Former Colorado Buffaloes running back Phillip Lindsay isn’t going to let a cast on his wrist stop him from having the time of his life this week at the NFL Pro Bowl in Orlando, FL.
Following a rookie season that saw him rush for 1,037 yards and 10 total touchdowns, the Denver Broncos star made history by becoming the first undrafted offensive rookie in NFL history to make the Pro Bowl. Unfortunately, a wrist injury suffered in week 16 against the Oakland Raiders will keep Lindsay from participating in Sunday’s Pro Bowl, but it hasn’t prevented him from taking part in the festivities.
Lindsay has been serving as a social media correspondent for the NFL this week and from the looks of it, he’s enjoying all the spoils that come with being selected to the Pro Bowl.
Since arriving in Orlando on Tuesday, Lindsay has been capturing his Pro Bowl week experience via the NFL’s Instagram story.
In addition, here’s a collection of tweets and Instagram posts that show just how much fun the Broncos rookie is having:

Lindsay was also named the 2018 Vizio Top Value Performer on Wednesday.
Thank you to @VIZIO, #BroncosCountry & all of the fans who helped me take home the 2018 Vizio TVP award. It’s an honor to be named the winner & I appreciate your support throughout my rookie year. It’s been an amazing ride and I thank you all for being a part of it with me!— Phillip Lindsay (@I_CU_boy) January 23, 2019
Voted on by fans, the annual award, now in its 12th year, recognizes the professional football player who’s on-field performance most exceeds the value of his base salary. According to Spotrac.com, Lindsay’s base salary for this past season was $473,112.
“All smiles over here !!”
It’s no wonder Phillip Lindsay was all smiles. This was certainly a week the Broncos rookie will never forget.
