Maze out at Senior Bowl


MOBILE, Ala. -- Former University of Alabama wide receiver Marquis Maze will no longer take part in the Senior Bowl, according to a bowl spokesman.

Maze was at Senior Bowl practices on Monday and Tuesday and took part in individual wide receiver drills, but he did not take any live snaps. He surprised many by attempting the trip to Mobile, Ala., after suffering a hamstring injury that knocked him out of the Allstate BCS National Championship more than two weeks ago.

The 5-foot-10 Birmingham, Ala., native was a second-team All-SEC selection by league coaches and is considered a top-30 wide receiver in the upcoming NFL draft in April. Maze said he hopes to be healthy enough to attend the NFL combine which starts on Feb. 22.
