Hamstring injury might keep Blackmon out of all drills

INDIANAPOLIS — Oklahoma State WR Justin Blackmon said Friday that he won’t run the 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine, but a source with knowledge of the situation revealed the player might not go through any drills so he can rest his tender hamstring and be fully healthy for his March 9 pro day.

Blackmon, considered the top receiver in this year’s draft class, will decide Sunday, just before the drills, if he feels healthy enough to participate.

Blackmon did participate in the bench press Saturday, lifting 225 pounds 14 times, eight behind the leaders.
