The brother of Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith has been killed in a motorcycle accident.
Ravens officials say 19-year-old Tevin Chris Jones died in Virginia on Saturday night.
Smith posted on his Twitter account: "I can't believe my little brother is gone...be thankful for your loved ones and tell them you love them...this is the hardest thing ever."
It was unclear whether Smith would play Sunday night for the Ravens against the New England Patriots. A Ravens spokesman says the team will leave that decision up to Smith.
If Smith does not suit up, he will be replaced by Jacoby Jones.
Now in his second season with Baltimore, Smith grew up in Virginia before attending the University of Maryland.
