Broken foot Saunders' latest setback

Posted on: February 26, 2011 2:31 pm
Former South Carolina tight end Weslye Saunders finally caught a break – in his foot.

Suspended by the NCAA and kicked out of the Gamecocks program for his role in an investigation into improper benefits from an agent, Saunders arrived in Indianapolis looking to impress NFL scouts on a football field for the first time in more than a year. However, his medical check revealed a broken bone in his foot.

Saunders will still be able to take part in interviews with teams, which will be just as critical in recapturing some of his lost draft stock. He's currently the No. 11-rated tight end, projected as a sixth-round pick.
