Wormley sits out most workouts at the NFL Scouting Combine with a hamstring injury

By  | 

INDIANAPOLIS (WTVG) - Chris Wormley enters the 2017 NFL Scouting Combine with a big piece of leadership on his resume as the Whitmer High School graduate was one of two captains on the 2016 Michigan football team.

That ability to lead is one of the few personal features he'll be able to put on display here in Indianapolis as he sits out Sunday's on-field workout at Lucas Oil Stadium because of a hamstring injury he sustained while training for the combine. Wormley did participate in the Bench Press Saturday.

"My arms work just fine, " Wormley said.

That is no joke as the 6-foot-5-inch, 298 pound defensive end bench pressed 225 pounds 23 times.

Wormley is in a better position than most prospects when it comes to being ready for what to expect in the NFL.

Michigan hired Jim Harbaugh as its head football coach in December 2014 and Wormley says the new head coach instantly turned the college program into a business mindset so players can be ready for a potential professional career.
