EVANSTON, Ill. (AP) Northwestern cornerback Dwight White has decided to stop playing football.
White tells the Chicago Tribune he found out in June after experiencing abdominal pain that he was born with one kidney. He decided to keep playing. But after suffering a kidney contusion in practice in the final days before the season opener, he ultimately opted to stop.
White appeared in all 12 games and made six starts as a freshman last season. He did not appear in any games this year.
