INDIANAPOLIS -- Teams have waited months to see Oklahoma State wide receiver Dez Bryant run at the NFL's scouting combine.
They will have to wait a little longer.
Bryant, who played in Oklahoma State's first three games of the season before being suspended by the NCAA for lying to its investigators, will not work out with the other wide receivers in Indianapolis because of a hamstring injury.
Most players who skip the combine save their workouts for individual pro days. But due to the hamstring injury he suffered training for this weekend, Bryant might need to push back his pro day from the scheduled March 10 date in Oklahoma.
With millions of dollars and a top pick riding on his 40 time, Bryant doesn't want to run it until he's recovered.
Heading into this weekend, few players had any more to prove at the NFL scouting combine than Bryant, whom the NCAA suspended last October. Bryant was suspended for lying to the NCAA about his relationship with former NFL star Deion Sanders.
Bryant played in Oklahoma State's first three games this season while compliance officials investigated his meeting with Sanders and another former NFL player, Omar Stoutmire, that Bryant later lied about to the NCAA.
Many regard Bryant as the top wide receiver in this draft and a potential top-five pick.
Bryant finished with 147 catches for 2,425 yards and 29 touchdowns in 28 career games. He had 87 receptions for 1,480 yards and 19 TDs in his sophomore year, when he was a Biletnikoff Award finalist.
