Washington tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins, considered to be a first-round prospect by most draft prognosticators, has a stress fracture in his foot and will not be back to full strength for six to eight weeks, according to Todd Dybas of the Tacoma News Tribune (via Twitter).
It’s unclear when the 21-year old from Fox Island, Washington suffered the injury. Tight ends did their on-field work today at the NFL Scouting Combine, but Seferian-Jenkins was not among the participants.
SI.com’s Doug Farrar listed Seferian-Jenkins as one of his first-day combine sliders due to a “last minute medical issue” that forced the 6’6″ athlete to bow out. Farrar mention’s the DUI Seferian-Jenkins received in March 2013 as another issue, as well as his decreased production from 2012 to this past season.
