Jayhawks' Shelley-Smith retires due to concussions

BY foxsports • October 4, 2016

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) Kansas offensive lineman Jordan Shelley-Smith has decided to retire from football due to repeated concussions, the second player in the Big 12 to make that decision this week.

The senior has played minimal snaps after sustaining a concussion in before the season began. He also missed three games last season after sustaining a concussion against Oklahoma State.

Oklahoma linebacker Tay Evans decided to retire on Monday. And just last year, Kansas linebacker Jake Love made the same decision after dealing with several concussions.
