Lotulelei gets full medical clearance

On the heels of a declaration from Utah team physician David Petron that defensive tackle Star Lotlulelei’s heart shows “no evidence of dysfunction” and that the muscle performed “consistently with that of highly trained athletes,” Dr. Josef Stehlik has given Lotulelei full clearance to “participate in professional athletics without restrictions.”

Stehlik concludes that the abnormality that prompted Lotulelei to be sent home from the Scouting Combine without working out “was likely transient, possibly resulting from a viral infection.”

The release from Dr. Stehlik, a copy of which PFT has obtained, will be given to all teams, along with copies of the tests he has taken.

Though that’s encouraging for Lotulelei, doctors surely took another close look at the player when he returned over the weekend to Indy for the customary medical re-check performed on any players with red flags.

    Good. I really, really hope he’s there at #14. Chances of that are slim to none though.

    He’ll be out of the league in two years.

    i hope bills take him. i say he will play for about 3 seasons.

  6. norseyapper says: Apr 2, 2013 5:46 PM

    Good for him. He looks like a great young talent and a top 5 type of a pick.

    Wait a minute. Isn’t that Manti Teo’s girlfriend?

    This kid is pretty special. I hope he really is healthy. It would be pretty sad to see a guy play hard his entire life and work his but off only to reach the pinnacle of competitive sports…and then not be able to play. I hope he is a real star….but I sure hope Oaktown goes with Floyd. I’m with everyone else. I just find it too hard to believe….and that’s a shame for him. Tough break.

    Any Raiders fan saying they’re happy with this deal is lying. It’s a joke.

    YA.. were mad not because of this trade… it was the one where we paid a 1 & a 2 for cp3….

    well here is hoping either he is there at #3 or floyd, if not we will just take lockel

  12. tdubdizzle says: Apr 2, 2013 6:48 PM

    Oooooh Weeee! If the Raiders can get him at number 3 there Defense will have a solid anchor for the next ten years +. Make it happen Reggie!

  13. JMClarkent says: Apr 2, 2013 7:04 PM

    Agreed! Happy to see CP3 (and his salary) leave, sad to have paid for him. …and Jamarcus. …and DHB…and Seymour.

    If he is 100% healthy he is the best pick for the Eagles. Has to be doubled teamed on every snap. Ate alive the USC center who is considered one of, if not the best center in the nation.

  15. cmdrsmooth says: Apr 2, 2013 7:21 PM

    Best player in the draft.
