Texas RB Tre' Newton Giving Up Football

Over the last two seasons, Longhorn running Tre' Newton has struggled with injuries, including a hip pointer this season. A bigger concern, however, has been his struggles with concussions.

Influenced by all the recent news about the long-term dangers of head injuries incurred from playing football, Newton will no longer continue playing football at Texas. It was a decision that was made despite Newton still having the desire to play -- this was a medical decision. Newton will remain on scholarship and involved with the football team as a mentor to the young running backs.

Mack Brown said at his Monday press conference that Cody Johnson will probably start against Florida Atlantic with Fozzy Whittaker continuing to struggle with a re-occuring stinger.
