The exhale being heard from LaGrange, Ohio all through the Big Blue Nation and up through the front offices of NFL teams in need of a tight end is very understandable.

A few minutes ago former UK tight end CJ Conrad’s tweet was the reason for so much tension being eased.


After a great career at Kentucky, Conrad was all set to join his brothers at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis when he received news that stopped all of that in its tracks.

As the news of Conrad’s heart issue spread, everyone who is close to him, watched him play or even knows him a little no doubt felt their hearts sink and ache for him. It was especially disappointing to CJ whose future suddenly hung in the balance with the prospect of having the game he loves ripped away. Now that he’s back you know he’s fixing to get right to work.

And just for the heck of it, let’s revisit his game winner at Missouri one more time.


Glad to hear that the news on CJ’s health is good. Now we can all hope he gets the ball thrown his way a ton at the next level.
