Malone’s son pulls plug on NFL career

AFPNEW YORK (AFP-Jiji) — K.J. Malone, the son of NBA legend Karl Malone, gave up on an NFL career Monday, calling it quits over knee injury issues after training with the Houston Texans.

The younger Malone, a standout college offensive lineman at Louisiana State University who turned 23 last week, was not taken in the NFL Draft but signed with the Texans last month.

After attending last weekend’s Texans’ mini-camp, Malone announced on his Twitter account that he was giving up on his NFL dream, citing lingering effects from a knee injury that sidelined him for six games last season.
