Assuming Melvin Gordon is healthy and able to return Sunday — which also requires an assumption the league does not yet institute any punishment for last week’s DUI arrest — the matchup with the Chiefs could provide the first real look at how those two players will work together.
The Broncos have had Lindsay and Gordon in the backfield together for just one half this season. The story quoted HC Vic Fangio as saying: “We’d go back to the plan we had for the opener,” Fangio said. “We’d use them both and manipulate the situations. There’d also be a chance for both of them to be out there at the same time.” Lindsay returned and rushed for over 100 yards last week against the Patriots with Gordon out of the lineup.
Antonio Brown will be eligible to practice and play in only two weeks.
It’s unclear whether and to what extent Brown will generate interest. The fact that he can already be signed but remains available suggests that the wait may continue beyond November 2, the story said. If unsigned two weeks from now, Brown can ink a contract and immediately join a team.
Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski said after Sunday’s 38-7 loss to the Steelers that he pulled quarterback Baker Mayfield because he “just did not want to see him get hit one more time.”
Mayfield came into the game with a questionable tag because of sore ribs that were the result of a hit he took in the team’s Week 5 win over the Colts. He was sacked four times and hit several other times by members of the Pittsburgh defense over the course of the game and Stefanski said Monday that Mayfield is feeling the aftereffects the next day. The good news is the story said he will start in Week 7 and he's not nearly as sore as he was last week.
