The Arizona Wildcats have lost not one, but two linebackers to concussions.
“They are no longer playing because of concussions,” Rodriguez told reporters. “They have had multiple concussions, so at the advice of their doctors, their football career is over.”
The good news is that both players are expected to remain on scholarship at Arizona while they finish their degrees. Which, in my opinion, is the right thing to do and I applaud Arizona for doing so.
Both Conwell and Dozier have some special meaning to Rich Rodriguez, as they were the first two players to commit to Arizona after Rodriguez took over as coach. Both players were expected to play this season after playing as true freshmen in 2012.
