Former Baltimore Ravens fullback Lorenzo Taliaferro died Wednesday night at the age of 28, according to John Harvey III of the Charlottesville Daily Progress.

Via Bruce Cunningham of WBFF-TV, York County Police Department (Va.) confirmed the death from Taliaferro with a family member who says he has had a heart attack.

Taliaferro was a fourth round of the Ravens in 2014 from Coastal Carolina. He spent three seasons with the Ravens, playing in 19 games during that period. As a rookie, he rushed for 292 yards and four touchdowns for the team as they moved forward without running Ray Rice back after his domestic violence suspension. He was second on the team in hasty scores for the season behind Justin Forsett.

Taliaferro was the 138th overall choice of the concept in 2014 after a notable college career. He rushed for 1,729 yards with 27 touchdowns during his senior season.

Taliaferro spent time with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats of the Canadian Football League during the 2018 season.

Taliaferro would have turned 29 next Wednesday.
