NFL Prospect Boyce Breaks Foot

Former Texas Christian University wide receiver standout Josh Boyce has a Jones fracture in his right foot, a fracture of the fifth metatarsal.
Boyce participated in the 2013 combine and it is unknown if he broke his toe while preparing or there on the field. If he participated while he had the fracture, kudos to him for putting up impressive numbers, ranking among position leaders in the 40 yard dash (4.38 seconds) three-cone drill (6.68), long shuffle (11.26), bench press (22 reps), and broad jump (10'11).
Boyce suffered soreness in his foot after Indianapolis and had X-rays which confirmed the diagnosis. He had surgery on the foot last Tuesday and a screw was inserted to stabilize the joint. A recovery time of six to eight weeks should allow Boyce to be ready for mini-camps in May. He was unable to play in TCU's Pro Day last week.
At 5-foot-11, 206 pounds, Boyce was given the opportunity to play as a redshirt freshman in 2010, playing in every game, and emerged as a natural playmaker. He had his best season in 2011, leading the team with 61 catches for 998 yards and nine scores.
Boyce currently ranks as the No. 20 wide receiver on the NFL Draft Scout board and will likely be picked up in the fifth round. His rankings might rise because of his excellent workout and league sources pin him as a potential day two prospect.
