Report: Olu Fashanu Suffers Right Thigh Injury At 2024 NFL Combine

Former Penn State football offensive lineman Olu Fashanu reportedly suffered a right thigh injury at the NFL Combine Sunday, according to NFL Network correspondent Stacey Dales on Twitter.

Dales reported Fashanu will not compete in the rest of the combine’s activities Sunday but will be available for Penn State’s Pro Day on Friday, March 15.

Fashanu recorded a 5.11-second 40-yard dash time, 32″ vertical, and 9’1″ broad jump before reporting the end of his day.

Fashanu registered a 9.49/10 RAS score (Relative Athletic Score), which ranks him as the 67th-best offensive tackle performance at the NFL Combine since 1987.

Dales reported Fashanu was in “good spirits” after announcing his day at the combine would end early due to the injury.

Right now, Fashanu is projected as a top-10 selection by multiple outlets, ranking as high as No. 5.
