According to three different team sources, LSU DT Glenn Dorsey is surprisingly not scheduled to appear at the Combine re-check next weekend despite concerns by many teams that he has a slight stress fracture in his right tibia.
Dorsey showed at his pro-day workout that he was healthy enough to complete a grueling positional workout, but his workout numbers were not particularly impressive.
(Dorsey) looked extremely stiff in the shuttles, said one executive in attendance. He could not bend or touch line. He did not show a lot of lower-body flexion.
He looked great in the positional workout, showing burst and acceleration. He finished drills. He knew Tim Krumrie was waiting for him and he still did a real good job and left everything on the field. He exhausted himself gave it his all just like you see him do on tape.
Despite not having to revisit Indianapolis, Dorsey will be poked and prodded by the team doctors of the Rams and Falcons in private visits and his leg injuries will be much more heavily scrutinized.
Based on feedback from four teams that have analyzed the results of Dorsey's MRI taken at the Combine, a thin black line did appear in his tibia and it clearly has been slow to heal. Calcium has formed on top of the stress fracure and provides enough support to play through it initially. Eventually, however, at least three team doctors have shared the opinion with their general managers that the fracture eventually will have to crack to heal properly.
Overall, the injury does not figure to hurt Dorsey's draft prospects much, if at all, but it could still play a role on Draft Day.
