Clausen to have surgery on torn ligaments in toe

From South Bend Tribune:

Jimmy Clausen sent his NFL Draft stock skyrocketing when he not only played through pain, but did so with record-breaking production.

Tuesday, the former Notre Dame quarterback will have to deal with a second shot of adversity.

According to a report by ESPN.com's Tom Friend, Clausen will undergo surgery to repair torn ligaments in his right big toe and is expected to be sidelined two to three months. That knocks Clausen out of the physical portion of the NFL Scouting Combine, the invitation-only audition of sorts for NFL personnel, Feb. 24-March 2 in Indianapolis.

Clausen declared for the draft Dec. 7, leaving a year of eligibility on the table. He told ESPN.com that he intends to throw for pro scouts in early April. The 2010 NFL Draft is April 22-24, and Clausen is projected by virtually every mock draft to not last beyond the first round. Some, in fact, have the 6-foot-3, 223-pounder coming off the board first, to the St. Louis Rams, who hold the first pick.
