Renowned orthopedist Dr. James Andrews is refuting the reports that came out during the NFL Combine about Alabama OT prospect Cyrus Kouandjio’s surgically repaired knee. Reports last month indicated that several teams failed Kouandjio on his physical due to a “botched surgery” on Kouandjio’s knee after he tore his ACL and MCL his freshman year. Andrews said that’s simply not the case.
CBSSports.com’s Jason LaCanfora is reporting that Andrews has proclaimed Kouandjio’s knee as fit and healthy. Andrews, who is based in Alabama works closely with the Alabama program and has been monitoring Kouandjio’s knee since he enrolled in Tuscaloosa.
Kouandjio played in every game his college career and according to the report never missed a practice or needed extra treatment in the training room.
Now Kouandjio must improve his workout numbers at the Alabama pro day next Wednesday March 12th to re-establish himself as a first-round caliber offensive tackle in the 2014 NFL draft.
