Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay is unlikely to play Thursday night against the New York Jets, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported.
Lindsay has been sidelined since the season opener with turf toe but practiced all week and made the trip to East Rutherford, N.J., for the matchup of 0-3 teams.
"But it may make sense to hold him out another week," Pelissero tweeted Thursday morning. "They'll talk before making a final decision."
The third-year running back had seven carries for 24 yards and one reception for 11 yards in a 16-14 Week 1 loss to the Tennessee Titans. He sat out the second half.
Melvin Gordon has been Denver's leading rusher in Lindsay's absence, carrying 42 times for 174 yards and a touchdown with nine catches for 34 yards and a score through three games.
Lindsay, 26, eclipsed the 1,000-yard plateau in each of his first two seasons and secured a Pro Bowl selection in 2018. He has recorded 423 carries for 2,072 yards and 16 rushing touchdowns while reeling in 71 receptions for 448 yards and a score in 32 career games with the Broncos.
