Broncos' Mike Boone climbing up depth chart ahead of Week 5

Denver Broncos running back Mike Boone could see a significant increase in his workload as early as the team's Week 5 game against the Indianapolis Colts.

What It Means:

Boone began mixing into the Broncos' offense over the past two weeks, but saw his opportunities spike in Week 4; teammate Melvin Gordon committed his fourth fumble of the season and was seemingly benched for the remainder of the contest, and 2021 third-round pick Javonte Williams suffered a season-ending injury towards the end of the game. Boone and Gordon will vie for the team's top running back spot ahead of Thursday's game against the Colts.

Boone broke off a chunk gain on 1 of his 3 rushes in Week 4, totaling 20 rushing yards on the day. He also drew 3 targets, but caught just 1 for 9 yards. Unless we hear otherwise from the Broncos during the week, he should be expected to split the bulk of the running back opportunities with Gordon in Week 5.
