According to Breitbart, Frank Wychek, a former Tennessee Titans tight end known as the "Music City Miracle," passed away at age 52 on Saturday.

The family confirmed the legend's passing in a statement.

The circumstances surrounding his unfortunate passing were also revealed. The former player reportedly fell in his home and was later found unresponsive.

"At this time, it appears Frank Wycheck fell inside his Chattanooga, TN home and hit his head on Saturday morning," said a statement posted on

"He was found unresponsive that afternoon. Wycheck moved to Chattanooga, TN, this past summer to be closer to his family. He leaves behind two adult daughters, Deanna and Madison, both married, and three grandchildren – Leo, Stevie, and August," the statement added.
