ENGLEWOOD — Denver Broncos running back De'Angelo Henderson is recovering from minor shoulder and ankle injuries he sustained over the weekend when his Jeep was hit by a driver fleeing police in a stolen vehicle.

KCNC-TV in Denver reported that a 36-year-old woman was in custody after she allegedly struck several vehicles while evading police Saturday night in Parker, Colorado, sending four people to the hospital, where they were held overnight.

Henderson discussed the crash on his Instagram page Monday and called it "the most traumatic event I've probably ever had to deal with." He thanked the Parker Police Department and South Metro Fire Rescue as well as the doctors who treated him at Parker Adventist hospital.

He said he was "T-boned, airborne, flipped, and rolled" in the accident but was able to get himself out of his damaged Jeep and suffered only "minor injuries with a few scrapes and bruises."

"I'm very grateful and humbled to be alive," Henderson wrote. "... My thoughts and prayers are with the other victims and I hope they are all safe and doing well."

Team spokesman Patrick Smyth said Henderson was back at team headquarters Monday preparing for next week's on-field work in which the offense and defense will square off for the first time this offseason.

Henderson will compete with Devontae Booker and rookie Royce Freeman for carries in the Broncos' backfield this season.

Henderson was the star of training camp last summer but was buried on the depth chart behind C.J. Anderson, Jamaal Charles and Booker last season, when he had just seven carries and two catches, one of which went for a touchdown.
