Former Texas A&M running back Tra Carson was fully healthy for the first time in quite a while when he took the field on Wednesday for his pro day workout.
Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin revealed on Wednesday that Carson played all of last season with a “severe” toe injury that eventually required offseason surgery, as reported by KAGS TV’s Colin Deaver.
It didn’t look like Carson was playing through any pain during his productive senior season. He ran for 1,165 yards and seven touchdowns and also caught 29 passes for 183 yards and a touchdown last season.
Carson is rated as the No. 31 tailback in the 2016 draft class, and is projected to be an undrafted free agent, according to CBSSports.com. Carson’s toughness cannot be questioned, however, and playing through this high degree of pain could earn him some more respect among NFL circles.
