Senior Bowl 2017
North & South Practices
Key Performers at the Senior Bowl Practices
OL Forrest Lamp of Western Kentucky was one of the early stars of the Senior Bowl practices in drills when he went down with an ankle injury. He stopped practicing after a high ankle sprain sustained this week. It may jeopardize him playing in the game Saturday. Earlier, he helped his cause significantly with a display of highly developed technique along with footwork, strong hands and the strength to anchor. He won continuously in one on one drills on Tuesday and proved highly competitive in the process. The ankle injury will be monitored through the week with his availability for practices most likely finished.
