Injury will force C.J. Conrad to Miss the East-West Shrine Game

Former Kentucky tight end C.J. Conrad will not get a week to work out in front of NFL Scouts.

On the second day of practice for the East-West Shrine Game in St. Petersburg, Florida, Conrad suffered a shoulder injury.  KSR sources confirmed that Conrad has returned to Lexington to receive treatment from UK physicians.  The shoulder sprain is considered a minor injury. Conrad will return to pre-Draft training next week is expected to be 100 percent healthy at the NFL Combine in late February.

The play in question that caused the injury was almost a miraculous catch.  Conrad was fully extended on a deep route, but could not reel in the reception.

Conrad enters the draft after setting career-highs in receptions (30) and receiving yards (318) in 2018.   Walter Football ranks Conrad is the No. 8 tight end prospect in the 2019 NFL Draft.

    Hate it for him. Wouldve been higher in the draft if Gran would’ve used him more.

      Hope Gran is watching this, look Eddie it is legal to have guys run routes, and throw the ball, down the field. Gran totally wasted the talent CJ has and hurt his draft position.

    That’s why neither he nor anyone else on this team needs games like this. Said it before the season was over and I’ll say it again. They have plenty of tape of our guys against great talent in the SEC. No need for them to do this.

    He’ll get with a better team further down the draft table than he would at the top. A smart coach will snatch him up.
