Zurlon Tipton, a former Colts RB, died after accidentally shooting himself at a car dealership. He was 26. es.pn/291m6j2

Mike Wells ESPN Staff Writer 

Colts long snapper Matt Overton on Zurlon Tipton, who died after he accidentally shot himself Tuesday: "Zurlon was a dude you rooted for. An undrafted, talented, hard-working player who always seemed to have a smile on his face. His personality was contagious. In 2014 he finally got promoted to the active roster and he was a key contributor on the 4th Down Army (special teams) and a tough back up running back. He was the hammer when on the field. He will always be our brother, he is family. Today is a tough day for many. Prayers go out to his family during this difficult time."
