Neck injury ends career of Arkansas RB Williams
(TSX / STATS) -- Arkansas running back Rawleigh Williams III, who rushed for 1,360 yards and 12 touchdowns last season, announced Monday he is giving up football after suffering a second neck injury.
Williams' latest neck injury came during the Razorbacks' final spring scrimmage last month. He was carted off the field and taken to the hospital.
Williams, who would have been a junior this season, wrote a heartfelt letter on Arkansas' official website that was titled "Next Chapter."
