Boise State cornerback Jamar Taylor won’t play in today’s Senior Bowl because of illness, he tweeted an hour before the game.
Taylor had tweeted Friday that he wasn’t feeling well.
“I just wanna tell all my family, friends & bronco nation I'm not playing in todays game. I'm really sick n couldn't find the energy to play,” Taylor tweeted Saturday.
The Senior Bowl is the most prestigious college all-star game but the practices — attended by far more NFL scouts, coaches and front-office personnel than the game — are the critical part of the week.
Taylor performed well in practices, I reported in this story.
Taylor will get another chance to perform in front of NFL folks at the Scouting Combine. His workout is Feb. 26 in Indianapolis.
