PASADENA, CA - JANUARY 07: Running back Trent Richardson #3 of the Alabama Crimson Tide runs for a 49-yard touchdown against the Texas Longhorns in the second quarter of the Citi BCS National Championship game at the Rose Bowl on January 7, 2010 in Pasadena, California.

Alabama running back Trent Richardson will not take part in the on-field drills at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis after undergoing a minor knee surgery, according to an ESPN report. Richardson, who is likely to be the first player at his position drafted, had his representatives send a memo to all 32 NFL teams notifying them of this procedure. Alabama's pro day is scheduled for March 7, but Richardson will miss that workout, too. According to the memo, Richardson won't be able to participate in on-field activity until late March. Richardson, who won the Doak Walker Award, given to the nation's best running back, has reportedly made good progress since the procedure, but will skip the drills at Lucas Oil Stadium as a precaution.
