Lindsay (wrist) is present Tuesday for voluntary minicamp, but he isn't participating in drills, Jeff Legwold of ESPN.com reports.
Working his way back from a season-ending wrist fracture, Lindsay was limited to stretching and chatting with teammates during Tuesday's session. His availability for training camp doesn't seem to be much of a concern, but he'll likely remain limited throughout the offseason program, with his focus on learning a new playbook from offensive coordinator Rich Scangarello. The Broncos presumably envision a backfield with both Lindsay and fellow second-year pro Royce Freeman handling sizable roles.
Lindsay (wrist) sported a brace instead of a hard cast at Wednesday's workout, Kyle Fredrickson of the Denver Post reports.
Lindsay is recovering from a fractured right wrist that is preventing the running back from fully participating in the outset of the Broncos' offseason training program that started this week. Given that he's nursing an arm injury -- as opposed to a lower-body issue -- it's not a huge surprise that Denver has allowed him to take part in select drills this spring, but the running back remains without a firm timetable to return to the field in a full capacity. General manager John Elway recently suggested Lindsay could be back in the fold as soon as May.
Coach Vic Fangio said Lindsay (wrist) is unlikely to participate in the beginning of OTAs, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports.
The Broncos have a bonus minicamp the week after the 2019 NFL Draft, and Lindsay will likely be watching from the sidelines. It's unclear if Lindsay will be able to participate in any part of the offseason program, but there doesn't seem to be concern about his availability for training camp. This injury shouldn't affect his fantasy stock anyway considering his condition is a wrist issue instead of a lower-body problem.
Lindsay (wrist) is still sporting a hard cast on his right arm and declined to comment Wednesday regarding his potential availability for OTAs, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic reports.
The rehab timeline was estimated at 3-to-4 months when the undrafted rookie sensation landed on injured reserve and had surgery after Week 16. His continued use of a hard cast doesn't mean he's behind schedule, but it suggests his weightlifting will be limited during the offseason. In any case, Lindsay should regain his health long before training camp, and perhaps even for OTAs or minicamp this spring. A wrist injury is far less concerning than any type of lower-body issue would be.
Lindsay (wrist) finished his rookie campaign with 1,037 yards and nine touchdowns on 192 carries and another 241 yards and a touchdown on 35 catches over 15 appearances.
In a season with few bright spots for the Broncos, the rookie out of Colorado easily stole the show until a serious wrist injury that required surgery ended his season one game early. The first offensive undrafted rookie ever to be selected for a Pro Bowl, Lindsay finishedthird in the league in yards per carry (5.4) despite his average dropping considerably following Week 13. He should be the cornerstone of the Denver offense in 2019, with improvements in the passing game and the shakeup of the coaching staff potentially adding to his already considerable value.
