Phillip Lindsay ready for Broncos camp: '100 percent'

Phillip Lindsay believes he's prepared for training camp later this week.

"In my mind I'm ready. I'm 100 percent," Lindsay said Monday at his football camp, via Mike Klis of 9News Denver.

The running back's Pro Bowl rookie season ended with a right wrist injury on Christmas Eve that required surgery, abruptly ending his campaign one tilt short. He's been rehabbing through the offseason and hand taken part in team drills at all during workouts.

Lindsay noted that it will ultimately be the coaches' decision how much work he gets early in camp, which opens Wednesday, July 17.

The new coaching staff will likely bring along the running back slowly to start camp and play him sparingly during preseason campaigns.

Even if the Broncos staff curtails his workload in camp, Lindsay's confidence redoubles our expectation that he'll be full-go once the regular season starts. How much the Broncos' new coaching staff, led by offensive coordinator Rich Scangarello, rides the bulldog running back early in the season will be something to track. Royce Freeman could push for a larger role in Year 2, making the Denver backfield a true committee this season.
