According to Jeff Legwold of ESPN, Denver Broncos head coach Nathaniel Hackett attributed RB Melvin Gordon's Wednesday absence from practice to a foot injury. Gordon will receive further evaluations on it. (Jeff Legwold on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

Gordon sneakily finished last season as the RB17 in standard formats, one spot ahead of rookie teammate RB Javonte Williams. Williams was listed ahead of Gordon on the team's first unofficial depth chart, but the team's offensive coordinator Justin Outten said the two backs would receive "pitch counts" this year. Gordon will receive further evaluation, but if he misses any time, Williams receives a significant boost in all formats.
