Auburn offensive tackle Brandon Mosley has been forced to remove himself from the Senior Bowl this week because of an illness.

Mosley spent the weekend in the hospital, according to his agent Brian Ayrault, and he was released this morning. He has a case of viral meningitis and it is expected to resolve itself in the next 7 to 10 days.

A second-team All-SEC selection this past season, the 6-6, 305-pound Mosley is projected as a mid-round draft pick and could go as early as the top of the third round.
