Andrew Vorhees entered the 2023 NFL Draft as a strong prospect following his career at USC. Unfortunately, things took a turn during the NFL Combine.

Vorhees tore his right ACL during the combine in Indianapolis, putting his draft stock in jeopardy. However, his rehab progress appears to be on track at this point in the process.

Dr. Neal ElAttrache — the surgeon in charge of Vorhees’ care — sent a note to every NFL team on Friday ahead of Rounds 2-3. The topic of that note was an overall update on Vorhees’ rehab and his outlook for the future.

According to Dr. ElAttrache, Vorhees is currently on track to return to play without restrictions:

The purpose of this letter is to confirm that Andrew Michael Vorhees is under my care for an injury which occurred on 3/5/2023 to his right knee requiring arthroscopic anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction with central third bone patellar tendon bone autograft and repair of the posterior root of the lateral meniscal on 3/29/2023.

He is currently rehabbing at Elite Orthosport in Santa Monica, California daily. Based on his surgical result and early recovery I anticipate return to play without restrictions.

Draft outlook for Andrew Vorhees

Vorhees entered the draft as a veteran contributor on the interior offensive line for the Trojans and performed well in the tests he was able to complete at the combine. In fact, he turned heads with a monster bench press performance after suffering his ACL injury hours earlier.

With his extensive playing time and the toughness he has displayed, Vorhees will likely get his NFL shot at some point, but it remains to be seen if a team will take a risk by selecting him in the draft. Dr. ElAttrache’s letter should help, but there is still some level of uncertainty with an injury of that nature.
