The SportsXchange

Only three months removed from reconstructive knee surgery, running back Marcus Lattimore said NFL doctors will be "shocked" when they examine him at this week's NFL combine.

Appearing on South Carolina University's weekly sports radio program, "Inside the Roost," the former star said he's way ahead of schedule. Though he won't do physical drills at the combine, he said he'll start running Monday and then "it's game on."

Lattimore tore three ligaments and dislocated his right knee on Oct. 27 against Tennessee. He had surgery Nov. 7 and said he planned to play this fall.

He has been rehabbing under the supervision of Dr. James Andrews, a member of the team that performed the surgery. A Washington Redskins physician, Andrews will be at combine to answer questions about Lattimore's progress. He has reportedly told Lattimore that his recovery will "shock the world."
