Former NFL linebacker Geno Hayes is reportedly in hospice care and fighting for his life following liver complications.

Hayes, 33, is currently is at his mother’s home in Valdosta, Ga., his high school coach Frankie Carroll told the Tallahassee Democrat. Carroll says he visited Hayes at the home last Sunday.

“Geno's in need of prayers. He’s fighting for his life,” Carroll said. “It’s tough. Geno’s a fun-loving guy.”
The cause of the liver issues are not clear from the report.

Hayes spent seven years in the NFL with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Chicago Bears and Jacksonville Jaguars. He was drafted in the sixth round out of Florida State by the Bucs in 2008, replacing Derrick Brooks as Tampa Bay's weakside linebacker.

He last played in the NFL in 2014 with Jacksonville, starting 11 games.


Sad, wish him the best

Dang been a while since I heard his name. I remember I always thought he was going to be a great player for the Bucs but then he kept getting injured or maybe it was related to this, who knows. Hopefully he pulls through. 33 is way too young.

Congenital or self inflicted liver complications? Curious if anyone knows yet. Condolences to his family and friends.
