The midweek death of Ray Lewis III, son of Hall of Famer Ray Lewis, was due to an accidental overdose, according to multiple reports.
The younger Lewis died Wednesday at age 28. Medical examiners haven't determined the official cause of death.
Lewis' older brother Rahsaan wrote about the death Thursday on Instagram. TMZ Sports confirmed the death.
According to reports, the Casselberry (Fla.) Police Department was called to the Orlando-area home on Wednesday when Ray Lewis III was found unconscious in a bedroom.
Life-saving attempts weren't successful. Lewis was later declared dead at a nearby hospital.
"The evidence and witness accounts show this incident to be a tragic accident," police said in a statement.
Ray Lewis III played college football at Miami like his father. The younger Lewis was a running back in his home state of Florida and later played cornerback at Coastal Carolina and Division II Virginia Union.
"Great young man and a better teammate," Virginia Union associate head coach Diego Ryland told TMZ Sports on Thursday. "The entire Virginia Union University community is praying for the family as they deal with the loss of Ray."
The elder Lewis, now 48, starred for the Ravens from 1996-2012, winning NFL Defensive Player of the Year in 2000 and 2003 and Super Bowl titles in 2000 and 2012.
