Lindsay had wrist surgery near the end of the season but should be ready for training camp, but will miss the start of OTAs

Summary

Phillip Lindsay was a phenomenon last year during his rookie season. Undrafted out of Colorado, Lindsay went from being a hometown favorite and perhaps a satellite back to the starter and featured running back for the Denver Broncos. He rushed for over 1,000 yards even though he didn't begin the season as the starter and only started eight games for the Broncos and played only 15 games in 2018. The production he had as a rookie made him a high-end RB2 for Fantasy GMs and that's a proper place to project his totals for this year too. A wrist injury, that is likely to take until August to heal from, ended Lindsay's season prematurely last year and his lack of size (190 pounds) will always bring up question about durability. Add in that the Broncos should use Royce Freeman a bit more and you can see how Lindsay's numbers might not decrease in 2019 but might not increase dramatically either. (May 6)

Broncos | Phillip Lindsay on track for camp (Wed Jun 5, 05:58 PM) - Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay (wrist) should be ready for the start of training camp, according to head coach Vic Fangio.

Our View: Lindsay should be ready for the start of camp, but don't be surprised if the Broncos ease him back into action. They're playing in the Hall of Fame Game and have five preseason games this year. There's no need to rush the 2018 Pro Bowl running back. Royce Freeman has looked outstanding in OTAs and mandatory minicamp. We should see Freeman cut into Lindsay's touches a bit this season.
