Broncos RB De’Angelo Henderson escapes serious injury after scary crash

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

In an Instagram post, Henderson called it the “most traumatic event I’ve probably ever had to deal with.”

“T-boned, airborne, flipped, and rolled,” Henderson said. “I plowed Cheap Original Soccer Jerseys through my jammed door and exit my Jeep on my own. I’m truly blessed that God protected me through this accident. Without Cheap Real Jerseys his favor I don’t know if I would’ve survived.”

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’s listed as third on the team’s depth chart, behind Devontae Booker and rookie Royce Freeman.

The driver of the fleeing car, a 36-year-old woman, faces charges including vehicular assault, eluding, motor vehicle theft, DUI-Drugs, and several traffic offenses.

Pennington met Mayfield at the Senior Bowl, and later spent time with him at the NFL Scouting Combine. The two have exchanged texts since then. Pennington told the Beacon Journal and Ohio.com that he’s advised the Browns’ high-profile rookie QB to focus on his play and being a good teammate, and not worry about the hoopla of being the No. 1 pick.

“My first piece of advice came from a place of transparency and honesty in saying that, ‘Baker, you have to remember who you are, and that is a guy who was a twice walk-on in college, and without your work ethic and your talent, you would probably be a [graduate assistant] somewhere coaching,’” Pennington told the Beacon Journal/Ohio.com.

Mayfield will face distractions in Cleveland. He’s not only being hailed as the savior of the long-suffering franchise, his play will be measured against the other four quarterbacks selected in the first round in an unusually deep class. There will be endorsement opportunities and more. But Pennington says he told Mayfield that, “once you believe you’re an entertainer, not a football player, your time is going to be limited in this league.”
