Texas quarterback Colt McCoy, who suffered a nerve injury in his right shoulder during last month’s national championship game, said Monday that he has healed well enough that he’ll try to throw at the NFL scouting combine.
“I see the doctors every week,” McCoy said. “I go through the rehab process every day. I’m healing much quicker than normal.”
McCoy said he’s currently throwing 40 to 50 passes a day and is close to 100 percent, although he added that he won’t go through all the combine drills if his doctors tell him the shoulder needs more rest.
Heading into the combine, which starts on February 24, McCoy is generally regarded as the third-best quarterback in this year’s draft, behind Oklahoma’s Sam Bradford and Notre Dame’s Jimmy Clausen.
