Hearts are heavy around the NFL on Friday following the death of Baltimore Ravens cornerback Tray Walker.

Walker's death hit close to home for Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater. The two were teammates at Miami's Northwestern High School.

Walker died from injuries that he sustained in a dirt bike crash in Miami. Miami-Dade police indicate that he was riding a Honda dirt bike with no lights and wearing dark clothing when he collided with a Ford Escape on Thursday night.

Walker was listed in critical condition at a Miami Hospital on Thursday night, but the team confirmed Friday that he had.
