The Buffalo Bills kick off the NFL season tonight, and one player is showing up on the field after a recent family tragedy. Dawson Knox's brother Luke was confirmed dead to the public on August 18.

Since then, the team has shown massive support for their Tight End, and his little brother's college team, the FIU Panthers, has paid tribute, as well.

On August 19, Knox took to Twitter thanking people for their kind words and giving details about the service. He hasn't published much since then, but this week on September 4, he uploaded a heartbreaking Instagram photo of him and his sibling when they were kids.

"Luke is not lost, because we know exactly where he is. God’s got him, and I know I’ll be seeing him again one day.
Luke’s legacy will continue live on through all the lives he’s impacted in incredible ways. This isn’t a goodbye, it’s just a see you later. I love you Luke," the caption reads. He concluded with religious scripture.

He's continuing to stay focused on the NFL, as the Bills announced yesterday that they extended his contract to four years until 2026.

Ahead of the game tonight, Knox added to the hype making it his most recent retweet on Twitter.

"Couldn’t be more excited to call Buffalo home for the next several years," he wrote, " it's time to get this season rollin!!"

The New York team plays the Los Angeles Rams this evening at the SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, CA.
