Ex-Gators Star Neiron Ball Dies at 27 After Battle with Rare Brain Condition

A former National Football League player has died almost a year after being placed in a medically induced coma following a brain aneurysm.

Former Oakland Raiders and Florida Gators linebacker Neiron Ball died at 27 after battling a rare brain condition. It reportedly affects less than 1% of the population. "He sticks out his tongue", his sister, Natalie Myricks, told Fox 5 in Atlanta in July.

"We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of Neiron Ball on September 10, 2019 at 4:15 am", she wrote.

". Neiron was a loving and cherished father, brother, and teammate. Neiron has transitioned to a place of peace".

"We join the Ball family in thanking the numerous supporters of Neiron and his journey to recovery", the agency said in their statement.

Added the Sports & Entertainment Group: "Neiron was a rare and special spirit with the ability to touch anyone he met".

"His talent was met with relentless drive, no matter the obstacle", the statement read.

Ball was then drafted in the fifth round (161st overall) by the Raiders in 2015.

The Florida Gators football program and loved ones are mourning the loss of linebacker Neiron Ball. "He will be missed dearly".

The Raiders also acknowledged Ball's passing.

Ball, whose nickname was "Weezy", was mourned on Twitter by several of his former college and pro teammates.

He forever will be missed by the entire Raider Nation. Before his sophomore year, doctors discovered a brain bleed and he had emergency surgery, causing him to miss the 2011 season. He played one season for Oakland and recorded five tackles including one sack in six games (two starts).

Ball was placed in a medically induced coma after suffering an aneurysm a year ago, according to an ESPN report, which noted that he was being kept at a nursing facility when he passed away.

According to ESPN, he was later transferred to a nursing facility, where he died yesterday.
