Broncos RB Royce Freeman Still Sidelined with Ankle Sprain

Broncos rookie running back Royce Freeman remained sidelined at practice on Thursday according to Troy Renck of Denver7.

It appears that Freeman has little chance to suit up for the Broncos’ crucial road game against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday after suffering a high-ankle sprain in last Thursday’s win over the Arizona Cardinals. We would expect Freeman to be officially ruled out when the Broncos release their final injury report on Friday.

Without him on the field, look for undrafted rookie sensation Phillip Lindsay to get the bulk of the work against the Chiefs’ soft run defense with Devontae Booker used as a change-of-pace back. For the season Freeman has thus far rushed for 309 yards and four touchdowns but he sees little work in the passing game.
