Luke Falk cleared to play in Senior Bowl

New, 2 comments
NCAA Football: Stanford at Washington State James Snook-USA TODAY Sports

The last time we saw Luke Falk, he was roaming the sideline at the Holiday Bowl, unable to play due to a bum non-throwing wrist. It was a major bummer seeing WSU’s record-setting quarterback unable to play his final game, and on his birthday no less.

But Falk will play in the Reese’s Senior Bowl on Jan. 27 in Mobile Alabama. This is one of the more prestigious all-star games for NFL hopefuls, so it’s good that Falk will be able to play.

As you may recall, Falk reportedly broke his non-throwing wrist during the Boise State game and wore a glove on his left hand the rest of the season. After the Apple Cup, the injury required surgery and Falk was careful not to reveal anything in public during Holiday Bowl festivities.

Other quarterbacks at the Senior Bowl include Baker Mayfield, Josh Allen and Mason Rudolph.

These all-star games often have modified rules and playing time is limited, particularly for quarterbacks, so the time spent in practice in front of NFL scouts is often more important than the actual game itself.

Right tackle Cole Madison will also play in the Senior Bowl.

It wasn’t clear if Falk, who missed the Holiday Bowl against Michigan State because of his injury, would heal in time to partake in the Jan. 27 game, or any of the pre-Senior Bowl practices that give collegiate seniors an opportunity to showcase their skills in front of NFL scouts and draft analysts.
