Former South Carolina wide receiver and top NFL prospect Bryan Edwards announced he will miss the NFL Scouting Combine with a broken foot.

“Unfortunately, I broke my foot preparing for the combine and will need a couple months to recover,” Edwards said on social media. “This has been extremely disappointing for me. Just because [of ] how diligent I worked to get back to 100%”

The senior wideout missed the final two games of South Carolina’s season due to a sprained MCL suffered against Appalachian State in early November. An ESPN four-star recruit, the South Carolina native had been expected to compete with other 2020 NFL Draft hopefuls at the scouting combine in Indianapolis. 

Edwards left the Gamecocks as their career leader with 3,045 receiving yards. His 22 career touchdowns come in just one shy of tying Alshon Jeffrey and Sidney Rice for a school record.
