MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -A moment of silence was held to honor Memphis defensive lineman Taylor Bradford before Tuesday night's game between the Tigers and Marshall.
Instead of the normal bouncing and running entrance from the locker room before the game, Memphis walked slowly out of the tunnel arm-and-arm in rows of five players each.
Bradford, a junior from Nashville, died after a shooting at a residential complex on the Memphis campus about 9:45 p.m. Sunday. He drove a short distance before his car crashed into a tree. Emergency workers answering the wreck call, discovered Bradford was shot. He died later at a Memphis hospital.
Memphis authorities continued to investigate the death Tuesday, and there were no suspects in custody.
Bradford, a 5-foot-11, 300-pounder who transferred from Samford University in Birmingham, was used primarily on the scout team. He had not seen action in a game this season.
Memphis players wore round black stickers with TB on the back of their helmets to recognize their teammate. Fans were given stickers with the lineman's number 93.
