Oklahoma WR Marquise Brown underwent surgery for a LisFranc injury in January and will be sidelined for the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis later this month, according to a report by ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Brown, who is projected by most analysts as a first-round pick, also will be sidelined for his Pro Day but is expected to be ready for training camp, according to the report.
The 5-foot-10, 168-pound Brown caught 132 passes for 2,413 yards and 17 touchdowns in 25 games over two seasons for the Sooners, averaging 18.3 yards per reception. The Hollywood, Fla., native left Oklahoma after catching 75 passes for 1,318 yards and 10 touchdowns last season.
Brown suffered the injury in the Big 12 Championship Game on Dec. 1 and played through it in the Sooners’ Orange Bowl loss. He underwent surgery on Jan. 8 and all 32 NFL teams were notified about the injury and Brown’s status on Friday, according to Schefter’s report.
