Earl Thomas‘ hamstring is fine, according to a league source, and will not set him back ahead of this month’s NFL draft.
Thomas, a projected first-round pick out of Texas, pulled up after tweaking his hamstring Wednesday at his pro day, running a 40-yard dash in 4.37 seconds. A decision was made to stop Thomas’ workout at that point, to avoid a setback, but the “hamstring is fine, just a tweak,” according to a source with knowledge of the situation.
Teams have seen Thomas, a rangy safety, move on film and at the combine, so he was held out of backpedaling and position drills, but “he could play this Sunday if needed,” according to the source.
The tweak will not prevent Thomas from making visits or working out for teams ahead of the draft.
