Pennington To Take Year Off

Former Marshall quarterback and the oft injured Chad Pennington is trading in his helmet for a headset, at least for the upcoming NFL season. 
The Charleston Daily Mail is reporting Pennington plans to take the year off from football and work for Fox Sports while he lets his body continue to heal from an ACL tear and shoulder surgery.
"I’m going to evaluate things and see where I am physically,” Pennington told the Daily Mail. 
Pennington has spent much of his career dealing with injuries, including four shoulder surgeries, a broken wrist, ankle sprain and now the torn ACL.  He’s the only player to win the “NFL Comeback Player of the Year Award” twice, in 2006 and 2008. Ironically, those are the only two full season Pennington has completed injury free in his 11 year career.
