2013 NFL Combine: Top senior TE Kelce out with injury

**Update: Travis Kelce plans to run and work out at Cincinnati's Pro Day on March 13.

Cincinnati senior tight end Travis Kelce will be sidelined during workouts this week at the 2013 scouting combine in Indianapolis due to an abdominal tear, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer. He suffered the injury last month and was unable to participate in the Senior Bowl.

Considered a possible second-round pick, Kelce is NFLDraftScout.com's No. 3 tight end and top senior at the position. On Thursday, he measured just under 6-foot-5, 255 pounds with 33 3/4-inch arms and 9 5/8-inch hands. Kelce is the younger brother of Jason Kelce, who was a sixth- round pick of the Philadelphia Eagles in the 2011 NFL Draft.

Kelce led the Bearcats in every receiving category in 2012 with 45 catches for 722 yards and eight touchdowns, ranking among the nation's leaders in tight end production. He had just 14 catches on his resume entering the season, but used an All-Conference senior year to propel himself into the top-50 discussion of this year's draft.

Kelce is highly rated because of his all-around ability, competing in the trenches as a physical blocker, but also creating as a receiver at all levels. He was expected to run in the 4.6 range in the 40-yard dash and test well at his Pro Day, scheduled for March 13.
