Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay has surgery on his wrist

Phillip Lindsay, Broncos

Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay underwent surgery on his right wrist for the second straight offseason, according to Mike Klis of 9News. 

Lindsay’s surgery should not keep him out of offseason practices. According to Klis, he underwent “a simple, clean-up arthroscopic procedure.” The Broncos will begin offseason practices on April 20.

Lindsay’s right wrist injury is nothing new. He initially suffered the ailment in Week 15 of the 2018 season. He was unable to go to the Pro Bowl and did not start offseason training until training camp.

Towards the end of the 2019 season, Lindsay noted that he was dealing with some pain from the injury. He planned on using the offseason to heal up, among other things.

“I’m going to go and get healed up,” Lindsay said on Dec. 30 with Broncos media. “Then I’m going to start my plan for next year with my dieting and everything and go from there. I’ll probably take some little trips here and there with my girl—probably thinking about going somewhere like New York. Then we get back here, and we get back to work.”

An undrafted Colorado product in 2018, Lindsay burst onto the scene as a rookie, tallying 1,037 yards and nine touchdowns on the ground in 15 games. As the feature back in the Broncos’ attack in 2019, he recorded 1,011 yards and seven touchdowns.

Lindsay can get an extension in the offseason. All signs from the Broncos’ front office indicate that could happen, as general manager John Elway is keen on bringing back his star back to flank promising rookie quarterback Drew Lock.
