Baltimore Ravens linebacker Jaylon Ferguson died at just 26 years old of an accidental overdose, according to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Maryland. An autopsy revealed that the death resulted from the combination of fentanyl and cocaine, the Medical Examiner said.

Ferguson was found unresponsive in his Baltimore home on June 21 st. He was pronounced dead at the scene by attending medics, according to police.

In a statement, the Ravens said: “Our priority is focused on the man Jaylon was and the positive impact he made on so many as a father, son, fiancé, friend and teammate. It would be inappropriate for us to comment further while we continue to support his family and teammates, who are mourning the tragic loss of a loved one and will celebrate his life tomorrow.”

Ferguson’s family called his death, “one of the darkest moments in our lives” and asked for privacy.
