Georgia Tech wide receiver Demaryius Thomas, a projected first-round draft pick, broke his left foot on Wednesday while training for the NFL combine in Scottsdale, Ariz., according to SI.com.

Thomas has been ruled out of participating in any of the workouts during the combine, according to SI.com.

Thomas agent, Todd France, told SI.com that doctors expect a 4-to-6 week recovery period.

"There are no long-term effects from the injury and Demaryius will be 100 percent by the time OTA's begin," France told SI.com, adding that surgery is a possibility. "If surgery hastens the healing process, that is something we will consider."

At 6-foot-3 and 230 pounds, Thomas is an unusually big receiver with good speed. He led the Yellow Jackets with 46 receptions and led the Atlantic Coast Conference with 1,154 yards receiving and about 25 yards per catch this season.

He caught passes in 29 straight games before he was shut out in Georgia Tech's 24-14 Orange Bowl loss to Iowa in January.

Information from ESPN.com's Heather Dinich and The Associated Press was used in this report.
