He was previously diagnosed with arteriovenous malformation in his brain. He was first diagnosed with this health problem in 2011, while he was attending the University of Florida.
This health issue is known as AVM. It is an abnormal connection between arteries and veins, bypassing the capillary system.
In 2018, he suffered an aneurysm and was placed in a medically-induced coma. He was later transported to a nursing facility to help treat his health problems.
“We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of Neiron Ball on September 10, 2019 at 4:15 am,” Natalie Myricks said in a Facebook post. “The Ball family is forever grateful for the prayers, donations, and immense support of Neiron and his recovery. Neiron was a very special and loving father, brother, and teammate. Neiron has transitioned to a place of peace.”
In those six games, he had five tackles, including one tackle for a loss and one quarterback hit. He also had 1.0 sacks and one fumble recovery.
