Dolphins | Jamar Taylor on road to recovery
Tue, 30 Apr 2013 20:56:18 -0700

Miami Dolphins CB Jamar Taylor (kidneys) had medical tests at the NFL Scouting Combine which turned up a worrisome red flag.

According to a source, Taylor has had high blood pressure since high school, and he was placed on medication that has serious side effects for some, especially black males. The medication damaged Taylor's kidneys, and anti-inflammatories made it worse. When tested at the combine in February, his kidneys were functioning at 42 percent efficiency, alarming Taylor and NFL teams. The blood pressure medication was found to be the culprit, and he has no pre-existing kidney condition. He was placed on new blood pressure meds and told not to take anti-inflammatories. While his kidneys were left with scar tissue, doctors expect their operating efficiency to improve. While the condition was explained teams, several picking between 25 and 45 of the 2013 NFL Draft voiced their concern and decided to pass, thus Taylor landing with the Dolphins.
