MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - Louisville quarterback Brian Brohm, Notre Dame tight end John Carlson and Auburn defensive end Quentin Groves have withdrawn from the Senior Bowl due to injury or illness.
Tennessee quarterback Erik Ainge and Auburn tight end Cole Bennett were added to the South roster for Saturday's game, an audition for top senior NFL prospects.
Senior Bowl President Steve Hale said Brohm was unable to recuperate in time from a leg injury sustained in the Rutgers game.
Hale said Carlson had a recent stomach ailment that caused him to lose 17 pounds in eight days.
To fill the vacancy created by Carlson's loss, Missouri tight end Martin Rucker moved from the South team to the North team, and Auburn's Cole Bennett was named to the South team.
Hale said Groves won't participate because of a shoulder injury.
