Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay's season is over after tests showed he suffered major damage to his right wrist in a 27-14 loss at Oakland on Monday night.
Medical tests Tuesday morning revealed ligament damage and a possible scaphoid fracture.
Lindsay won't play in the Broncos' finale against the Chargers on Sunday.
It also appears unlikely he'll be able to play in the Pro Bowl next month after becoming the first undrafted offensive rookie in NFL history to earn a Pro Bowl selection.
He'll be replaced by fellow rookie Royce Freeman and Devontae Booker on Sunday, when they'll need seek to avoid posting double-digit losses in consecutive seasons for the first time since 1966-67.
Although Lindsay said after the game Monday night that he planned to play in the finale, he was unable to use his right hand while getting dressed and needed assistance buttoning his shirt and putting on a necktie.
Lindsay, the former University of Colorado star who used his snubs from the NFL combine and 2018 draft as fuel for a stellar rookie season, finishes his rookie campaign with 1,037 yards and nine touchdowns. He won't get the chance to break the NFL record of 1,104 yards for undrafted rookie running backs that was set by the Colts' Dominic Rhodes in 2001.
Cardinals sign safety
Safety D.J. Swearinger, released by Washington after he criticized the team, was signed Tuesday by the Arizona Cardinals.
Swearinger said Monday, when he was cut by the Redskins, that he received no explanation for the move. A day later, the Cardinals claimed him off waivers and placed offensive lineman Korey Cunningham (foot) on injured reserve.
Washington lost 25-16 at Tennessee on Saturday night. Swearinger was reportedly critical of the lack of aggressive play calling in the loss. He also was critical of the team earlier this season.
Swearinger was selected as a Pro Bowl alternate this season with Washington after making a team-leading four interceptions to go along with 64 tackles (52 solo), two sacks, three forced fumbles, one fumble recovery and 14 passes defensed while starting all 15 games. He rejoins the Cardinals after playing 20 regular-season games for them in 2015-16.
