Broncos running back Melvin Gordon could be suspended after being cited for driving under the influence Tuesday in Denver.

Gordon, who was also allegedly speeding, will appear in court on Nov. 13.

Gordon's legal trouble may lead to a significant shift in the Broncos' rushing attack this weekend against the Patriots, and perhaps in the weeks thereafter. Phillip Lindsay is expected to return for the New England matchup after injuring his toe in Week 1. Lindsay, a two-time 1,000-yard rusher, would likely receive a significant workload and chance to carve a greater long-term role.

Lindsay's slight build has kept him from being a high-volume back through the first two years of his career. He's rushed more than 20 times in a game just once.

His efficiency, though, makes him a stat producer even if his runs between the tackles are limited. He's averaged almost 1 yard per carry more than Gordon in his career (4.9 to 4).
