Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay was having a rookie season for the ages when he fractured his right wrist in a Christmas Eve game in Oakland. Lindsey will not participate in the team’s voluntary minicamp later this month as he rehabs the injury. He could, however, return for organized team activities, general manager John Elway has said.

Lindsay is wearing a brace instead of a hard cast as he continues to progress. “For me, I put no time limit on my injury right now,” he said Wednesday night, via Kyle Frederickson of The Denver Post. “When I’m ready, I’m going to be ready.”

Lindsay was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Broncos and usurped the role from fellow rookie Royce Freeman. He gained 1,278 combined yards with 10 touchdowns as a rookie and was the first undrafted offensive rookie to ever make the Pro Bowl, however, he missed his opportunity to play in the game because of his injury.

Denver shuffled around their offense this offseason, trading quarterback Case Keenum to the Washington Redskins, and bringing in Joe Flacco from the Baltimore Ravens, who have moved on to Lamar Jackson. Denver also has the tenth pick in this year’s draft.

While it would be easy for Lindsay to get complacent after his stellar rookie season, but he refuses to rest on his laurels. “This season’s over now,” Lindsay said at the Colorado Sports Hall of Fame’s 55th annual hall of fame induction and awards banquet. “I’ve got to prove myself again. People know about me now, so now it’s about going out there and adjusting and proving that I belong here for a second year. You’ve got to put in years, not just one good year.”

Lindsay wasn’t inducted just for his rookie season, the running back. He attended South High School in Denver where he became the school’s all-time leading rusher with 4,587 yards. He also played at the University of Colorado Boulder and set the school record in all-purpose yards (5,760) and yards from scrimmage (4,683).
