    Keenan Allen not going to work out at combine

    Keenan Allen not going to work out at combine

    Cal's Keenan Allen, projected by many NFL Draft analysts as a first-round pick in April's draft, will not work out at this week's combine in Indianapolis, his agent J.T. Johnson confirmed to Wednesday morning.

    The 6-3, 212-pound Allen, whom NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock compared to Baltimore Ravens star Anquan Boldin, is Cal's all-time leader in receptions. Allen caught 205 passes for 2,570 yards and 17 touchdowns in three seasons in Berkeley despite the Bears struggles in the passing game. Last season, Allen missed three games due to what had been deemed a Grade 2 posterior cruciate ligament tear in his left knee. NFL teams have been eager to gauge Allen's speed and were hopeful to see him run the 40 in Indianapolis, but they'll have to wait about six more weeks to do so.

    Allen had some swelling in his knee while he was training. He went to get an MRI and saw noted orthopedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews, who diagnosed Allen as having a Grade 2 PCL strain. According to Allen's agent, Andrews told the 20-year-old wideout that his injury should not ever require surgical intervention.

    Allen is scheduled to have a follow-up exam with Andrews on March 11. Allen will continue to do rehab to strengthen his quad muscles while the knee heals, and he will run routes only at Cal's pro day March 14, Johnson said.

    Allen will have a separate pro day in the first week of April where any team that wants to see him run the 40 or test him in the vertical or do any physical drills can would be able to do so.
