One year after winning the starting quarterback job at Stanford, Josh Nunes' football career is over.

The Cardinal announced Monday that Nunes will take a medical retirement and wrap his career with the program.

The decision most likely resulted from a bicep injury Nunes suffered in the weight room after the season, which kept him out of spring practice.
