INDIANAPOLIS Ohio State receiver Ted Ginn Jr. arrived at the annual NFL scouting combine yesterday but does not intend to participate in any of the drills.
That s not unusual for first-round prospects, who usually wait until workouts on their campuses to perform.
Ginn, though, has an excuse. He sprained his left foot during the national championship game after opening the game with a kickoff return for a touchdown. In the ensuing celebration, Ginn said he was pulled down by a teammate inadvertently and injured the foot.
Doctors, Ginn said, told him the foot would heal with rest and he s only resumed jogging this week.
Ginn is one of the roughly 330 combine invitees.
What NFL scouts want to know is when will Ginn run?
Well, I guess it will have to be before the draft, he said. We ll see how I feel for the pro day.
OSU workouts are scheduled for March 10.
