The NFL rescinded an invite to the scouting combine for Louisiana Tech edge rusher Jaylon Ferguson on Tuesday, sources told NFL Network's Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero.

A background check reportedly revealed that Ferguson was convicted of simple battery for his involvement in a fight at a McDonald's during his freshman year.

The NFL reportedly told teams that players would be banned from the combine if they were found to have been convicted of a felony or a misdemeanor involving violence.

Ferguson is considered by some to be a potential first-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. The 23-year-old recorded 17.5 sacks and 26 tackles for loss during his final season at Louisiana Tech.
