Indianapolis Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson was killed early Sunday morning near the city of Indianapolis after being hit by a suspected drunk driver, according to Justin L. Mack and Emma Kate Fittes of the Indianapolis Star.
Jackson, 26, and another man, effrey Monroe (54) who had stopped to help Jackson, were killed while standing on the shoulder of Interstate 70 by a pickup truck that had driven into the emergency shoulder.
The truck tookoff after the incident but was later apprehended. The driver is suspected to have driven intoxicated.
Jackson was an undrafted free agent out of Georgis Southern who entered the league back in 2015.
Jackson was briefly with the Arizona Cardinals before spending time on the Colts’ practice squad.
In 2016, Jackson played in all 16 games, starting 8, and tallied 42 tackles along with 4 sacks.
Jackson spent 2017 on injured reserve. Jackson had a reputation for being a nice person who devoted time to service within the community.

Jaguars’ Gardner Minshew Takes Starting Job
The Jacksonville Jaguars are moving on from quarterback Nick Foles and going to rookie quarterback Gardner Minshew for the rest of the season, according to an official team announcement on Monday.
Minshew initially took the starting gig when Foles suffered a broken collarbone earlier in the season, but Foles’ recent return resulted in blowout losses and clear struggles to be productive, leading the Jags to go back to Minshew.
Foles inked a four-year, $88 million deal with the Jags during the offseason, including $50 million guaranteed, but the Jags may already be looking to move on from Foles this offseason.
