If that timetable holds true, McElroy should be OK for the NFL Scouting Combine, which begins Feb. 23 in Indianapolis.
McElroy, who led Alabama to the BCS national title in the 2009 season, hit his hand on a helmet as he followed through on a fourth-quarter pass to South Alabama's Courtney Smith. McElroy fininshed the series but said he "had no feeling" in his hand.
"The ball was kind of sporadic," said McElroy, who cracked a bone near his thumb, according to his father. "I couldn't get a grip on the ball. I still can't get a grip on the ball. I think it will be OK."
