His brother Dawson plays for the Buffalo Bills.
Florida International University's Linebacker, Luke Knox, has passed away suddenly at 22 years old. His brother, Dawson Knox, a Tight End with the Buffalo Bills, and many football stars have expressed their condolences for his passing.
Bills' coach, Sean McDermott, along with the Knox brothers' former Ole Miss coach, Lane Kiffin, have both shared words with the public about Luke's death.
McDermott said in a press conference that he woke up to the news this morning and, out of respect for the family, he "would not get into details." But went on to note that he was doing everything he can to support his player during this time of need.
Coach Kiffin posted his own response to Twitter.
"I am grateful for my personal relationship and time spent with Luke. He was a tremendous teammate and an even better person who lifted up everyone around him," he wrote, tagging the Ole Miss and FIU team accounts.
