Okung wanted to keep going

In response to the news that Oklahoma State lineman Russel Okung didn’t finish his Scouting Combine workout due to an injury, a source with knowledge of the situation tells us that Okung wanted to continue.

Per the source, trainers directed Okung not to finish the workout.

Though we’ve never caught wind of liability concerns regarding the Combine drills, we can understand why the powers-that-be would pull the plug on a guy who could do more damage to himself — and thus harm his draft stock — by working out while injured.

We’re told it’s a minor tweak to the groin, and that it should not affect Okung’s pre-draft preparations.
