Baltimore Ravens cornerback Tray Walker died on Friday of injuries suffered in a motorcycle accident near Miami, his agent said.

According to the Miami-Dade police department, Walker, 23, was riding a dirt bike when he collided with a car on Thursday. He was taken to a Miami hospital.

Walker, who grew up in Miami, appeared in eight games for the Ravens, mostly on special teams, during his rookie campaign last season.

His agent, Ron Butler, said Walker was surrounded by friends and family when he was pulled off of life support around 5 p.m. local time Friday at the Ryder Trauma Center at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami. Butler said Walker never showed any brain activity after arriving at the hospital on Thursday.

"I just wanted to say that Tray was an incredible young man and had a very promising career ahead of him," Butler told Reuters. "He will be missed."
