If you were hoping to see how Arizona State wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk or Auburn offensive tackle Prince Tega Wanogho would fare during Saturday’s Senior Bowl, then you came away disappointed as the two were among five players who were held out of practices and the game after being flagged for medical issues.
Here’s what we know so far about those players:
A handful of other players were injured during practice or the game or were suffering from lingering injuries. Those players include South Carolina DL Javon Kinlaw, USC WR Michael Pittman Jr. (ligament strain in foot), Penn State LB Cam Brown (undisclosed minor injury), Auburn edge Marlon Davidson (ankle injury), Clemson OG John Simpson (ankle), Notre Dame safety Alohi Gilman (hamstring strain), Texas Tech OT Terrence Steele (unknown injury) and St. John’s OL Ben Bartch (unknown injury).
Kinlaw got banged up during practices and was eventually held out as he dealt with minor tendinitis in one of his knees, according to the NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero. The injury isn’t serious.
In addition, several players accepted invites but didn’t participate in the game – mostly due to injuries – including Utah running back Zack Moss, South Carolina wide receiver Bryan Edwards, Louisiana-Lafayette guard Robert Hunt, Notre Dame defensive end Khalid Kareem, Oregon linebacker Troy Dye, TCU cornerback Jeff Gladney, Ohio State cornerback Damon Arnette, Utah safety Julian Blackmon and Texas safety Brandon Jones.
