No Senior Bowl for Cyrus Gray
By David Ubben
One more Big 12 player has checked out of the Senior Bowl.
Texas A&M running back Cyrus Gray won't participate after failing a physical this week, according to bowl officials.
Gray joins a teammate, quarterback Ryan Tannehill (broken foot), and Baylor receiver Kendall Wright (ankle) as players named to the roster but unable to play after suffering injuries.
There's been no official word on what prompted Gray to fail the test, but the likely reason stems from the stress fracture in his shoulder suffered late this past season against Kansas.
Gray sat out the final two games of the season, but hoped to be ready for this week's game.
Now, it looks like he'll have to wait for next month's combine.
