Phillip Lindsay (toe) out 2-4 weeks

Phillip Lindsay is dealing with a toe sprain and expected to miss 2-4 weeks, including Sunday’s Week 2 matchup against the Steelers.

Fantasy Impact

Lindsay was expected to miss this week but the 2-4 week timetable is disappointing news. Expect to see a large dose of recently-acquired Melvin Gordon the next few weeks as Lindsey’s absence will make him a rock-solid RB2, although his matchup against the Steelers will be difficult.

Phillip Lindsay (toe) unlikely to play Sunday

Broncos head coach Vic Fangio told reporters that RB Phillip Lindsay is unlikely to play Sunday vs. the Steelers.

Fantasy Impact

Melvin Gordon III will handle the majority of the carries while Royce Freeman figures to see a few extra snaps in a complementary role in Week 2 in Lindsay’s absence.

Phillip Lindsay (toe) will not practice Thursday

Phillip Lindsay will not participate in practice on Thursday according to head coach Vic Fangio. Lindsay is battling a turf toe injury that he suffered in Week 1.

Fantasy Impact

Lindsay has been trending towards not playing in Week 2 throughout the week. He already reached out to other doctors for a second medical opinion on his toe, so it is not looking good. If he does not upgrade his practice participation in some capacity by Friday, I would expect Lindsay to miss Week 2.

Phillip Lindsay (toe) receiving second opinion

Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay is seeking a second opinion on his injured toe.

Fantasy Impact

Lindsay is battling turf toe and it's more than likely he misses time, but it's not considered long term. Melvin Gordon saw 15 carries for 78 yards and a TD and added another three catches for 8 yards Monday night against the Titans, but faces a tough Steelers D/ST that just held Saquon Barkley to 75 total yards. Gordon is still flex-worthy this week, but start him with caution.

Phillip Lindsay (toe) in doubt for Sunday’s game

Phillip Lindsay suffered a turf toe injury in Monday’s game against the Titans. Although it doesn’t appear to be serious, his status for Week 2 is currently in doubt.

Fantasy Impact

Turf toe has a wide range for healing time so this injury is a bit concerning. Monitoring his status through this week’s practices should give us a clearer picture on the severity. Obviously, Melvin Gordon moves into high-end RB2 territory with great upside for this Sunday’s game against the Steelers if Lindsay is unable to suit up.
