A 25-year-old Tennessee Titan football player is dead today, from what police believe is a self inflicted gunshot wound. O.J. Murdock, a reserve receiver for the team, was found in his car Monday morning with a self-inflicted wound to the chest. He was taken to a local hospital and died at 10:43 a.m.
The NFLer signed with the Titans in 2011 but was benched due to an injury.
“We are shocked and saddened to hear of O.J. Murdock’s death this morning,” said the Tennessee Titans in a statement. “In his brief time here, a number of our players, coaches and staff had grown close to O.J., and this is a difficult time for them. He spent the last year battling back from an Achilles injury as he prepared for this year’s training camp. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends as they try to cope with this tragedy.”
