Dowling down with hamstring injury

INDIANAPOLIS — It appears that Virginia CB Ras-I Dowling‘s day at the NFL Scouting Combine has been cut short.

Dowling didn’t run his second 40-yard dash Tuesday because of what was announced as a strained right hamstring. Dowling clocked in 4.40 seconds in his first run, the fourth-fastest among the first group of defensive backs.

Dowling’s status for the day hasn’t been confirmed, but he is on the trainer’s table on the sideline at Lucas Oil Stadium with the hamstring wrapped in ice.

Dowling’s injury history could be a concern for NFL teams. He missed five games last season because of hamstring and knee issues, and he missed the last two games of the season with a fractured left ankle.
