Friday update: Phillip Lindsay is expected to be listed as questionable on the final injury report, per Zac Stevens. NFL Network is reporting he is expected to be “good to go.”

Thursday update: Phillip Lindsay will return to limited work on Thursday, per Troy Renck. After coach Fangio said that he believed Lindsay would be ready to go against the Chiefs, this is a good step toward that coming to fruition.

The Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay won’t practice on Wednesday, per 9News’ Mike Klis. The good news is that coach Vic Fangio is confident that Lindsay will be able to suit up on Sunday night against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Lindsay left last week’s abomination of an NFL game with a knee injury and didn’t return in a game they had no chance of winning. If we are to believe Fangio, Lindsay shouldn’t have any trouble returning and with an actual quarterback leading the way.

Last week saw the Broncos entire quarterback room placed on the Covid-19 list, pushing practice squad receiver and ex-quarterback Hilton into a big role. There was only one completion for the Broncos all game. This week they get Drew Lock back, which no matter your assessment of his ability, is a huge upgrade for the offense as a whole.

The Chiefs can be run on, but they often force opposing teams into pass mode. Lindsay made the most out of his nine attempts against them in their first matchup this season, rushing for 79 yards.
