Crabtree might not run 40 during personal workout

Posted:

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Texas Tech standout Michael Crabtree might not perform in front of NFL scouts after all.

The top-rated receiver in this year's draft told NFL Network Tuesday there's only a 50-50 chance he would run at his personal workout next month in Lubbock.

Doctors at the league's annual scouting combine in Indianapolis on Saturday diagnosed a stress fracture in Crabtree's left foot and recommended surgery to insert a screw. Rehabilitation is expected to take 10 weeks or more.

The draft is April 25-26.

Crabtree earlier said he would delay surgery until after his personal workout. Now he says he's going to take some time and evaluate it. There could be additional questions about his durability.

Crabtree spent part of last season dealing with a right ankle injury.
