The details from Junior Seau's full autopsy

The details from Junior Seau's full autopsy

From Comcast SportsNet
SAN DIEGO (AP) -- No alcohol or illegal drugs were found in Junior Seau's system when he shot and killed himself at his home in May, authorities said Monday. The full autopsy results were released by the San Diego County medical examiner's office in a 16-page report for the former NFL linebacker who was found by his girlfriend with a single gunshot wound to his chest. Seau did have Zolpidem, often found in the sleeping aid Ambien, and traces of the anti-inflammatory drug naproxen in his system when he died that were "consistent with therapeutic use," wrote Deputy Medical Examiner Craig Nelson. The autopsy showed no underlying hemorrhaging or contusions on Seau's brain, which appeared to be normal. His family has donated some of his brain tissue for research amid questions about whether any damage from his 20-year football career played some factor in his suicide. Questions remain about why Seau, 43, decided to kill himself on May 2 at his suburban Oceanside home. No suicide note was found, according to the autopsy report, and family and friends said Seau didn't appear distraught or depressed. Investigators said the gun Seau used to kill himself was an unregistered .357-caliber revolver that had five hollow-point bullets inside. They also found his cellphone lying on his bed. The phone had its memory chip missing.

Dumervil won’t play against Jaguars, missing third straight game

Dumervil won’t play against Jaguars, missing third straight game

JACKSONVILLE – Ravens outside linebacker Elvis Dumervil will miss his third consecutive game, after being declared inactive for Week 3 against the Jaguars. Dumervil had hoped to make his 2016 debut after offseason foot surgery, and he practiced both Wednesday and Thursday. However, Dumervil did not practice Friday, the first warning sign that he might not be ready to suit up. It remains to be seen how long Dumervil will continue to be out, but his continued absence is not something the Ravens were hoping for.

Joining Dumervil on the Ravens inactive list Sunday were running backs Kenneth Dixon and Buck Allen, cornerbacks Will Davis and Jerraud Powers, defensive tackle Willie Henry, and offensive lineman John Urschel.

For the Jaguars, running back Chris Ivory was active Sunday after missing the first two games with an undisclosed illness. The presence of Ivory should give a lift to the Jaguars’ rushing attack. Ivory is a physical runner who excels at yards after contact. The Ravens’ run defense will be put to the test if Ivory is healthy enough to carry his usual workload.
