Phillip Lindsay has accounted for at least one of Denver’s top-10 yardage plays in each of its three preseason games—a 19-yard touchdown reception and 16-yard catch against Chicago, a 15-yard run against Minnesota and that deep tear-drop at Washington. He totaled 65 plays in those games (41 on offense and 24 on special teams).
Lindsay featured prominently with the first-team against the Redskins, appeared in 14 plays at running back—a clear sign as the 53-man roster cut looms Friday that he will indeed be a Bronco.
HC Vance Joseph said Lindsay is earning the right to be on the team. We have him down low on our depth chart at the moment, but if he makes the team he'll obviously jump up. Freeman and Booker seem to be a lock to earn a majority of the work, but Lindsay is a name to keep in mind.
