INDIANAPOLIS --€” Apparently, massage can improve a QB's hand size. Or least hand measurement.

Last month, former Arkansas quarterback Brandon Allen's hands were measured at the Senior Bowl at 8 1/2 inches — the smallest of all the QBs there. Earlier in the week, Allen revealed to FOX Sports that he had been doing regular massage sessions with a therapist who claimed he could boost the measurement in preparation of the NFL Combine and Allen's Pro Day.

On Thursday, Allen's hands were measured at the combine at 8 7/8 inches.

"The therapist thinks we can get it to nine-plus," Allen said. "That's what I'm shooting for by pro day. I'm going to keep on doing it."
