According to fantasy football site RotoWorld, USC Linebacker Keith Rivers sprained his ankle while working out before the Combine and has decided to skip all tests with exception of the bench press workout.

Rivers, who has been slotted by draftniks as high as No. 10 overall to the Saints, will likely miss a good chunk of the USC Pro Day on April 2. He still projects as a first-round pick and a weak-side linebacker in the NFL.

Rivers was quoted on SF49ers.com saying this is not a repeat of the ankle injury he suffered during the season:

“The ankle’s been great. It was kind of a freak accident, it’s not that big of a deal. The left one I hurt during the season and last week I hurt the right one.”
