Crabtree reconsidering running 40 for scouts

Michael Crabtree is reconsidering running the 40-yard dash for NFL scouts, the Texas Tech WR told NFL Network during a phone interview.

Crabtree told NFL Network that running the 40 is “a 50-50 deal,” and will re-evaluate whether or not he will work out for scouts at a time earlier than his personal pro day in Dallas on March 26.

It was revealed on Saturday at the NFL Scouting Combine that Crabtree — considered the top receiver by many in this year’s draft class — had a stress fracture in his left foot that will require surgery. Crabtree then indicated that he would run a 40 for scouts, and then have surgery to repair the stress fracture.

Rather than solidify his status as the top wide receiver in this year’s draft class, Crabtree came to the combine and measured in almost two inches shorter than his listed height of 6-foot-3, and then medical examinations revealed the stress fracture.
