Denard Robinson said hes still only about 60% recovered from the nerve injury that interrupted his senior season, and the former Michigan quarterback wouldnt rule out surgery to correct the problem.
Its still coming along, Robinson said today at the NFL combine. I just got some X-rays yesterday and some examination, and she said Im going to continue to get better.
Robinson did not take part in the bench press today because of the injury. He said he still feels a little tingling and numbness in his right arm, and hell consult with Michigan trainer Paul Schmidt about his options when he returns to Ann Arbor.
After a rough week catching passes and fielding kicks and punts at the Senior Bowl, Robinson said he feels more comfortable in his new roles and is looking forward to showing that during Sundays position drills and at his pro day next month.
He said hell throw at Michigans pro day next month, but teams hes met with so far mostly view him as a receiver and return specialist.
My vision is to try to be the best I can possibly be when I get to the NFL, Robinson said. Wherever a team puts me at, thats what Im going to work my tail off to be. And whatever they ask me to do, thats what Im going to do.

Denard Robinson has been one of the most intriguing NFL prospects this offseason. He is one of the few quarterback prospects in the history of the NFL that has been completely and 100% willing to change positions in order to somehow make it to the NFL.
