Report: Jaelen Strong has broken bone in his wrist

New, 4 comments

The development could effect his draft stock

Matt Kartozian-USA TODAY Sports

Jaelen Strong had quite the career at ASU and leaves Tempe among the best wide receivers to ever wear the maroon and gold. Strong's path to the NFL hit a reported speed bump Wednesday when Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reported Jaelen Strong has a broken bone in his wrist.

Strong potentially hurt his hand in the Territorial Cup last season but performed well at the NFL Combine and his ASU pro day where he didn't seem to have any issues catching footballs. In his two seasons at ASU, Strong amassed 2,287 receiving yards with 17 touchdowns and 157 catches.

In his latest mock draft, Mel Kiper Jr. had Strong going to the Kansas City Chiefs with the No. 18 overall pick. The severity of the break will likely determine how far Strong might fall in the draft, if at all.

Update 1:50 p.m.:

Strong has tweeted out some details. Nov. 1 was against Utah at home.
