Broncos RB Royce Freeman (ankle) isn’t listed on the final injury report. He practiced all week, including full workouts on Thursday and Friday. Freeman has averaged 10.1 carries per game so far and might see less work than that against the Chargers this weekend with RB Phillip Lindsay playing well.

Broncos RB Royce Freeman (ankle) is inactive for today’s game against the Texans. That again leaves the backfield to Phillip Lindsay and Devontae Booker. With Freeman out last week, Lindsay carried 18 times and caught all 3 of his targets while Booker handled 9 carries and 4 targets.

Broncos RB Royce Freeman (ankle) is not expected to play against Houston today, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Freeman is officially questionable, and HC Vance Joseph told the team website Friday that he's "getting better fast." But the team will reportedly let him rest the ankle through the Week 10 bye. Freeman's absence helps the touch outlooks for Phillip Lindsay and Devontae Booker, each of whom posted nice fantasy numbers (in a much better matchup) last week against the Chiefs.

Broncos RB Royce Freeman (ankle) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Texans. He put in a limited practice on Friday after sitting out the first 2 workouts of the week. We’d bet against Freeman playing on Sunday. But if he does, it’d be a knock to RB Phillip Lindsay’s fantasy value.

Broncos RB Royce Freeman (ankle) was listed as "did not practice" again on Thursday. Reporters saw him on the field for the start of the workout, but he didn't participate in team drills. Freeman continues to look unlikely to play against the Texans this weekend.

Injury Predictor

Freeman spent 4 years as Oregon's workhorse, racking up 947 carries and 79 receptions. He cracked 240 carries 3 times while losing just 1 game to injury (a 2016 lower right-leg issue). Freeman will likely have to share a bit more of the work in Denver but could also find a path to clear lead duties quickly with the Broncos. Devontae Booker has struggled when given starter-level work, and 2nd-year RB De'Angelo Henderson enters 2018 unproven.
