TEMPE, Ariz. — Former Baylor quarterback Seth Russell took another step this week toward completing his comeback from a fractured ankle in time for the NFL draft.
Russell was cleared by doctors during his medical recheck, according to a league source. The evaluation took place Thursday and Friday in Indianapolis. Russell was told he was “good to go," the source said.

Russell, who fractured his left ankle on Nov. 12, was only 80 percent healthy in early March when he attended the NFL scouting combine. He only threw at the combine and went through the interview process. Since the combine, however, Russell has worked out for the Dallas Cowboys and heard from six teams after Baylor’s pro day on April 5.
