Former Browns and Ravens tackle Orlando Brown died last month at the age of 40. According to Andrea K. Walker of the Baltimore Sun, Brown suffered from diabetic ketoacidosis, a rarely fatal consequence of diabetes.
Maryland’s chief medical examiner, David Fowler, said that there was no evidence Brown was taking insulin or that he otherwise was even aware he had diabetes.
“He never talked about having diabetes, never,” former Ravens lineman Wally Williams said of Brown.
Brown’s funeral is scheduled for Friday.
