Updating and earlier story, Adrian Robinson’s death has now been ruled a suicide by hanging the Philadelphia Medical Examiner’s Office late Monday.

He is survived by his daughter Avery Marie.

Temple Coach Matt Rhule released the following statement:

“The Temple football program lost a friend, a brother, and a wonderful young man today. Adrian Robinson was one of the greatest competitors I ever had the pleasure of coaching and I know he was an even better teammate. I first met Adrian as an 18-year-old high school senior. I was so proud to see him back at Temple this spring, finishing his degree and being a loving father to his new daughter.
He will always be a part of me and will always be a part of this program. Our hearts and thoughts go out to the Robinson family — his parents Terry and Adrian Sr., brother Averee and sister Aija, and his daughter Avery Marie.”

Robinson has become part of a disturbing trend of NFL players who have committed suicide, but left their brain intact. It is unclear at this point if Robinson suffered from CTE or if his brain will be used in CTE research.
