Default VERY bored dog while recovering from a leg injury, mind game ideas?

Hey guys!!!
I haven't been here for a while... wow.
Anyway,
Phoenix and I were doing our usual backyard agility, and he was in top form. I had him do one final jump, this one on top of our dirt mound where we keep our garden dirt. He has been doing this same thing since he was very young, but this time he hit it poorly, and plowed into it shoulders first. I thought he broke something at first, but nope, just strained. He has been under strict rest, and golly gee! He is not happy about it. I have had to work all weekend, so I haven't been able to do much, but I was just wondering if you guys had any games you play with your dogs that require no physical activity. I give him kongs full of yummy stuff, when he is in the kennel, but he gets bored with them after a while.
Any thoughts would be appreciated!!!!
Thanks guys!!!!
