An autopsy has revealed the cause of death by Baltimore Ravens linebacker Jaylon Ferguson.
A spokesperson for the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore, Maryland stated Ferguson died from the combined effects of fentanyl and cocaine.
The death was ruled an accident.
Last month, Ferguson was found unresponsive at a Baltimore residence and never regained consciousness. He was pronounced dead by medics on the scene.
Police said they found no signs of trauma or foul play.
In a statement Friday morning, the Baltimore 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 funeral will take place Saturday in his native Louisiana at the Magnolia Full Gospel Baptist Church.
The 26-year-old, known as “Sack Daddy,” was a third-round draft pick in 2019.
