Cornerback Daniel Jones will retire from the Northwestern football program but will stay at the school.

The senior suffered a season-ending left knee injury in the 2013 season opener at Cal and also missed games in 2012 due to an injury. Jones suffered another injury this spring.

Jones started at corner in 2012 and maintained his hold on the position opposite Nick VanHoose coming into 2013. Replaced by Matt Harris and Dwight White, Jones was battling to win his spot back in a competition with those two and others in the Northwestern secondary.

Harris now looks to be the favorite to start at corner heading into camp.
