COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Midfielder Kirk Urso of Major League Soccer club Columbus Crew died on Sunday in a central Ohio hospital, a county coroner said.
No cause of death has been determined for the 22-year-old Urso, Franklin County Coroner Dr. Jan Gorniak said. An autopsy is scheduled for Monday.
Police were called to a bar in the city at about 12:50 a.m. and Urso was taken from there to the hospital, The Columbus Dispatch newspaper reported. Police did not immediately return messages from The Associated Press seeking details on the circumstances.
Urso played in six games this season and was sidelined by groin surgery in May. He was not with the team Saturday for its 1-0 loss to D.C. United in Washington, team spokesman Marco Rosa said.
