Injury Report: Phillip Lindsay ruled out for Broncos' Week 2 game in Pittsburgh


ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Broncos will be without Pro Bowl running back Phillip Lindsay for their Week 2 game against the Steelers.

Lindsay was ruled out with a toe injury on Friday for Sunday's game. Linebacker Mark Barron (hamstring) was also ruled out.

Lindsay exited during the Broncos' Week 1 loss to the Titans and did not practice this week.

The third-year player has missed just one other game in his career, as he was held out of the 2017 season finale with a wrist injury.

Without Lindsay, the Broncos will rely on Melvin Gordon III and Royce Freeman and could elevate LeVante Bellamy from the practice squad on game day.

Wide receiver Courtland Sutton is questionable for Sunday with a shoulder injury, and Head Coach Vic Fangio said the team will see how he feel ahead of the game.

"Courtland's doing better," Fangio said. "He did better today than he did yesterday. I think it will still be a game-time decision. He's truly 50-50."

Tackle Garett Bolles is also questionable with an elbow injury, but Fangio said he thought Bolles would be fine for Sunday.

"I think we're listing him as questionable," Fangio said, "but I think he's a better questionable than Courtland right now."

Tyrie Cleveland is the only other player who is questionable, as he deals with a hip injury.
