Tre Mason disputes report he needs wrist surgery

Tre Mason AP

According to a published report, Auburn tailback Tre Mason will require wrist surgery that could keep him out until the preseason.

However, the running back himself took to Twitter on Friday to say he would not be having surgery.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, Mason has been found to have a bone in his wrist that needs surgery to repair, with the discovery coming at the NFL Scouting Combine. According to Rapoport, Mason was one of the players who has gone through a medical recheck after the Combine. The medical recheck is common for players who are coming off of injuries or were found to have a potential issue at the Combine in February, where medical testing for all invited prospects occurs.

However, Mason responded to Rapoport’s report on Twitter — with Rapoport responding that NFL teams had been told of Mason’s injury:

Mason also tweeted the following regarding his health:

Mason rushed for 1,816 yards and 23 touchdowns in 2013 for Auburn, garnering 2013 SEC Offensive Player of the Year honors. According to NFL.com, he is projected as a second-round pick and is the second-highest graded back in the Class of 2014.

    When he used to cover the Pats, Rapsheet’s reporting had the accuracy of Mark Sanchez.

    I would take Tre over Trent Richardson. Maybe the Browns will nab him at the end of rnd 1.

    Immediately after the draft, Mason will have surgery on his wrist.

    Here’s hoping the Titans draft him in Round 2 …

    Tre Mason being a 2nd round prospect is an example of how much rbs have been devalued. This guy is an elite player from an elite program and performed at the highest level last year. 10 years ago he’s a potential top 10 pick. This year, he’s a consensus… second rounder.

    I’m not saying it’s wrong, it’s just strange how the league has evolved.
