According to an interview with cbssports.com, Andre Ellington said that he went through his personal pro day not completely heathly.

Edholm: Your Pro Day workout came about a month later, and your agent said he wanted to cancel it for fear that you were not fully healthy. How close did you come to not working out that day?

Ellington: I was about 85 percent healthy that day, and I actually played in some games where I was less healthy that that. I actually played pretty well in those games. My Pro Day was really similar to that. I was able to get out there, run and do some drills.

Edholm: And you chose to run your 40-yard dashes after a 90-minute workout. Why not do that first?

Ellington: Yes. For one, I was already loose. I felt like I would be warmed up that way. On a side note I kind of wanted to show [NFL teams] that it's the mentality for me to go out there and run the 40 after being exhausted and sore and things like that at the end of the workout.
