Andre Fluellen's Father Passes Away

Charles Fluellen, the father of Detroit Lions defensive tackle Andre Fluellen, passed away this weekend while playing in a charity basketball game. According to The Daily Tribune News, Fluellen complained of chest pains before falling unconscious. He went to the hospital after receiving CPR, but he passed away.

Here are more details from Tim Twentyman:

Rev. Charles Fluellen was participating in the "Pastors vs. Politicians" basketball game that pitted Cartersville community ministers against local politicians in a fundraiser, according to a story in the Cartersville Daily Tribune News.

The Rev. Charles Fluellen, 57, was director of the Bartow County Transit Department and pastor of Glory Harvester Church.

My thoughts go out to Fluellen, who is set to become a free agent next month. He has been with the Lions since being selected in the third round of the 2008 NFL Draft as a defensive end. He has played defensive tackle for the Lions in recent years.
