2014 NFL Combine: Cornelius Lucas out 6-8 weeks with foot injury
The Kansas State offensive tackle will be sidelined for almost two months with a stress fracture in his left foot, an injury that could prevent him from working out prior to the 2014 NFL Draft
Kansas State offensive tackle Cornelius Lucas will be sidelined for six-to-eight weeks with a stress fracture in his left foot. He suffered the injury during his pre-Combine training, but it was just discovered this week in Indianapolis.
It’s too early to predict if Lucas will be healthy enough to work out for NFL teams prior to the NFL Draft in May. Widely considered a mid-to-late round draft choice, the injury could force Lucas to go the undrafted route to the NFL.
A native of New Orleans, Lucas is the tallest player at the 2014 NFL Combine at 6-8 and 316 pounds with 10” hands and the longest arms (36 3/4") as well. He started at left tackle the last two seasons for the Wildcats with his large wingspan to engulf rushers, but his heavy feet and bad habit of overextending are concerns as he makes the jump to the NFL game.
