Wednesday morning brought some tragic news as it was announced that Baltimore Ravens linebacker Jaylon Ferguson passed away on Tuesday night. The cause of death is currently unknown, but a police spokeswoman offered some insight into the situation.

A police spokeswoman called the death of Ravens linebacker Jaylon Ferguson “questionable,” but said there were no signs of foul play or trauma to his body. Additional information was not immediately available and the death investigation has been referred to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner.

“I can say that we are not ruling anything out,” Baltimore police spokesperson Lindsey Eldridge. “We don’t determine cause of death, but we consider the possibility that it could be an overdose.”

Ferguson’s friend who found him unresponsive did tell police that the 26-year-old was “Xanied up,” referring to the prescription drug Xanax. There is a chance that the drug was potentially involved in his death, but nothing is yet confirmed.

A Ravens third-round pick in 2019, Ferguson played 38 games across three seasons with Baltimore, collecting 67 total tackles and 4.5 sacks. Rest in peace to Jaylon Ferguson and prayers to his family in this tough time.
