TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Police say a Tennessee Titans player has died of an apparent suicide.

Tampa police spokeswoman Andrea Davis says officers found 25-year-old O.J. Murdock inside his car Monday morning with what appeared to be self-inflicted gunshot wounds. The car was parked in front of Middleton High School, where Murdock attended school.

He was taken to Tampa General Hospital, where he later died.

Murdock started his college career at South Carolina in 2005 but left the school and played for two years at Fort Hays State. He was signed by the Titans as an undrafted free agent a year ago, and spent the entire 2011 season on injured reserve after suffering a right Achilles injury. Murdock did not report to training camp over the weekend.
