The 2020 NFL Combine kicked off earlier this week. As teams finally get an up-close look at the top talent entering the league, the players themselves are feeling the heat.
It’s the biggest job interview of their lives – one that last for days instead of an hour at most. Several of the top players at the combine have decided not to work out for teams for various reasons.
Players like Chase Young and Joe Burrow have nothing more to prove and decided to forego workouts. Other players are dealing with injuries, and thus are unable to showcase their talent in front of NFL teams.
Unfortunately, one of those players unable to work out today is former LSU tight end Thaddeus Moss. After putting together a solid 2019 season, the son of former NFL star Randy Moss reportedly suffered a Jones fracture in his foot.
According to a report from Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, Moss will have surgery in the injured foot.
LSU tight end Thaddeus Moss’ physical at the combine revealed a Jones fracture in his right foot and he will have surgery, sources tell me and @RapSheet. The son of hall of fame WR Randy Moss should be healthy in plenty of time for his rookie year.

After undergoing surgery, Moss is expected to recover in 6-8 weeks.
The surgery shouldn’t have any impact on Moss’ draft stock. He’s expected to be a mid-round pick after showing out during the College Football Playoff.
Moss racked up nine receptions for 135 yards and three touchdowns in just two games.
