Lindsay praises Broncos entire rookie class that has made big contributions

Lindsay won the AFC Offensive player of the week but prefers to spread the praise, especially to other Denver rookies

Much has been made of Phillip Lindsay's remarkable season after going undrafted out of Colorado. Lindsay wasn't even invited to the NFL combine last offseason but he has proved a lot of people wrong with the way he has played for Denver in 2018.

More validation came through this week when he was named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week after running for 157 yards and two touchdowns against Cincinnati. But Lindsay, who still lives in his boyhood home, prefers to spread the accolades around.

"I don’t like the attention and I stay away from the attention," he said Wednesday. "That’s just who I am, and that’s what I’m going to continue to be. That’s just how I am. But like I said, I love to hype up and give credit to my teammates because they deserve it.”

He also had praise for his fellow Broncos rookies.

“We’ve been rookies playing this entire time," he said. "It’s not like someone came in and they’re a rookie too. It is an advantage because we’re young and you just go out there and play ball. But we also know that this isn’t just a regular rookie class. This is a unique rookie class that is really mature. You’re not going to get a rookie class like this in the NFL. I don’t care what anybody says.”
