Notre Dame's Danny Spond had migraines

Notre Dame linebacker Danny Spond's career came to a premature end because of hemiplegic migraines, the senior said Monday in a statement through the school.

"My football playing career is over after suffering another paralyzing migraine early in fall camp," Spond said. "I've received the best medical treatment and guidance possible. Unfortunately, an exact cause of these migraines remains undetermined, and in order to assure my overall well-being, I'm forced to walk away from the game with an extremely heavy heart."
