The Stanford football program has announced that quarterback Josh Nunes has decided to retire from football due to an injury suffered in a weight-lifting workout.

Nunes suffered an injury to his right biceps muscle in January, according to the San Jose Mercury News, and missed all of Spring Practice.

The redshirt sophomore played in 10 games in 2012, throwing for 1,643 yards, 10 touchdowns and seven interceptions before being replaced by Kevin Hogan.

Hogan will likely be the starter in 2013 with Evan Crower serving as his back-up.
