Morning Links: Day 2 at the combine

Good morning.

Pete Carroll just wrapped up on the podium. Not much new from him.

Carroll said they are still deciding whether Russell Okung will have to surgery. As of now, he may not.

We'll have some more from Carroll in a bit.

Day two here at the combine has been dominated by talk about Johnny Manziel's height. He measured 5-11 3/4, producing a bunch of headlines about how he is not six feet tall. We'll move on.
