    That is absolutely terrible. I wish that he was able to get some kind of help with whatever was wrong to prevent this. RIP Kenny.

    Re: OT: Broncos WR Kenny McKinley found dead in apparent suicide

    Including a young son. If this was a suicide, then . . . well I won't say it.

    Re: OT: Broncos WR Kenny McKinley found dead in apparent suicide

    I saw the story on Yahoo and came here to see if anyone had started a thread yet. The story I read, however, didn't say anything about suicide.

    Whatever the case, it sucks. :(

    Re: OT: Broncos WR Kenny McKinley found dead in apparent suicide

    The Denver Post says he shot himself in the head..

    whatever the reason he did this, please remember that those who suffer from serious mental health problems often have no idea what they are doing when things like this happen even if it seems they did. They are often in a fog and cant distinguish between reality and what they perceive to be comfort.

    The best thing people can do is remember him as a person and not by this. Hopefully this helps people in America realize that everyone is effected by mental health problems, even athletes and how they can help these people learn how to effectively manage this issue and led a long productive life..

    What a tragedy. Few families are immune from some form of mental health issues. Those that are immune are exceedingly fortunate.

    Re: OT: Broncos WR Kenny McKinley found dead in apparent suicide

    I get really angry when folks jump to "mental health issue" when suicide is mentioned. You don't know what his situation was, and have no call to associate suicide and mental illness. One does not mean the other is present, ever.

    A better question to ask is what medications he was taking, and what side effects could be present. He was IR'd for an injury and Lord knows what the Doctors may have prescribed for him and how well he was tolerating them, etc.

    Regardless, though, God Bless him and comfort his family.

    The poor guy, how awful for his family:( The article says his pro-career injury problems had probably depressed him but Steve Spurrier says he finds suicide hard to believe after having recently seen McKinley at a game.

    McKinley is the third active Broncos player to die in the last 4 years
