Dexter Lawrence’s NFL combine appearance didn’t go exactly as planned.
The Clemson defensive tackle suffered an apparent leg injury while running the 40-yard dash and he walked off limping. He immediately wrapped an ice pack around his left quad and he will not participate in the rest of the workout, according to NFL Network.

Despite the injury, the 6-4, 342-pound tackle still recorded an unofficial time of 5.05 seconds. It was his first and only run of the day.
Lawrence will have another chance to workout for teams at Clemson’s pro day March 14, but it’s not yet clear if he will be healthy to participate. NFL Network notes prospects dealing with injuries in the past have opted to hold their own personal pro day at a later date.
A starter for three years, Lawrence logged 131 tackles, 18 tackles for loss and 10 sacks during his time at Clemson.
