Neck injury forces UConn safety to retire

Spring practices will get underway in Storrs, Connecticut on Monday. The start of a new season technically begins at this time. Sadly, this year’s spring practices will mark the official end of one player’s career. A neck injury suffered last season will force three-year starting safety Ty-Meer Brown.

Brown appeared in seven games last season before suffering a neck injury following a head-to-head collision in a practice last fall. He had established himself as one fo the top tacklers on the team with 51 total tackles (31 solo) in his seven games, which was two more than the 49 he recorded in 12 game sin 2012. He ended the year as UConn’s sixth-leading tackler for the 2013 season.

According to John Silver of SNY, Brown remains on scholarship and will be a part of the football program. He will not count against UConn’s 85-scholarship limit either.

    An injury suffered last year will force three-year starting safety…to do what? Lol.

    Clearly its forcing him to walk away from football, but that sentence makes no sense.

    Too bad. Hope he gets to finish his degree and that he can live a good healthy life.
