Denver Broncos running back De’Angelo Henderson should not miss any on-field action, suffering only minor injuries after being struck by a vehicle evading police in Parker on Saturday.

The second-year pro posted a picture of his flipped Jeep to his Instagram profile on Monday, saying he’d suffered only a “few scrapes and bruises” after his vehicle was t-boned, went airborne, flipped, and rolled.

“With OTAs a week a way (sic) and a season that I’m competing for a significant roll (sic), the most traumatic event I’ve probably ever had to deal with occurs,” Henderson said in the post.

 

With OTAs a week a way and a season that I’m competing for a significant roll, the most traumatic event I’ve probably ever had to deal with occurs. T-boned, airborne, flipped, and rolled. I plowed through my jammed door and exit my Jeep on my own. I’m truly blessed that God protected me through this accident. Without his favor I don’t know if I would’ve survived. I’m thankful to only came out with minor injuries and a few scrapes and bruises. Thank you to the Parker Police and South Metro Fire Rescue in Parker for getting to me asap, attending all my needs and transporting me to the hospital safely. Thank you to the doctors at Parker Adventist for treating me as a first class patient also. I’m very grateful and humbled to be alive. My family and I thanks everyone who has prayed for me over the last few days. My thoughts and prayers are with the other victims and I hope they all are safe and doing well. In the mean time I’m rehabbing and getting my body ready to participate in OTAs next week. Thanks everyone again!!! Jeremiah 29:11🙏🏾
