IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) -Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz said Tuesday that lineman Alex Kanellis' career is over because of headaches that have plagued him since he had a concussion last spring.
Kanellis' concussion in spring practice led to migraine headaches. The issue flared up in fall camp, Ferentz said, and after consulting with specialists, the junior has decided to stop playing.
``He's been through a gauntlet of people who have examined him,'' Ferentz said. ``He's pretty much at ease with his decision.''
Kanellis, a native of Iowa City, was the state's Gatorade player of the year in 2004. He had 28 tackles in two seasons at Iowa.
Kanellis moved from defensive line to offensive line during spring practice this year.
