Wisconsin wide receiver Jared Abbrederis tweeted that he won't play in Saturday's Reese's Senior Bowl because of an injury suffered in practice.
Unfortunately I won't be able to compete in the game because I tweaked my hamstring. I am heading home to get treatment and continueâ Jared Abbrederis (@abbrecadabra) January 24, 2014
He will be replaced in the game by Missouri's L'Damian Washington.
Before the injury, Abbrederis (6-foot-0, 189 pounds) showed well during practices. "He's consistently been the best receiver on the field this week," an AFC scout said.
Abbrederis began his Wisconsin career as a walk-on quarterback, but became one of the best receivers in school history. He is a good blocker, can get deep, has good hands and is an excellent route-runner.
He is not a blazer (4.5 in the 40-yard dash), but he is fast and elusive, has shown the necessary physicality to get away from press coverage and has big-play ability as a return man.
