INDIANAPOLIS – Texas quarterback Colt McCoy underwent an MRI exam Friday afternoon that showed no further damage to the nerve injury in his right shoulder.
McCoy, who didn’t have surgery after initially injuring the shoulder in the national championship game, underwent the tests at the request of teams as part of the medical exams at the NFL Scouting Combine. McCoy knew entering the combine there would be questions about the shoulder, but was confident what he results would be.
“Obviously, that was going to be a tough part of the weekend, because people are going to want to know how the shoulder is and how it’s healing up,” McCoy said.
“The good thing is my shoulder is 100 percent fine. There’s nothing wrong with it. We found nothing wrong with it. It’s just a nerve injury, and it’s just about 100 percent. It’s just about ready to go.”
McCoy has been rehabbing since the injury and working with noted surgeon James Andrews of Birmingham, Ala., and is currently on what he calls a “strict” throwing schedule. He said he’s been working with Andrews every day, and is throwing short and medium routes to retain his accuracy and arm strength. Full story …
