Found April 17, 2013 on Pro Football Zone:
According to the Charlotte Observer, former Panthers’ quarterback Jeff Lewis passed away back in January of an apparent accidental drug overdose.The autopsy found morphine and zolpidem, a sedative and sleep aid more commonly known as Ambien, in Lewis’ blood.Medication containers and handwritten documents found in Lewis’ Phoenix home indicated a possible history of prescription medication abuse, including zolpidem and the painkiller hydrocodone, Maricopa County medical examiner Kevin Horn wrote in his report.Lewis was found unresponsive in his bed on Jan. 5 and was pronounced dead at the scene. He was 39, and would have turned 40 on Wednesday.Horn concluded that Lewis “died as a result of mixed drug (morphine and zolpidem) intoxication,” and cited cardiovascular and obesity as contributing factors.Our prayers certainly go out to Lewis’ family.  The sad thing is that a lot of former football players end up addicted to pain-killers once their careers are over. Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = 'http://widget.crowdignite.com/widgets/27484?_ci_wid=_CI_widget_'+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })();
