Well this just ruins our week

Sadly shirts are now mandatory ..uh, we mean thankfully!/sigh – “Edwards said he “tweaked a hamstring” while running a pass route during training last week and might not be able to run the 40-yard dash when quarterbacks and receivers go through drills Sunday in Indianapolis. “I’m not going to run if it’s not 100 percent.””

AE IN TOP FIVE? Hmmmm – “Levi Brown is a 6-foot-3-inch quarterback from Troy. Opinions on his NFL future vary widely. Pro Football Weekly ranks him fifth behind Bradford from Oklahoma, Clausen from Notre Dame, Colt McCoy from Texas and Armanti Edwards from Appalachian State.”

    Well that sure sucks. But hope he doesn't push it. No reason to mess with a bad hammy.

    He "knicked" his foot with the lawnmower

    wow, first time I've seen anyone put him in those categories except his dear AppFans.

    Let's see her. It was the Elon game where he got hurt and left the first half, BUT WHEN HE CAME BACK HE WENT 9 FOR 9 IN PASS COULD NOT RUN BUT APP ST STILL WON THE GAME 27-10.

    In addition to the concerns of some (not many on this site) about his size, level of collegiate competition, and lack of under-center experience, AE seems somewhat injury prone. Can't really count the lawnmower incident, but he missed lots of time because of various football-related injuries the past two seasons.

    I was just about to post the same. I worry that the scouts may see that he has history of injuries. He is a tough guy and has proven to be durable but he does seem to suffer his fair share of injuries.

    I agree. And pulling a hammy during a route isn't as risky as getting demolished by someone like Julius Peppers. I hope he eats his spinach.

    all the more reason for him to NOT be running routes. Sit back and pick the defenses off with your arm and strike fear into them with your escapability…

    Good luck AE, hopefully this doesn't hurt your NFL stock too much

    Hot damn a 4.4 range, if he put down a 4.3 that would knock his draft status up!

    Hopefully the Panthers will be paying attention……

    No way Peppers would catch him these days. That would involve Julius actually having to run full speed and maybe break a sweat.

    Dear Jerry Richardson,

    Please sign Armanti Edwards.

    All quarterbacks that run our system are prone to injury.

    So true Clayton. I'm surprised he wasn't injured more. He took some licks.

    Armanti will not be participating in any WR drills at the combine… he will only throw and do QB drills. He will get his hamstring healthy and do the WR drills at pro day, March 16th.

    Really unfortunate for AE… i just hope it doesn't have any huge effects on his draft stock.

    not to speculate but this sounds like more than a "tweak"

    Saw this about Armanti on the panthers blog comments – appears to be his 'specs' taken at the combine:

    "..He measured under 6 feet (5-11), usually the cutoff for NFL QB's.

    In spite of his lack of height, he was tied for 8th (out of 19) among QB's in arm length (32 1/4 inches), and hand size (9 1/2 inches)."
