Lindsay now has eclipsed 730 rushing yards in his first season as a pro and has a good chance to cross the 1,000 ceiling before the season ends.

The Broncos undrafted running backs who Lindsay is now ahead of on the list are:

- Selvin Young (729 yards in 2007)
- Mike Bell (677 yards in 2006)

Lindsay finished Sunday's game with 110 rushing yards on 14 carries and he now has 780 yards on the season.
