It is unfortunate news, but Alabama Crimson Tide running back Eddie Lacy will be unable to participate in the 2013 NFL Scouting Combine after suffering a hamstring injury.  Lacy is considered by many to be the top running back in the 2013 NFL Draft class, however, he injured himself during workouts last week, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter. His injury is said to be a ”small tear in some tissue around his hamstring.”

The Alabama star is hoping to workout at Alabama’s pro day March 13.

Lacy was viewed as the only running back worth a first-round pick in April’s draft, so it will be interesting to see how this injury affects his draft stock. There has been at least one running back drafted in the first round every year since 1964 and Lacy hopes to keep the streak rolling.

Let us hope that the injury will not jeopardize that streak.

Even if Lacy does slip out of the first-round, it would be a shock to see him slide out of the top fifty picks.
