Saying "it would be dangerous for me to be out there," West Virginia quarterback Clint Trickett announced on Friday that he will sit out of Monday's Liberty Bowl against Texas A&M because of concussions.

The senior was knocked out in a 26-20 loss to Kansas State in November, The Associated Press reports, and he had not played since. Trickett said on Friday that he has sustained five concussions over the last 14 months, and he indicated that West Virginia's medical staff was not immediately made aware of all of the injuries.
