Texas Tech WR Prospect Michael Crabtree has foot injury requiring surgery

Day 2 of the Combine and we already have a huge story - Texas Tech Wide Receiver Michael Crabtree has a stress fracture in his foot which will require surgery. Adam Shefter of NFLNetwork is reporting it could sideline him for 10 weeks, keeping him from running or working out at his Pro Day and possibly putting him out of action longer.

It's hard to say what this could do to his draft stock - as I have said all week, film is king. But that 40 time for a receiver is critical in the eyes of many scouts and coaches.

We know what Crabtree can do on game film. We think we know what he is capable of. And nobody wants to see him rush back and risk re-injuring himself.

Should be interesting to hear what the analysts and scouts have to say. Can you risk a potential top 5 pick on a guy with no workout numbers?

We'll find out in just over 60 days.
