Defensive tackle Robert Windsor has decided to retire from playing football. Windsor played for James Franklin at Penn State from 2015 to 2019.

Windsor had 121 total tackles, 20 tackles for loss, and 14 sacks in his Penn State career. Windsor played in 52 games for the Nittany Lions. He would go on to get drafted by the Indianapolis Colts in the 6th round of the 2020 NFL Draft.

Shortly after being drafted, the Colts put Windsor on the practice squad in November of 2020, before activating him off of it a few days later. In Jan. of 2021, he was signed to a futures/ reserve contract. Then in July of 2021, he was placed on the IR/ Covid-19 list as it was announced he would miss the entire season with a hip injury.

Windsor posted about his choice to retire from the game of football on Wednesday from his Twitter account. Here is what Windsor had to say about his decision:

“9 months ago, I had 2 major surgeries-one on my hip and one on my groin,” said Windsor. “Both were extensive, and the recovery process has been an arduous one. I wish I still had more to give to the game that has given me so much, but sadly things don’t last forever and my time to retire has come. I am entering this next phase of life with gratitude and ready to start my journey to self-discovery and healing.”
