Biggs: Clausen vows to be ready for April 9 pro day

INDIANAPOLIS—Jimmy Clausen met with the Buffalo Bills and Washington Redskins on Friday, but the biggest move of the day for the Notre Dame quarterback was his move through the gauntlet of medical personnel looking to examine him.

Clausen said his medical checkup went well and his right big toe is healing nicely from surgery in January. He said he expects to be fully cleared in time for his pro day in South Bend, Ind., on April 9. That would seem to dispute a report made earlier this week by Charley Casserly on the NFL Network.

Clausen has two tendons reattached in his foot in the surgery, and played nearly the entire season for the Fighting Irish with the injury.

“I went through (the medical) process yesterday,” Clausen said. “It took quite a bit of time. They said it looks really good and it’s healing. They told me to take my time and not push it too much.

“That is what I am shooting for (to do everything at his pro day) and that is what the doctor told me. I played the rest of the season taking painkillers. All they told me was it was turf toe. I had to gut it out for my team.”
