Injured RB Lattimore gets cheers from NFL scouts
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Marcus Lattimore worked out on his injured knee for NFL personnel, doing some exercises and pass-catching drills at South Carolina's pro day.
Lattimore hadn't been back to Williams-Brice Stadium since dislocating his right knee and tearing several ligaments against Tennessee in October. Lattimore did some step-up and balance workouts Wednesday to demonstrate his knee's progress.
Lattimore received loud applause from ex-teammates, coaches and evaluators from the 31 NFL teams attending.
The running back says he was happy with his limited workout.
He caught passes with running backs and receivers — although he walked out to a designated spot to catch the simple throws from former South Carolina passers Syvelle Newton and Seth Strickland.
Cincinnati's Marvin Lewis was the only head coach in attendance.
