Christian Ponder won’t be attending medical re-check

Recently, CBSSports.com posted a list of the players who will be attending the medical re-check in Indianapolis.  One of the players who supposedly will make the trek to Indianapolis is Florida State quarterback Christian Ponder.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Ponder has not been asked to return for the medical re-check.

Players who return to the site of the Scouting Combine for further evaluation have health issues that justify a closer look before the draft.  Ponder suffered a separated shoulder in 2009, and an elbow injury in 2010.

The fact that he won’t be going back to Indianapolis means that doctors felt no need to take a closer look at Ponder, who participated in the Scouting Combine and at his Pro Day workout.
