Van Jefferson to have surgery

According to reports from Adam Schefter, former Florida wide receiver Van Jefferson will miss the NFL combine due to a Jones fracture in his right foot.

The fracture was discovered during his scouting combine physical on Wednesday. Before the physical, Jefferson was unaware of the injury as he competed in the Reese’s Senior Bowl in late January.

Jefferson will undergo surgery sometime next week to repair the fracture, according to Schefter. He is expected to be out for 6-8 weeks, but it is not expected to affect his pick in the draft.

Jefferson did not bench at the Combine. He measured in at 6’1 4/8 and 200 pounds, 9 1/8-inch hands, 32 6/8-inch arms and 77 1/8-inch wingspan. He met with both the Chiefs and the Bears already.

Physicals also revealed LSU tight end Thaddeus Moss had the same injury and will also undergo surgery.
