Offensive lineman Andrew Vorhees’ trip to the Scouting Combine did not turn out as hoped.

Vorhees went down with an injury during drills on Sunday and it appears to be a major injury. Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reports that it is believed to be a torn ACL for the former USC starter.

If that injury is confirmed, Vorhees will be facing an extended rehab that could wipe out his entire rookie season. Vorhees did do the bench press in Indianapolis on Monday and completed 38 reps of 225 pounds.

Vorhees made 37 starts in college and 25 of them came at right guard. He was an All-American during his final college season.

  1. This is what sucks about the combine. It helps fringe players get noticed, but there is the very real chance an established guy is going to lose money.

  2. if you have a whole college career on tape at a major school and you have already been projected as a solid pick in the Draft – why would you bother to show up at the Combine?

  3. Hopefully he took out a decent insurance policy for injury. If not, this injury will literally cost him millions. Hate to see it.

  4. He was more than likely a mid to late 3rd rounder before this, so most likely falls to the late 4th to late 5th round territory for a team with a good line that can afford to wait.

  5. He could still end up making tens of millions of dollars in the NFL. Guards don’t rely on their wheels like a RB or a DB, or even a linebacker.
