Brock Osweiler of Arizona State is not considered an elite quarterback prospect like Robert Griffin III or Andrew Luck, so he stood to benefit from participation in passing and athletic drills at this year’s Scouting Combine.

Osweiler is not participating, however, and he told reporters Saturday that it’s because of a sprained foot.

Osweiler alleges that the foot injury occurred during the Sun Devils’ Las Vegas Bowl loss to Boise State, according to Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic. This is the first we’ve heard of the injury.

Quarterbacks were permitted to bench press on Saturday, and Osweiler didn’t take part. He’s not going through a single drill in Indianapolis, not even the ones in which his performance would be affected in no way by the supposed foot ailment.
