Hey James,
Welcome to Crossfit! Were I in your position, I would get a pair of rings and use this time to focus on gymnastics work. I received my rings just days before injuring my hand but I can tell you that what little time I had on them was HUMBLING. Maybe some of the more advanced gymnasts can chime in here but I believe if you advance in progressions, you'll be doing some fairly intense contractions of your lower body.

I'd also work on Kettlebell swings. Done properly, there is significant work of your posterior chain. Other KB movements will be great for developing upper body strength and accuracy.

Don't sweat too much about what you can't do. Whatever your legs lose during your time off will come back to you much more quickly than it came the first time.
