After hurting his shoulder in an October 20th game vs. Nevada, UH linebacker Jahlani Tavai was not able to compete in this weekend's NFL combine testing still recovering from an early November surgery. 

This was the report and write up from NFL network analyst Tom Pelissero about Tavai's situation: 

"An unfortunate development for Tavai, who has upside toward Round 2 but may well end up taking a little slide come April. He is working his way back from October shoulder surgery. It already cost him the Senior Bowl. Now the combine and pro day. Sitting out the combine is one thing, but being unable to workout for either the combine or pro day sets the 6-foot-4, 235-pound linebacker significantly behind the eight-ball. He'll still have the opportunity to work out privately with interested pro squads, but even that possibility is now up in the air given that Tavai still has much apparent work to do on the rehab front. Per Pelissero, the linebacker is hopeful to be able to show off for the NFL in April. He'll at least be able to go through medical checks and interviews in Indianapolis, but this is a killer development regardless."
