All-America defensive tackle Maurice Hurst has been given the OK by doctors to participate fully at Michigan’s pro day JK Scott Jersey , according to a person familiar with the situation. The person spoke Thursday night to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the clearance wasn’t announced.
Hurst, a potential first-round pick, was held out of drills at the combine three weeks ago after doctors red-flagged a heart condition.
NFL teams will have an opportunity to watch Hurst and other former Wolverines go through drills, run and lift weights on Friday.
The 6-foot-2, 280-pound Hurst had 59 tackles, including 13 for losses and 5 1/2 sacks last season. Hurst Kenyan Drake Jersey , who is from Westwood, Massachusetts, is regarded as one of the top prospects at defensive tackle available in the draft. His father played for the New England Patriots as a cornerback for seven seasons, starting 102 games.
At the combine earlier this month, Hurst told Utah defensive lineman Lowell Lotulelei he had been diagnosed with the same heart condition as Lotulelei’s older brother, Star.
”I just found out in the NFLPA meeting that we just had. He just said Tyrell Williams Jersey , `Star was your brother?’ And I said yeah. He’s like, `Man, I just got the same thing that he did,”’ Lowell Lotulelei told reporters. ”Obviously I didn’t go through it, so I don’t really know what he’s feeling like. But I kind of understand the disappointment just because my brother trained just like he trained and you’re expecting one thing and getting another. I feel for him. It sucks. But I think he’ll be fine just like my brother was.”
Five years ago, Star Lotulelei arrived at the combine as the expected first pick in that year’s draft. Things changed dramatically after doctors identified an ”abnormal” test on his heart. Lotulelei sought additional opinions and was eventually cleared to exercise. He was taken by Carolina with the 14th overall selection in the 2013 draft. And has missed just four games over five NFL seasons.
Bob Costas won’t be working the Super Bowl for NBC next month.
The longtime broadcaster was not included in the network’s lineup for the NFL title game telecast from Minneapolis on Feb. 4 LeSean McCoy Jersey , leading to speculation that Costas’ comments about head injuries in football might have affected the decision.
Dan Patrick and Liam McHugh will host the broadcast.
An NBC Sports spokesperson said: ”Dan and Liam have served as hosts for our NFL pregame/studio shows on Sunday nights and Thursday nights, respectively, throughout the season and will continue on Super Bowl Sunday.”
Costas said: ”Dan and Liam have done the job hosting NBC’s NFL coverage all season. It wouldn’t be right for me to parachute in and do the Super Bowl.”
When he stepped down as host of the Olympics last February, Costas was expected to keep his Super Bowl duties because Mike Tirico, his Olympic replacement, would be in South Korea.
Costas hosted NBC’s Super Bowl pregame coverage in 1986 Marshall Newhouse Jersey , 1989, 1993, 2009, 2012 and 2015.
During an appearance at the University of Maryland in November, he said of football: ”the reality is that this game destroys people’s brains.”
