Denver Broncos running back De'Angelo Henderson escaped serious injury on Saturday when his car flipped over after being involved in an accident with a suspected stolen vehicle fleeing from police.

Broncos executive vice president Patrick Smyth tweeted a statement on Monday to announce Henderson was already back at the team's facility.

"We're thankful that Broncos RB De'Angelo Henderson sustained only minor injuries as one of several accident victims when a car collided with his Jeep Saturday," the statement read. "He was taken to the hospital as a precaution and is at the team's facility preparing to participate in OTAs next week."

According to local media reports, police in suburban Parker were trying to stop a suspected stolen car just after 20:00 local time on Saturday when it fled, crashing into several other cars. 

Henderson, a sixth-round pick by the Broncos out of Coastal Carolina in 2017, had only seven carries for 13 yards as a rookie, but he caught a 29-yard touchdown pass in the season finale against Kansas City. He is listed as third on the team's depth chart, behind Devontae Booker and rookie Royce Freeman.
