LAS VEGAS (KLAS) – This could’ve been much worse for the fastest man at the NFL Combine. Henry Ruggs III, who runs a 4.27 40 yard dash was not fast enough to avoid being squeezed between a trailer and a truck and receiving a cut on his thigh.

Reports are it could’ve been much worse and the cut missed his femoral artery by an inch. Ruggs’ dad says his son is OK.

The Raiders are aware of the injury but have had no comment because of privacy concerns.

Ruggs was the top draft pick for the Raiders in 2020. They picked him 12th out of Alabama.
