​The NFL is suffering a loss Monday, mourning the passing of former star wide receiver Terry Glenn. 


Glenn died from injuries sustained in a car accident early Monday. News broke of his death Monday morning, with more details coming out throughout the day. 


As of the afternoon, it is being reported that Glenn struck a concrete barrier and was ejected from his vehicle on Interstate 114 in Irving, Texas. 

The accident occurred just after midnight Monday morning. Glenn, alongside his fiancee who was in the passenger seat, was taken to Parkland Memorial Hospital. His fiancee only sustained minor injuries, but Glenn passed away just before 1:00. He was 43. Absolutely awful to see two drastically different fates befall two people in the same circumstance, and a couple ripped apart.


Glenn may be best known for catching Tom Brady's first career touchdown pass, but Glenn spent 12 seasons in the NFL, including six in New England, five with the Cowboys and one with the Packers.

Glenn made the 1999 Pro Bowl while with the Patriots, and finished his career in 2006 with 8,823 yards and 44 touchdowns. 


An awful ending to the life of a universally-liked player, and definitely a set of clarifying details that are hard to swallow.
