Known for his spirited energy
ENGLEWOOD Will Harris Jersey , Colo. (AP) —Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay pledges to show increased patience this season.Already, that’s being put to the test.Lindsay participated in individual drills Wednesday at minicamp as his surgically repaired right wrist heals. He also sat out the team drills, which made him antsy.“I’m itching to be out there,” said Lindsay, whose wild hair and relentless rushing style earned him the nickname “Tasmanian Devil” at the University of Colorado. “That’s why they have to hold the reins on me so tight.”With a new coach in Vic Fangio and digesting a different system, the second-year undrafted tailback is eager to display what he can do.Last season, Lindsay rushed for 1,037 yards and nine touchdowns. Only a wrist injury at Oakland on Christmas Eve deprived him of a shot at breaking Dominic Rhodes’ 2001 record of 1,104 yards for undrafted rookie running backs. Still, Lindsay earned a Pro Bowl selection even if he couldn’t play.On his list of areas to improve in 2019 — patience. More specifically, waiting for things to develop, especially given the different blocking schemes.But he could hardly stay still on the sideline with Royce Freeman and Devontae Booker splitting the reps.Lindsay wanted to be taking handoffs.“But you can’t go out there half-healthy. You’re going against these grown men and it’s your livelihood http://www.detroitlionsteamonline.com/au...ant-jersey ,” said Lindsay, who attended the Pro Bowl as a social media correspondent. “They want to put me in the best situation to be able to make plays. I want to be able to go the whole entire year, not half a year.”Lindsay believes he will fit in well in this new offense. He can’t wait to start developing a bond with quarterback Joe Flacco.“Flacco’s seen me, heard about me, but now he has to trust me,” Lindsay said. “I have to go back and earn his trust.”At times, Lindsay ditched his wrist brace for some of the drills. He’s balancing being smart about his wrist with the desire to participate in more activities.“You don’t want to go out there and mess up by tripping or falling, something that’s not supposed to happen,” Lindsay said. “When it’s time, it’s going to be time. I’m going to go out there and showcase.”Fangio said he expects Lindsay to be full-go for training camp. As for his preference about whether he’d rather have a featured back or use the hot-hand approach, Fangio will take a wait-and-see approach. He likes what he sees from Lindsay even if it’s been in a limited capacity.“He’s a very intense competitor, wants to do well and has his priorities in order,” Fangio said.Next month Max Scharping Jersey , Lindsay will host a football camp for kids in the Denver area. He will be out there with them and fully engaged.“That’s what I do,” said Lindsay, who grew up in Denver. “I’m not going to just sit there.”After all, it’s difficult enough to sit out some of the minicamp action.“Any injury is frustrating. I’m anxious to be out there with my teammates,” Lindsay said. “I see Booker and Royce putting in a lot of work and I want to be out there with them. I like the grind. I like being tired. I like sweat, blood, the tears. That’s what I’m here for. I can’t wait to get back to that.”NOTES: Former Broncos QB Peyton Manning and his father, Archie, stopped by minicamp Wednesday. Fangio maintained that Archie was the best quarterback in the Manning family. “I always said if he was with the Pittsburgh Steelers back when he played, instead of (Terry) Bradshaw — if him and Bradshaw switched spots, Archie would’ve had all those Super Bowl rings and Bradshaw would’ve had to go through the agony of playing with the Saints in the ’70s.” … Fangio estimated that 90% of the concepts have been installed. … K Taylor Bertolet took quite a few of the field-goal attempts Wednesday over Brandon McManus. “Brandon is obviously the incumbent,” Fangio said. “He (Bertolet) would have to knock him out like in a heavyweight battle.” SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Former NFL offensive lineman Richie Incognito bonded out of an Arizona jail Tuesday after being arrested on charges he threatened to shoot employees of a funeral home a day earlier Brian Burns Jersey , authorities said.Police in the Phoenix suburb of Scottsdale said Incognito had been booked on suspicion of misdemeanor charges of threats and disorderly conduct.Incognito, 35, posted a $20,000 bond. He has an Aug. 27 pretrial conference in Scottsdale Municipal Court. It was unclear Tuesday if Incognito had a lawyer who could speak on his behalf.Police said Incognito was at the Messinger Pinnacle Peak Mortuary on Monday to make arrangements for his father, who died last weekend.“Incognito reportedly was upset with staff and began to damage property inside the business and shout at employees,” said Sgt. Ben Hoster, a police spokesman. “At several points during his contact with staff, Incognito threatened to retrieve guns from his vehicle and return to shoot the employees.”A police report showed officers later executed a search warrant on Incognito’s pickup truck and seized two Glocks, three rifles and a silencer for a handgun.The report also said Incognito’s family had told him he wasn’t going to be allowed to attend his father’s funeral and he had been acting erratically.Witnesses at the funeral home told police that Incognito wanted them to cut his dead dad’s head off for research purposes and Incognito punched caskets, threw pamphlets around and took an urn from a shelf and slammed it down on top of a casket.Two mortuary employees took cover in a room downstairs before police arrived and arrested Incognito.Incognito attended a Phoenix-area high school before playing college football at Nebraska and having an 11-year NFL career with St. Louis, Miami and Buffalo.He was released by the Bills three months ago from the reserve/retired list, making him an unrestricted free agent.Incognito was suspended by the Dolphins in 2013 for bullying a teammate and arrested last May in Florida for allegedly throwing a dumbbell and tennis ball at another gym patron.
