INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WRCB) -- Former Alabama running back Eddie Lacy will reportedly skip workouts at this week's NFL Combine because of a hamstring injury.
ESPN's Adam Schefter was first to report Monday that Lacy will not be able to work out for pro scouts after suffering a small tear to the hamstring while training for the annual prospect showcase.
Shefter reports Lacy hopes to be healthy enough to go through drills for scouts at Alabama's annual pro day in March.
Lacy battled early season injuries last fall, but broke out late in the season with 551 yards and eight touchdowns over his final four games. That stretch included a dominating 181-yard, two-touchdown effort in the national championship game against Notre Dame -- the only game Lacy said he played all season at 100-percent health.
Both ESPN's Mel Kiper, Jr. and NFL Network's Mike Mayock list Lacy as the top running back in the upcoming April draft.
Lacy will be one of ten former Alabama players attending the combine this week, but will join ex-Tide offensive lineman Barrett Jones in skipping workouts because of an injury.
