Broncos running back Melvin Gordon missed Saturday's scrimmage due to his lingering rib injury, and head coach Vic Fangio said "It's a concern but we think he will be back sooner rather than later. We need him." (Tony Renck on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

Gordon had previously been cleared to return from his rib injury, but it's possible the team was just holding him out of Saturday's scrimmage as a precaution. There have already been reports that Gordon and Phillip Lindsay have been working in a fairly even timeshare in training camp, and an injury further clouds Gordon's fantasy value heading into this season.
