Former University of Kentucky Tight End, C.J. Conrad, was diagnosed with a heart issue at the NFL Combine and he confirms he won’t be cleared to compete in drills.

Conrad is on his way back to Lexington to go through some more testing to find out exactly what the issue could be. It first came to light during a physical at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis. Once the doctor’s heard something they didn’t like, Conrad was medically disqualified from taking part in the workouts.

Conrad had 80 career receptions for 1,015 yards and 12 touchdowns.
