                  === Stanford QB Nunes medically retires ===
 
 Stanford,   CA  (Sports  Network)  -  Stanford  quarterback  Josh  Nunes,  who
 started  the  first nine games for  the Cardinal this past season, is retiring
 from football due to medical reasons, the school announced on Monday.
 
 In  his first  year as the starter  under center, Nunes passed for 1,643 yards
 with 10 touchdowns. He played sparingly in the second half of the 2012 season,
 though,  as sophomore  Kevin Hogan started and won five games for the Cardinal
 that included a Rose Bowl victory over Wisconsin.
 
 Specific reasoning for the medical retirement was not explained, but Nunes did
 suffer  an  arm injury during  offseason workouts that  forced him to miss the
 team's spring practices.
