Potential top-five draft selection Trent Richardson will not participate in on-field drills at the NFL combine after undergoing a “minor knee scope” three weeks ago.
NFL.com’s Jason LaCanfora reports that Richardson allegedly sustained an injury in a practice leading up to the BCS National Championship game and underwent the operation to alleviate discomfort. While he has reportedly made good progress on the injury, the most recent procedure will limit any eyeball tests hoping to be had by NFL general managers and their respective scouting units.
Richardson will participate in his Pro Day in Alabama on March 7. The Cleveland Browns continue to be in the mix when discussing potential landing spots for the dynamic running back.
