The Tennessee Titans have lost one of their franchise greats after former tight end Frank Wycheck passed away at the age of 52.

Per a statement from his family, via Titans beat writer Paul Kuharsky, Wycheck died after an apparent fall in his Chattanooga home on Saturday.

He is survived by his two adult daughters, Deanna and Madison, and his three grandchildren, Leo, Stevie and August.

At this time, it appears Wycheck fell inside his Chattanooga, TN home and hit his head on Saturday morning. He was found unresponsive that afternoon.

Wycheck moved to Chattanooga, TN this past summer to be closer to his family. He leaves behind two adult daughters, Deanna and Madison, both married, and three grandchildren — Leo, Stevie and August.

The family, per his wishes, plans to work with experts for on-going brain injury (TBI) and CTE research. Funeral services have not yet been made at this time.

The Wycheck family appreciates the love and support they’ve received, but asks the public to please respect their privacy during this difficult time. Thank you.

Wycheck became one of the best and most beloved players in franchise history after being claimed by the Houston Oilers off waivers in 1995.

The tight end ranks seventh in franchise history in receiving yards, and first among tight ends in that category. He also threw the lateral to Kevin Dyson that sparked the legendary “Music City Miracle” play in the 1999 playoffs.

Our thoughts and prayers are with his family at this time. Titans fans and the rest of the football world shared their condolences upon hearing the awful news.
