Former Ohio State QB Cardales Jones injured his right hamstring while running the 40 yard dash today in Indianapolis at the NFL Combine. Jones was clocked at 4.83 in his first attempt and came in at 4.85 the second time when he sustained the injury.
The former Buckeye was seen on the sidelines with ice on his leg and did not compete in any more drills. The only drill that Jones got to complete was the vertical jump. He actually tied for first with Memphis QB Paxton Lynch with cardale a 36 inch vertical jump.
Even though Jones didn’t get to show what he could due to the injury he should be ready to go when Ohio State hosts their pro day on March 11.
Jones is an intriguing prospect and is thought to be a mid-round selection in the 2016 NFL Draft. He came out of nowhere to lead Ohio State to the National Championship in 2015 with wins over Alabama and Oregon but last season he was benched in favor of JT Barrett. Jones has a big arm and is surprisingly mobile if he lands in the right situation he could compete to the backup in the NFL next season.
