COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP/WIS) - Marcus Lattimore worked out on his injured knee for NFL personnel, doing some exercises and pass-catching drills at South Carolina's pro day.
Lattimore hadn't been back to Williams-Brice Stadium since dislocating his right knee and tearing several ligaments against Tennessee in October. Lattimore did some step-up and balance workouts Wednesday to demonstrate his knee's progress.
"My knee is good," said Lattimore. "I could be out there doing something, but
it's just not smart to be doing that at this time. I'm doing great and I'll be
ready to go. I wanted to be out there really bad, just go out there and run
some routes because I love football."
Lattimore received loud applause from ex-teammates, coaches and evaluators from the 31 NFL teams attending.
The running back says he was happy with his limited workout.
He caught passes with running backs and receivers - although he walked out to a designated spot to catch the simple throws from former South Carolina passers Syvelle Newton and Seth Strickland.
Cincinnati's Marvin Lewis was the only head coach in attendance.
