Former Jacksonville Jaguars offensive guard Uchechukwu “Uche” Nwaneri passed away back on Dec 30, 2022 after collapsing in his wife’s home. He was 38-years-old.

According to a report in the Lafayette Journal & Courrier, Nwaneri was at his wife’s home in West Lafayette, Indiana when she found him unresponsive in a bedroom at about 1 a.m.

The Journal & Courier, citing the Tippecanoe County Coroner, said preliminary results indicate that Nwaneri possibly died of a heart attack, pending toxicology results.

An autopsy showed no sign of foul play.

The Jaguars said on the team’s social media accounts “We are saddened to learn of the passing of Uche Nwaneri.”

Nwaneri grew up in North Texas and attended Naaman Forest High School in Garland before playing college football at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana.
