The death of Baltimore Ravens linebacker Jaylon Ferguson has been ruled as a accident due to a combination of fentanyl and cocaine.  He was 26 years old.

The Ravens announced the death of Ferguson on June 22.

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.”

A funeral service will be held Saturday in St. Francisville, La. according to an Instagram post by Ferguson’s fiance Doni Smith.

Ferguson was a third-round draft pick in 2019 out of Louisiana Tech, where he was given the nickname “Sack Daddy”. Ferguson holds the FBS record for career sacks with 45.
