It’s a big week for two former Wyoming Cowboy football players. Offensive tackle Frank Crum and linebacker Easton Gibbs will be testing at the NFL Combine at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana. According to the Wyoming Athletic Department, Gibbs will test tomorrow (Thursday), while Cum will have his testing day on Sunday.

The last time Wyoming had two representatives at the NFL Combine was in 2017, with lineman Chase Roullier and running back Brian Hill. Washington drafted Roullier in the sixth round of that year’s draft, while Hill went to the Atlanta Falcons in the fifth round.

Linebackers are scheduled to test Thursday at 1 p.m., with the offensive linemen working out Sunday at 11 a.m.
