Stanford QB Josh Nunes forced to retire after ‘freak injury’

Stanford quarterback Josh Nunes was forced to retire from football Monday after previously suffering what coach David Shaw called a “freak injury” that kept him out of spring practices.

Shaw said Nunes hurt himself during a workout in February before spring practices began. The school didn’t go into the details of what happened, but the AP’s Antonio Gonzalez is here to fill in the blanks. If you have a weak stomach, maybe you should stop reading.

Absolutely horrifying.

Nunes, as you may remember, began last season as the heir apparent at Stanford to Andrew Luck. He was the starter for nine games before he was replaced by Kevin Hogan. Nunes finished the season with 1,643 yards passing, 10 touchdowns, seven interceptions and a 52.8 completion percentage. Before the injury occurred, he was on track to be Hogan’s understudy again this season as a senior. He is expected to be fully recovered in February.
