Former NFL wide receiver Mike Williams has died at the age of 36, from injuries sustained in a tragic accident at a construction site.

The Syracuse college star, who played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Buffalo Bills and Kansas City Chiefs over five years in the NFL, took a break from his playing career in 2016.

He earned a total of $11,848,250 during his time in the NFL, mostly with the Chiefs, who drafted him in the fourth round in 2010 and awarded him a four-year contract.

It was reported that Williams had been working on a construction site in recent weeks, where he had a fatal accident.

His death was first reported by Buffalo Bills reporter John Scott, who confirmed the news with multiple sources.

More details were revealed on the GoFundMe page, which Williams’ father, Wendell Muhammad, was allegedly set up.

The page – which was originally created before his death in an effort to help Williams’ father travel to the hospital in Tampa, Florida – alleges that a steel beam fell on his head, causing a serious head injury.

Williams’ father explains that the former NFL star suffers from swelling in his brain and spinal cord, in addition to complete paralysis in his right arm and below the waist.

The publication continues by indicating that he lost consciousness on the first of last September after suffering from breathing difficulties due to the accident, before doctors discovered the presence of water in his lungs and then put him in an artificial coma on the third of September.

Williams’ father said in the post that doctors were scheduled to try to wake him up on September 6, but it has since been reported that he died of his injuries.

Prior to his professional football career, Williams was a star in the college game with Syracuse, where he played for three seasons.

In his NFL career, he made 223 receptions, scored 26 touchdowns with 3,089 receiving yards.
