Christian Campbell Backs Out Of Reese’s Senior Bowl Citing ‘Risk Issues’

Former Penn State corner Christian Campbell has backed out of the Reese’s Senior Bowl due to unspecified “risk issues.” The former Nittany Lion was present at the practices leading up to the game, even being named Pro Football Focus’ Defensive Back of the Week.

NFL agent Brian McLaughin noted that Campbell had been battling some form of a back injury during the practices leading up to the North vs. South showdown.

Campbell was in Mobile, Alabama with other Penn Staters DeSean Hamilton, Mike Gesicki, and Marcus Allen. All three of Campbell’s former teammates are still available for the game.

Campbell is the listed as the No. 24 cornerback prospect in the 2018 NFL Draft according to CBS Sports, which is good enough for No. 175 overall. You may not want to hold your breath on an official injury update from the prospect, who may just well keep things under wrap heading into the draft.

The 2018 NFL Draft will take place from April 26-28 in Arlington, Texas.
