Tyler Kroft, TE, Rutgers:
As posted earlier on twitter, Rutgers tight end Tyler Kroft had his ankle injured during Combine medicals. Yesterday, I reported Kroft was expected to run the 40 in the 4.6s despite suffering the remnants of an ankle injury suffered during the season. I'm told doctors during the medicals pulled and twisted Kroft's ankle to test the integrity of the joint, and they stretched it a bit to much. Players getting injured during combine medicals is nothing new. I remember hearing a similar story years ago on Penn State linebacker Dan Connor, who had to pull out of the Combine workout after straining his knee when doctors pulled and twisted his leg to test the joint. Combine workouts can be a hazard as doctors will tug and pulls leg and other joints, especially if medical history shows a prior injury. The end result could be a Combine participant who leaves the medical room worse for the where.
