USC QB Matt Barkley, who has been dealing with a sprained throwing shoulder that kept him from participating in the Senior Bowl, provided an update as to how soon his shoulder will be 100 percent again.
Appearing on ESPN’s Super Bowl coverage over the weekend, Barkley explained that he had an AC joint sprain (similar to C.J. Spiller’s injury in Cleveland).
“No surgery was needed,” he said. ”Nothing to worry about, no long term injury or damage that will affect my career.”
When asked for when he’ll be back throwing Barkley said it would be soon.
“Nearly there,” he said. ”In the next couple of weeks. It’s been a drawn out process. We didn’t want to rush it and make it worse, but it’s been a great process.”
Barkley was not asked if that meant he’d be able to throw at the NFL Combine, but knowing he’d be just getting back to throwing again it’s unlikely that he would even consider throwing in Indianapolis.
