Playing for the Rebels, he chased the Denver Public School District record for rushing yards (4,400), which was set by his father in 1979.

After a successful first three years of high school, Lindsay committed to playing for the University of Colorado Boulder.

Shortly after surpassing his father’s rushing record during his senior season, Lindsay suffered a severe ACL tear that brought an end to his high school career.

Despite this injury, Mike MacIntyre, Colorado’s coach, upheld the school’s scholarship offer for the 2013 season.

Apart from football, Lindsay also lettered in basketball as a freshman, and lettered all four years in track and field, where he ran sprints and relays and had personal bests of 10.9 seconds in the 100-meter dash, 22.2 in the 200 and 49.0 in the 400.

Career NFL statistics as of Writing 
Rushing yards: 2,799                 
           Rushing average:             4.5
Receptions: 81
Receiving yards: 510
Total touchdowns: 20

This move comes after Indianapolis ruled NFL’s leading rusher from a season ago, Jonathan Taylor, out with an ankle injury.

Making his first regular-season appearance in a Colts uniform against his former Broncos team in Denver gives Lindsay an opportunity to turn around what has been a fledgling career in recent years.

An undrafted free agent of the Broncos back in 2018, Lindsay made history by becoming the first undrafted offensive rookie to earn a Pro Bowl selection. That season saw the back record 1,278 total yards and 10 touchdowns at a clip of 5.6 yards per touch.

It was an awe-inspiring performance for someone who entered training camp on the roster bubble. Lindsay would then follow that up with another 1,000-yard performance in 2019.
