Texas running back D'Onta Foreman will sit out out the rest of the Combine after a stress fracture was discovered in his foot.
According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, former Texas running back D'Onta Foreman will not participate in the rest of the NFL Combine after doctors found a slight stress fracture in his foot. He will instead wait for Texas' pro day on March 28 to show his stuff.
Foreman's dad, Derrick, took to Twitter earlier today to clear up rumors from critics that Foreman wanted to sit out the Combine, for whatever reason.
On Thursday, the 6-foot-1, 233-pound back managed to do 18 reps on bench press, good enough for thirteenth among this year's RB class. Unfortunately, he will miss the 40-yard dash and several other agility drills because of the newly-discovered injury.
At any rate, it's important to remember that even though Foreman won the Doak Walker award as the nation's top back, he's not considered one of the top prospects in the draft, and he still has a lot to prove to scouts. This injury somewhat puts a hold on things, and it makes Foreman's pro day all the more important if he wants to impress teams.
The junior recorded an incredible 2,028 rushing yards on 323 carries his junior year, leading the FBS with 184.4 rushing yards per game in 2016.
