Aaron Corp, the starting quarterback for Richmond’s recent 3-8 campaign, has been invited to the 2012 NFL Scouting Combine, an invitation that appeared unlikely when he suffered a season-ending knee injury during the 2010 season.
The injury, which he suffered during a 17-0 loss to the University of New Hampshire on Oct. 9, 2010, required immediate surgery. Chris Jones, director of sports medicine at Richmond, was in charge of Corp’s rehabilitation. He said Corp had torn four different structures in his knee, and the knee only had five main structures.
“The injury was severe enough that it could have been considered a career-ending injury,” Jones said. “Not every athlete could have come back from this injury.”
