The Facts: Lindsay has waited almost six months to get back on the practice field, so he figures he can handle six more weeks. After Wednesday's mandatory minicamp practice, HC Vic Fangio said Lindsay, who was a Pro Bowl selection after he rushed for 1,037 yards in his injury-shortened rookie season, will be ready for full participation when the Broncos report to training camp in mid-July.
Diehards Line: Lindsay's 2018 season ended when he suffered a right wrist injury in the Broncos' Dec. 24 loss to the Oakland Raiders. Lindsay underwent surgery to repair ligament damage and has been held out of the team's workouts since. Lindsay has been on the practice field during OTAs and this week's minicamp, but he has worked with the strength and conditioning staff while the Broncos have gone through team drills. "The surgeon told me [it would take a few months to recover] ... But when you hear it, it's 'OK, OK,' but when you have to go through it and now it's like four months in, you're like, 'Man, now it's going to be six months.' It's a long process, but it's worth it. ... It's your livelihood, you've got to be OK and they want to put me in the best position to make plays. ..." Devontae Booker and Royce Freeman, who was also a rookie last season, have done most of the work with the Broncos' starting offense during this offseason.
