John Urschel: Announces retirement at age 26
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urschel announced Thursday that he would retire from professional football, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.

The 26-year-old reportedly informed Ravens coach John Harbaugh of his intentions Friday morning, hours before the first full-team practice of training camp. Urschel, who had been in line to compete for starting duties at center, didn't release a statement on why he was stepping away from the game, but Hensley noted that his decision may have been motivated by a medical study released two days ago that found 99 percent of deceased NFL players' brains had shown signs of chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), a condition linked to repeated brain trauma. Urschel, who had previously suffered a concussion in August 2015 that knocked him unconscious, is expected to turn his focus from the gridiron to the field of mathematics; he had been pursing a doctorate degree at Massachusetts Institute of Technology during the offseason.
