Running back Rodney Anderson only weighed in at Pro Day as he continues to recover from a torn anterior cruciate ligament that ended his season in September.
After an OU career that also featured a broken neck and leg, Anderson said he was being conservative with the rehab process so that he’d be 100 percent when he returned to the field.
“Teams got to be thorough. They check all medical history,” Anderson said. “I just tell them straight up — they’re all unrelated injuries. The tag of injury-prone, I feel like is inappropriate. That’s not what I am. It’s three weird injuries and unfortunately they happened to me.
“My mom says bad things happen in threes. Hopefully that means I’m done with them.”
Offensive linemen plan tattoos
Oklahoma is expected to have four offensive linemen drafted this season, with Cody Ford, Bobby Evans, Ben Powers and Dru Samia all going through the NFL Combine and then working out Wednesday.
Ford, who is projected by many to be a first-round pick, said the group remained tight throughout the process and plans to cement that bond together soon, including redshirt sophomore-to-be Creed Humphrey as well.
“I grew up an only child,” Ford said. “As soon as I got here — Ben, Bobby and Dru — we were all in the same class. Those are my brothers for life.”
