Former Buffalo Bills offensive lineman Kyle Calloway died on Saturday after being struck by a train in Arizona, according to the Cedar Rapids Gazette.

Calloway was jogging along the railroad tracks when he was struck by a train from behind, according to the police report.

“That was what he did for exercise,” Kyle’s father, Ed Calloway, told the Gazette. “He liked to run and it had rained the day before and the area where he ran was muddy, and so he was going back and forth across the tracks to get out of the mud.”

The Bills selected Calloway in the seventh round of the 2010 NFL draft out of Iowa. He played in three of Buffalo’s preseason games in 2010 before he was released. He signed with the Ravens in 2011, but never appeared in a regular-season game.

His parents will donate his brain to CTE research.
