Phillip Lindsay is still headed to the 2019 Pro Bowl.
The Broncos running back made history in December when he became the first undrafted offensive rookie to earn a Pro Bowl selection, but his trip to Orlando appeared it would be canceled after he suffered a wrist injury on Christmas Eve in Oakland.
On Tuesday, though, Lindsay announced he would attend the Pro Bowl in a different capacity.
“I’m just going to be a social media correspondent, so I’ll be going around doing a lot of interviews with fans, with teammates and players,” Lindsay told DenverBroncos.com. “Just having a good time and making it fun for fans to get to see what it’s like to be in the Pro Bowl. It’s going to be — the whole entire time I’m there — about my experience at the Pro Bowl.”
Lindsay said his role will include attending the week’s practices and the Pro Bowl while in Orlando.
“The good thing is, I’ll be wandering around talking all kinds of crap and having fun,” Lindsay said. “I’m not going to be able to play in the game — which I wish I was — but being a correspondent sounds pretty good too, I’m not going to lie.”
