AUSTIN, Texas — Texas junior safety Nolan Brewster is quitting football because of concussions and post-traumatic migraine headaches.
Brewster has a history of concussions and migraines dating back to high school. He suffered a severe concussion in No. 17 Texas’ win against UCLA on Sept. 17.
Brewster had played in all three games this season for the Longhorns (3-0) at safety and on special teams. Athletic trainer Kenny Boyd says recent tests prompted officials to advise Brewster not to play any more.
Brewster is the son of former Minnesota head coach and Longhorns assistant Tim Brewster.
Last season, former Longhorns running back Tre’ Newton gave up football because of recurring concussions.
FSU’s Reid arrested on perjury charge
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Florida State cornerback and return specialist Greg Reid is in trouble again — this time with the police.
Reid was arrested at 2:30 a.m. ET Monday by Tallahassee police on charges of resisting arrest and perjury. The police report indicated Reid was trying to protect a friend from his hometown of Valdosta, Ga., who was being pursued for resisting arrest after being stopped earlier by police.
School officials did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
Reid didn’t play in Saturday’s 35-30 loss at Clemson and was suspended the second game of the season for violating an unspecified team rule. Reid sat out the Clemson game with a bruised right knee he suffered in the 23-13 loss to Oklahoma on Sept. 17.
The 21-year-old led the nation in punt returns two years ago as a freshman.
Washington loses DE Jamora to knee injury
SEATTLE — Washington sophomore defensive end Hau’oli Jamora will miss the rest of the 2011 season after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his knee.
The Huskies announced the diagnosis on Monday morning. Jamora was injured early in Washington’s 31-23 win against California on Saturday.
It’s a big blow to the Huskies defense. Jamora had emerged as Washington’s best pass rushing threat off the end and is tied for fifth on the team with 15 tackles. He also had three tackles for loss and one sack through four games.
Jamora was replaced in the lineup on Saturday by a rotation of ends that included freshmen Josh Shirley and Andrew Hudson.
