Penn State offensive tackle Olumuyiwa Fashanu cut short his on-field workout Sunday at the NFL scouting combine because of a thigh injury, Jeff Legwold of ESPN reports.

Fashanu, who is the No. 9 player on ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr.'s latest Big Board, ran an official time of 5.11 seconds in the 40-yard dash to go with a 32-inch vertical jump and 9-foot-1 broad jump. But Fashanu then stopped his workout during the position drills.

After he briefly talked to the trainers and pulled on a hoodie, Fashanu remained on the field as the rest of the offensive linemen in his group completed their work, often applauding the efforts. Fashanu told NFL Network he expected to still be ready to participate in Penn State's pro day on March 14.

Fashanu was a two-year starter at left tackle for the Nittany Lions and likely would have been a top-10 pick in the 2023 draft had he elected not to return to Penn State for one more season.
