Quarterback Cardale Jones injures hamstring while running 40
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Quarterback Cardale Jones' draft stock may have taken another hit Saturday when the former Ohio State player pulled up lame on his second 40-yard dash attempt at the NFL's annual scouting combine Saturday.
NFL Network reported that Jones pulled a hamstring. He was unofficially clocked in 4.83 seconds.
After starting the last three games of the 2014 season and leading Ohio State to the national championship, Jones turned down a chance to enter the draft early and instead returned to school. He reclaimed the Buckeyes' starting job last summer, but when he was benched in mid-October.
He was hoping an impressive performance this weekend would help him start moving back up draft boards around the league.
