Alabama running back Eddie Lacy and Florida defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd will skip their pro days this week, as they recover from injuries.

Lacy, who is rated as the No. 1 running back prospect Insider in this year's NFL draft by ESPN draft expert Mel Kiper Jr., won't partake in Wednesday's workout because of tightness in his hamstring that kept him from working out at last month's NFL combine, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

Lacy, who was third in the SEC with 1,322 rushing yards and had 17 touchdowns last fall, suffered his hamstring injury while running the 40-yard dash in a mock combine event at IMG a week before the combine. An MRI later revealed that he had suffered a small tear in tissue around his hamstring.

Lacy currently ranks 24th on the Scouts, Inc. draft board Insider and will work out for scouts at a later date that has yet to be determined.

Floyd, who has charged up draft boards in the last month, will miss Florida's pro day on Tuesday after rolling his ankle at the combine, his agent said Friday. Floyd will work out for scouts at Florida on March 22.

The 6-3, 297-pounder currently ranks No. 1 on Kiper's latest Big Board and Scouts, Inc. has the Oakland Raiders drafting Floyd with the third overall pick in its latest mock draft.

Floyd totaled 46 tackles, with three sacks and a team-high 13 tackles for loss last season, while forcing a fumble and blocking two kicks. He really impressed with a tremendous showing at the combine, where he ran a 4.92 40 and showed off a 40-inch vertical. With health concerns surrounding Utah's Star Lotulelei, Floyd could replace him as the first defensive tackle taken in this year's draft.

Neither injury appears to be very serious, and the good news is that both will be able to hold workouts before draft time. These injuries likely won't hurt either player's stock, either.
