DENVER — At this time last year during training camp, Denver Bronco running back Phillip Lindsay was a long shot to make the Bronco roster. He then ended becoming the starting running back.
This year, the 2nd year back isn't battling for a roster spot. Instead he is battling back from a wrist injury suffered last December.
Even with the consistent obstacles, Lindsay hasn’t lost a beat.
“It was seven months before I really got to touch a football and touch the field,” said Lindsay. “Getting some rust off. There's no better feeling than being out here sore, grinding, sweating, looking to the men to the left and right of you and understanding that you guys are doing this together.”
“He looked good. About like I hoped he would (look like),” Denver Bronco head coach Vic Fangio echoed what the Colorado native stated as well.
And for his sophomore campaign, the former Colorado Buff isn't holding anything back and isn't changing who he is.
“I'm always going to have the chip on my shoulder, that's just who I am,” Lindsay stated. “Mindset wise, I feel like I've got to go at it even more. I hold myself accountable to being more of a leader because I know I've been here one year. I know the ropes a little more”
So a new year with the same mentality, Lindsay hopes that combination leads to one thing: winning.
“For me, it's about winning games,” Lindsay told reporters. “In order for us to win games, we all have to do our job—be a pro.”
