Chris Polk Denies Rumors Of Hip Injury

Former Washington Huskies running back Chris Polk saw his stock drop leading up to the 2012 NFL Draft. Over the weekend, rumors started circling that Polk had a degenerative hip issue. Perhaps as a result of those rumors, Polk went undrafted, but following Saturday's final round, the running back signed a contract with the Philadelphia Eagles.

According to Frank Cooney at CBD Sports, Polk denied the rumors after signing with the Eagles.

"I will just have to go out there and show them I have a lot of great football left in me," Polk told NFLDraftScout.com after agreeing to a deal with the Eagles. "I know teams are concerned about my shoulder, but I also heard somebody say something about a degenerative hip and there is just no truth to that. I had labrum surgery on the shoulder a year ago and it didn't slow me down last season."

Hopefully Polk will have plenty of opportunities to fully dispell those rumors and have the last laugh over teams that passed up on him due to hearsay.
