Russell Okung Injures Groin, Done At The NFL Combine

New, comments

Oklahoma State LT Russell Okung essentially cemented himself as the No. 1 left tackle with a solid performance at the NFL Combine thus far.

First, he came in at a good weight. Then he measured long arms, which will help him tremendously in gaining leverage on defenders. Then he bench pressed 225 pounds 38 times, which is an excellent number and one of the highest at the Combine. Then he ran the 40 yard dash in 5.17 seconds -- anything under 5.3 is acceptable for an offensive lineman.

Then....he got injured.

A Combine official said the groin injury was "minor" but it still kept Okung from participating in the rest of the Combine.

A trainer tended to Okung, who went through a variety of stretching and resistance tests on a training table before he walked off carrying a bag of ice. He didn’t take part in high jump, broad jump, shuttle or three-cone drills after being hurt.

Until the OSU Pro Day, that's all we've seen of Okung. I suspect Chiefs scouts will be well represented that day in Stillwater.
