rundown and young or sick?

Opinions on this 8.  Think he is a 3.5 with great potential.  He first showed up on cams here around the 13th and got this daylight sequence where he appears hunched in the last 2 pics and looks pretty thin.

He does looked hunched up, not sure he is posturing for an off cam buck?  Could be vehicle injury? or perhaps a buck got the best of him in a fight?......HOPEFULLY not CWD

No more pics of that one, and yeah no doubt hope he does not have cwd.

Here is the wide 8 I saw briefly the morning I shot my 8 pt back in December.  He was really heavy on the hoof earlier in the year, has dropped quite a bit especially in the neck.  Also appears to have a tumor/growth on his left above the shoulder into the neck.  We had had pics of him after season closed and I did not recall seeing the growth or it least it was not as noticeable on other pics.

This was him back in mid October.  Guessed he is probably a 4.5 year old, if he hangs around will be interesting to see how much he adds.
