Shorter out for Newton

RB Kevin Shorter suffered a serious injury in a kick-off return against East Chambers on Friday and is most likely out for the rest of the season.  At first Shorter thought he had suffered a mild concussion, but started to experience numbness in both arms.  He was taken to a Houston Hospital and was diagnosed with a bruised spinal cord and pinched nerves in both arms.  Shorter, who pledged to sign with the University of Texas Longhorns, is expected to be hospitalized for up to a week.
