Less than a week before the draft comes word that Pitt offensive tackle T.J. Clemmings, considered a likely first-round pick, has a stress fracture in his foot.

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reports that the injury showed up during Clemmings' medical exam at the NFL Scouting Combine. Further, team doctors on visits informed him it was an old injury that had calcified.

Agent Mike McCartney said the injury causes Clemmings no pain and that he never has had to do any rehab on his foot.

Nevertheless, it's likely some teams have downgraded Clemmings because of the injury issue. Plus, Clemmings has played only two years along the offensive line as it is.

The Clemmings injury news comes shortly after news broke that Missouri defensive end Shane Ray also has a foot injury. Ray's potentially seems more severe, though.
