It’s been a tough week for the Bills family. Just days after losing former special teams coordinator Bruce DeHaven, a former Bills player has passed.

Keion Carpenter, a former Bills safety, collapsed while he was out for a run after suffering a brain aneurysm. It happened while on vacation with family. He was rushed to a nearby hospital, but fell into a coma. A family spokesperson confirmed Carpenter’s passing Thursday morning.

Carpenter was an undrafted signing of the Bills in 1999 out of Virginia Tech. He made the 53-man roster and played for three seasons in Buffalo. He had a career-high five interceptions in 2000 with Buffalo. He later played three more seasons with Atlanta.

Carpenter was just 39-years old.
