Wisconsin senior tight end Zander Neuville has decided to end his football career. He tweeted the news this afternoon:
"Unfortunately, I have sustained another injury, one that means an end to my football career. While this is disappointing, I am extremely grateful for the opportunity I had this year and throughout my time at Wisconsin." He had been rehabbing a leg injury.
Neuvile suffered two season-ending injuries in his first five seasons with the Badgers. The NCAA granted him a waiver for a sixth year of eligibility in August.
Neuville played in 42 games at Wisconsin. He caught ten passes for 84 yards and two touchdowns.
The Waupaca native plans to attend medical school next fall.
