Much of this morning's news is about the race for the EA Sports video game cover - Denard Robinson is in a fierce battle with Texas A&M receiver Ryan Swope on the final day of voting for the "NCAA Football 14" cover.
But this morning on the NFL Network, Robinson told "NFL AM" via Skype that he plans to throw a few passes at Michigan's pro day Thursday in Ann Arbor.
Here's a link to the interview, with video:
"I might throw a little bit, just for a second," Robinson told the NFL Network. "Not too much dropbacks, but just show I can throw the ball, still."
Robinson sustained a nerve injury to his right arm in October in a 23-9 loss at Nebraska, and it appeared that he never fully healed through the remainder of his last season at Michigan. With the draft - and a potential NFL career - on the horizon, it's imperative that Robinson shows he is healthy.
"I'm probably like 70, 60 percent right now," Robinson said. "It's getting better and better. Every day I feel like t's getting better. From Senior Bowl to now, it's like night and day. I can actually feel it and grab things and be able to through the ball like I would. When I'm catching the ball and throwing it back to the quarterback, it feels better now."
But Robinson clarified one thing.
"I'm a receiver all the way right now," Robinson said. "I've been training this whole time, playing receiver and catching punts and catching kickoffs."
