Less than a month after trading Mark Ingram to the New Orleans Saints, the Houston Texans now they’ve eliminated another member of their running pool by committee for the entire season.
After not being drafted in 2018, Lindsay signed with the Denver Broncos, where he spent his first three seasons. Lindsay had 192 rushing attempts for 1,037 yards and nine rushing touchdowns in 15 rookie games while adding 35 receptions for 241 yards and one more passing touchdown.
The 27-year-old got a Pro Bowl nod in 2018 and followed up with another 1,000-yard rushing season in 2019. That year, Lindsay had 1,011 rushing yards and seven touchdowns on 224 carries in 16 games, while contributing with 35 receptions for 196 yards as well.
The University of Colorado product was limited to just 11 games in 2020, but it still recorded 502 rushing yards and a touchdown through 118 rushing attempts. Through 10 games with Houston in 2021, Lindsay qualified second on the team in rushing attempts (92), but third in rushing yards with just 130 and only scored a touchdown at 2.6 yards per carry.
