Lindsay rushed for 95 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries while adding 17 yards on three receptions during Sunday’s 30-23 loss in Kansas City.
Lindsay put the Broncos up early, plowing ahead for a 1-yard touchdown run in the first quarter. Sunday marked career highs in touches and total yardage for the rookie as Denver provided him with more than 15 touches for the first time since Week 1.
Part of Sunday’s usage can be explained by the absence of Royce Freeman (ankle), but — as he is carrying the ball at 5.7 yards per clip — Lindsay probably deserves more work normally. His impressive rookie season will come up against a wall next Sunday as Denver hosts a Texans defense surrendering just 3.6 yards per carry.
