Despite having upcoming surgery on a stress fracture in his left foot that could take up to 10 weeks of recovery, Texas Tech WR Michael Crabtree says he’ll run the 40-yard dash for scouts before anyone touches his foot. The wide out spoke to reporters for only 20 seconds, saying that he’ll do the run at his private workout next month before he has the surgery.
“It’s an old injury that I’ve been having, but I never had any pain in it,” he said. “I will run my 40, and after that I will have surgery.”
It came to light Saturday about the fracture for Crabtree, but the dynamic pass catcher wants to put to rest that it’ll be any issue when the April 25th draft rolls around. Speculation is that Crabtree is going to be a top five pick, and he doesn’t want anyone thinking any differently.
