That was a football related injury.

Taylor Jacobs being picked in the second round may have as a surprise to some, but here is a pre-draft evaluation of the the WR's in Jacobs class from NFLexperts.com (http://nfldraft.scout.com/2/70783.html)

It says,
"The expectations for Jacobs may not be that great; there could be as many as four underclassmen drafted before his name is called with the slight possibility of one upperclassmen, Lee Evans, being taken for him. In the end it could all work in Jacobs favor as he may slip through the cracks into the second frame (round) next April then turn into a "diamond in the rough" or a "bargain" and "value" pick that immediately starts at the next level, has a productive rookie campaign then goes on to a very solid career in the NFL. All photos in this story courtesy of Getty Images.

needless to say he has not had a good NFL career yet.

I can not find the pre-draft report I read years ago that mentioned Taylor Jacobs was a below average run blocker and called into question his toughness. I guess because it was several years ago.

Didn't follow his college career, but when he was hurt I remember him saying he never was hurt in his life playing football perhaps he meant seriously, I will take your word on the sprain.

As for him slipping in the draft, from what I heard it was because people were questioning whether or not he was a product of the florida system, to many florida WR's have been bust's so it scared team's off.

Sounds similar to a lot of Michigan WRs...

......Curtis Enis..........Blair Thomas........the list goes on and on.

I gotta say though I love how my boy L.J. looked last year when Priest went down on injury. There's still hope to break the curse (and Franco Harris was good enough to make up for a bunch of busts).
