NFL | Lucas Passes Away

Arena Football League DL Albert Lucas, a former member of the Carolina Panthers, passed away Sunday, Apr. 10, at the age of 26, after suffering a presumed spinal cord injury while trying to make a tackle. Lucas, playing in a game for the Los Angeles Avengers against the New York Dragons, was taken to California Hospital after being injured during a first-quarter kickoff return. After Lucas bent down to make a tackle, the Dragons' ball carrier and a blocker tumbled over his head and back, with the blocker's leg appearing to hit Lucas in the head. Lucas did not move after falling to the ground, and attempts to revive him were unsuccessful, according to the Associated Press. KFFL sends our condolences to friends and relatives.
