Former UNLV wide receiver Ryan Wolfe pulled his left hamstring while running the 40-yard dash today at Rebel Park, and had to pulled himself out of other drills.
The injury was a setback for Wolfe, who did not run the 40 at last month's NFL scouting combine in Indianapolis because of a broken left foot. But the hamstring injury is not believed to be serious, and Wolfe hopes to schedule another workout within the next two weeks.
At least 16 NFL teams were represented today, and the Atlanta Falcons seem to have particularly high interest in Wolfe. Falcons coach Mike Smith and general manager Thomas Dimitroff will visit with Wolfe on Saturday in Las Vegas.
Also, former Rebels linebacker Beau Bell ran the 40 for the scouts in hopes of returning to the NFL. Bell, who was clocked at 5.0 seconds, played for the Cleveland Browns in 2008, but did not play last season after being cut in training camp.
Guard/center Joe Hawley, linebacker Jason Beauchamp and safety Marquel Martin also were among those who worked out.
Teams in attendance were the Falcons, Browns, Buffalo Bills, Chicago Bears, Denver Broncos, Detroit Lions, Green Bay Packers, Indianapolis Colts, Minnesota Vikings, New England Patriots, New Orleans Saints, New York Giants, Oakland Raiders, Philadelphia Eagles, San Diego Chargers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
