ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Denver Broncos rookie rushing sensation Phillip Lindsay is going to the Pro Bowl on the NFL's dime even though he won't play in the all-star game because he's recovering from an operation on his right wrist.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Phillip Lindsay provided the NFL with its best feel-good story of the season and the Denver Broncos with a rough-and-tumble identity before an injury epidemic spoiled their playoff plans.
The undersized, overlooked running back from the University of Colorado made history and forced all 32 of the league's teams to question why they didn't draft him.
Phillip Lindsay didn't receive an invitation to the NFL scouting combine and his name wasn't called during the draft.
Motivated by the snub, he made history.
The talented Denver Broncos running back became the first undrafted offensive player selected for the Pro Bowl as a rookie. He heads the list of undrafted rookies who've made an impact this season.
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay's sensational rookie season is over after tests showed he sustained major damage to his right wrist in Denver's loss at Oakland, a person with knowledge of the MRI results told The Associated Press.
The person, speaking on condition of anonymity because the team was off on Christmas Day, confirmed a report by 9News in Denver that medical tests Tuesday morning revealed ligament damage and a possible scaphoid fracture.
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Broncos pass rusher Von Miller quickly sacked any notion that there's nothing left to play for in a season that's gone awry.
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — No, Phillip Lindsay never once thought he'd become the first undrafted offensive player to make the Pro Bowl. He's been too busy making tacklers miss and general managers regret passing him over in the NFL draft just because he stands 5-foot-8.
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Snubbed from the combine and in the 2018 draft, Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay is the first undrafted offensive player in NFL history to make the Pro Bowl as a rookie.
NEW YORK (AP) — The Los Angeles Chargers placed seven players in the Pro Bowl, including safety Derwin James, one of six rookies across the league to make the game.
CINCINNATI (AP) — Nobody's overlooking 5-foot-8 Phillip Lindsay anymore, not with the way he's run the Broncos right back into playoff contention.
The rookie rushed for a career-high 157 yards and a pair of touchdowns Sunday as Denver adapted to a windy afternoon and got its third straight victory, 24-10 over the Cincinnati Bengals.
CINCINNATI (AP) — A.J. Green took a couple of steps, tried to cut and crumbled to the ground, grabbing his right foot. He was carted off the field, along with the Bengals' hopes of a late-season recovery.
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Jeff Holland takes his inspiration from Von Miller on the practice field and Phillip Lindsay in the locker room.
The former Auburn star met Miller while preparing for the NFL draft.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Omitted from the combine invitation list and ignored in the NFL draft, Denver Broncos rookie running back Phillip Lindsay has gone from head-scratcher to head-turner.
"I remember the first couple of times I watched him five, six weeks ago on video, I had to get a flip card to figure out who he was," Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said.
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Vance Joseph's decision to tuck his red challenge flag back into his pants pocket loomed large until the Denver Broncos pulled off a last-second win over the Los Angeles Chargers.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Denver Broncos wrapped up an awful week off the field with a miserable performance on it.
First came the rumors that a handful of players would be on the trading block, then came the controversial Halloween party thrown by Von Miller, after which backup quarterback Chad Kelley was arrested on suspicion of criminal trespassing and summarily cut from the roster.
DENVER (AP) — The Denver Broncos reeled off big run after big run against the soft underbelly of the Kansas City Chiefs defense.
Phillip Lindsay and Royce Freeman ran roughshod over the Chiefs. Each scored a touchdown and Freeman eluded seven defenders and dragged a linebacker into the end zone on his 14-yard score.
BALTIMORE (AP) — The Denver Broncos had a lot of things stacked against them in their quest to open the season 3-0.
They were coming across the country to play a tough Baltimore Ravens team bent on making amends for a blowout loss in Cincinnati last week. To make the task even more challenging, the Broncos were short-handed in the defensive backfield, even before losing cornerback Tremaine Brock to a groin injury in the first quarter on Sunday.
BALTIMORE (AP) — Unbeaten after two games for the sixth consecutive year, Denver showed its tenacity in a pair of fourth-quarter comebacks at home.
Now it's time to see if the Broncos can win on the road.
Quarterback Case Keenum, record-setting rookie running back Phillip Lindsay, standout receiver Emmanuel Sanders and the NFL's second-ranked offense will be tested Sunday by the Baltimore Ravens, who are 60-21 on their own turf since coach John Harbaugh arrived in 2008.
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Phillip Lindsay is taking the NFL by storm. He's also taking it all in stride.
"I am just playing football, that's it," the Denver Broncos running back said after becoming the first undrafted player in NFL history to eclipse 100 yards from scrimmage in each of his first two NFL games.
"I am just playing football for our team. I don't think of things like that."
Keeping his head down has always been Lindsay's style.
After the first full week of fantasy football results, there are interesting potential adds on the waiver wire, but it seems unlikely there are any major difference-makers yet that aren't widely owned in leagues. Yet there are certainly some distinctive and helpful targets who can help plug some potential holes.
DENVER (AP) — Revamping the offensive line has become an annual rite of spring in Denver.
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Royce Freeman is set to become the first rookie running back to start a season opener for the Denver Broncos since Hall of Famer Terrell Davis in 1995.
"It's an honor to be mentioned with a man of that caliber, a player with that type of legacy around here," Freeman said.
Coach Vance Joseph chose the third-round pick from Oregon as his starter Monday ahead of veteran Devontae Booker and fellow rookie Phillip Lindsay, who coincidentally was handed Davis' old No. 30 jersey.
