Memphis QB Paxton Lynch says his previous injuries spooked a few teams

Memphis quarterback Paxton Lynch is considered a first round draft pick by many, and today when it was his turn to meet the media he was held up by team doctor’s.  According to Lynch, a couple teams were spooked by what they seen.

“When I hurt my AC joint my sophomore year against Cincinnati, I didn’t realize that I had a small fracture in my clavicle,” Lynch said, via “So that showed up on the x-ray. But it’s healed. There are pieces of bones just floating around in there. It spooked a team or two, so they requested an MRI.”

Lynch said he is good to go and he has no pain. He also talked about running a pro style offense.

“The schemes are going to be a little bit different. I’m going to have to call the plays from the huddle,” Lynch said. “But that isn’t something I see as an issue as long as I work on it. I know some of the pass protections and things will be similar, just different terminology. As long as I get to work, I don’t see it as something I can’t handle.”
