League and combine officials would not confirm the diagnosis Saturday, but Jeff Foster, president of National Football Scouting Inc., explained Sunday that they don't give out medical information.
There was another scare during Sunday's workouts with the receivers when Missouri's Jeremy Maclin took a tumble. He sat out a portion of the drills before returning near the end of his workout.
Foster provided no information on that injury, either.
And Foster did not address the strange saga of Andre Smith, the offensive tackle from Alabama, who couldn't be found for Saturday morning's workouts. Apparently, Smith moved up his flight and left town early without telling combine officials.
His absence was announced on the public address system inside the stadium, where reporters are not permitted with the exception of those from NFL Network.
It's not unusual for players to leave Indianapolis early, though they normally provide that information before departing.
Smith is considered by many to be the top tackle and possibly the No. 1 overall pick in the draft.
