Seferian-Jenkins was held out of athletic drills at the NFL scouting combine last weekend because he wasn’t medically cleared after doctors discovered a pre-existing injury. He opted for surgery to repair the injury after deliberating with his family and agents, according to CBS Sports.

Recovery time is expected to be eight weeks for Seferian-Jenkins. The NFL Draft is less than 10 weeks away, on May 8.

Seferian-Jenkins won the 2013 Mackey Award, given annually to the best tight end in the NCAA. He’s ranked third among tight ends and 45th overall on NFLDraftScout.com’s prospect list.

Despite the injury, Seferian-Jenkins showed up to the combine in good shape. He measured in at 6-foot-5 and 262 pounds, which is 14 pounds less than he was listed on the Huskies’ roster last season.
