UPDATE: The Senior Bowl confirmed via Twitter that McClain will replace Paea. It also was announced that Abilene Christian WR Edmund Gates, whom Bengals.com reported aggravated a hamstring injury, will be replaced by West Virginia WR/RB Jock Sanders.

MOBILE, Ala. — Oregon State’s Stephen Paea will miss the rest of the Under Armour Senior Bowl with a knee injury, a source said Tuesday, and will be replaced by South Florida’s Terrell McClain.

Paea is one of the better defensive tackle prospects in this year’s draft class and was one of the top defensive linemen participating in the Senior Bowl.

During an exceptional senior season with the Beavers, Paea recorded 45 tackles, six sacks and four forced fumbles.
