The Denver Broncos go to 2-2 in the season after losing to the Las Vegas Raiders, 32-23. Once again, the Broncos beat themselves with many self-inflicted mistakes that cost them the game.

To make matters worse, the Broncos lost Javonte Williams due to injury early in the second half. As reported by Ian Rapoport, the Broncos believe that Williams has suffered a “suffered a serious knee injury.”

There is not a lot of optimism surrounding the injury. It looks like Williams will be sidelined for an extended amount of time or even the entire season. Nonetheless, this was horrible for Williams and all of Broncos Country wish him a speedy recovery.

The running back room is now down to Melvin Gordon and Mike Boone for the Broncos and Nathaniel Hackett. The cruel reality of the situation is that Boone cannot simply be the starting running back for this team nor can Gordon, especially with his recent struggles on the field.

Interestingly enough, a former Bronco’ appears to be intrigued in a reunion with the Denver Broncos and fans may love it.

Phillip Lindsay appears to be interested to play for Denver after liking several Denver Broncos tweets on Twitter

Phillip Lindsay was active on Twitter Sunday afternoon during the Broncos game. With the injury to Williams, it’s obvious that George Paton needs to add another running back to the group.

Gordon can’t be trusted with the ball in his hands as he has already fumbled four times this season. The Broncos need a reliable running back that doesn’t turnover the ball and who better to call than Lindsay?

Here are the tweets that Lindsay liked on Twitter during the Broncos game:

In his career, Lindsay has carried the ball 622 times and has fumbled ZERO times. Lindsay is as reliable as anyone in the league when carrying the football and he also runs the ball pretty damn hard.

There can be an argument made that Lindsay can fit with this offensive scheme with Hackett but the truth is, he’ll be great in this offense no matter what because he will not give the ball away and that is the main concern right now for this offense and the running backs.

In his three years in Denver, Lindsay totaled 2,550 rushing yards and 17 touchdowns. Lindsay had 3,015 total scrimmage yards here at Mile High and the Broncos can use his help immensely right now.

Phillip Lindsay is currently on the Indianapolis Colts practice squad so the Denver Broncos do not have to give anything away to get him. This should be an easy call for Paton as it makes too much sense for Lindsay to come back home and play for the Broncos. We all know Broncos Country will love to have him back.

While it seems like Phillip Lindsay is interested in a return to the Denver Broncos, George Paton needs to step in and bring the Colorado native back home. Lindsay will make a tremendous impact on day one and the offense will be better with him playing.
