Mike Klis of 9News reports that DUI charges against Broncos RB Melvin Gordon have been dismissed. Gordon has reportedly pleaded guilty to reckless driving for excessive speeding. There's still a chance the NFL disciplines him under the personal-conduct policy. But the dismissal of DUI charges can only help Gordon's shot of avoiding a suspension for the upcoming season. The veteran looks likely to lead the Denver backfield in 2021, though the rest of the group needs to settle out. The Broncos are tendering restricted free agent Phillip Lindsay. Royce Freeman also has 1 year left on his contract.

Broncos RBs Melvin Gordon (shoulder) and Phillip Lindsay (hip) are active for today's game against the Bills. They were limited in practice all week, but we never heard any concern about their availability for this one. Both guys should be ready for their regular roles.

Broncos RB Melvin Gordon (illness) isn’t listed on the final Week 7 injury report. He’ll play against the Chiefs on Sunday. We’re expecting Gordon to lead a committee backfield alongside Phillip Lindsay.

The Broncos won't discipline RB Melvin Gordon for his DUI, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports. Gordon still figures to receive a 2-3 game suspension from the NFL, although the league usually waits until the legal process plays out before handing down the ban. We'll keep an eye on the situation, but Gordon figures to be back out there come Week 7.

Broncos RB Melvin Gordon didn't travel with the team to New England and is out for Sunday's game vs. the Patriots. Per insider Mike Klis, Gordon has strep throat and the team doesn't want it to spread. His absence leaves the backfield to Phillip Lindsay and Royce Freeman. Last year, Lindsay out-carried Freeman 224 to 132, while Freeman edged Lindsay in targets 50 to 48. That was under a different OC, but we're still expecting Lindsay to lead a committee attack on Sunday. Check out the updated projections for Denver's backfield.
