ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - With NFL teams poring over his college film, Cody Latimer went out for a run one cold day in January and felt a pop in his left foot.
An X-ray revealed a broken fifth metatarsal, which required surgery.
That meant he couldn't do anything but the bench press at the NFL scouting combine in February.
But it didn't keep him from running a 4.39 in the 40-yard dash at Indiana's pro day in March. Nor did it prevent the Denver Broncos from selecting him in the second round of the NFL draft earlier this month.
It is, however, keeping the Broncos from turning the wide receiver loose on the football field at their rookie minicamp this weekend.
