Keenan Allen won’t work out at the Combine

Cal wide receiver Keenan Allen is still recovering from a torn posterior cruciate ligament in his left knee and will not work out at the Scouting Combine.

Agent J.T. Johnson told ESPN’s Adam Schefter that Allen will attend the Combine and go through medical exams. But Allen is only about 70 percent healed from the injury he suffered during the 2012 season, and so he’s going to wait until April to run a 40-yard dash for NFL teams.

Allen won’t need surgery, but he did aggravate the injury while working out two weeks ago, and as a result he needs to slow down his recovery. Allen does expect to be in good enough shape to run some routes at Cal’s Pro Day on March 14, but he won’t be at full speed by that point.

NFL Network’s Mike Mayock lists Allen as the No. 2 receiver in this year’s draft.

    I won’t be working out at the combines either. This must be a slow news day. Just reuse a Tebow article.

    It’s because he runs a 4.6.
