total yards in all but one week this season, and he'll look to keep producing Thursday at Arizona.
Lindsay rushed for 61 yards on 12 carries and added 20 yards on three catches during Sunday's 34-16 loss at the Jets.
Lindsay continues to be the biggest spark in this Denver offense, but he has yet to top 15 touches in a game since his Week 1 debut. Part of the issue Sunday was the team falling behind big just before halftime. Still, it appeared the Broncos abandoned the run with plenty of time to spare. Expect Denver to try to get back to the basics Sunday against the Rams as Lindsay's 5.8 yards-per-carry average is too good to keep on the shelf. The Rams offense can force Denver to pass more than it ought to while playing from behind, however, which might limit Lindsay's output.
Lindsay rushed 12 times for 69 yards and a touchdown and caught both of his targets for 10 yards in Monday night's 27-23 loss to the Chiefs.
Lindsay made up for his early disqualification in Week 3 by leading the Broncos in rushing yards and scoring his second touchdown of the season. While his slashing running style was again on display, Lindsay showed some power by reaching in a one-yard score during the third quarter. Facing one of the league's worst defenses thus far, both he and fellow rookie Royce Freeman -- whose eight rushes for 67 yards and a score were nearly identical -- were able to take advantage, and will look to keep their tandem trucking in Week 5 versus the Jets.
Lindsay carried the ball four times for 20 yards during Sunday's 27-14 loss in Baltimore before being ejected in the second quarter, Kyle Fredrickson of The Denver Post reports.
Lindsay got into a scrum at the bottom of a fumble pile and appeared to have taken some jabs at the Ravens. His ejection was a killer for Denver, which has leaned heavily on the rookie after his 213 total yards through the season's first two games. Don't expect the showing of immaturity to place Lindsay too firmly in the doghouse. The Broncos depend on the rookie, not only as a runner and pass-catcher, but as a returner on special teams.
Lindsay rushed 14 times for 107 yards and added four yards with his lone reception in Sunday's 20-19 win over Oakland.
Lindsay did not start but out-touched all other Bronco running backs, 15-11, on the day anyway. He broke a 53-yard run on the Broncos' first drive of the second quarter and began to dominate the backfield touches after that. The 24-year-old ceded goal-line work to Royce Freeman, however, and the latter took advantage by finding the end zone for a third-quarter score. The two should continue to share the load Week 3 at Baltimore.
