Report: Cardale Jones tweaks hamstring running 40-yard dash, ends day
Cardale Jones had hopes of showing off his monster arm and boosting his draft stock at the NFL Scouting Combine.
That opportunity came to an abrupt end.
The Ohio State quarterback told NFL Network that he tweaked his hamstring on his second 40-yard dash attempt, which ended his day in Indianapolis.
Jones didn’t appear at the other drills with quarterbacks following his second 40-yard dash. His unofficial time was 4.83 seconds.
NFLN reporting #OhioSt QB Cardale Jones done for the day (hamstring)..probably a good thing for other QBs not to get compared to that arm.

Jones didn’t get to compete in any of the other drills besides the vertical jump, where he reportedly recorded a 36-inch height. The severity of the injury hasn’t been reported, but Jones wasn’t believed to be in considerable pain following his second 40.
Fellow B1G East quarterbacks Christian Hackenberg and Connor Cook recorded 4.78 and 4.79 40-times, respectively.
