Prayers up to Tray Walker and his family.

The Baltimore Ravens cornerback died Friday, less than a full day after being critically injured in a dirt bike accident, his agent Ron Butler confirmed to ESPN. He was only 23.

Walker was traveling westbound on his Honda dirt bike in the Liberty City section of Miami on Thursday night, while wearing dark clothing and not having his lights on when he crashed into a Ford Escape SUV, the Miami-Dade Police Department told ESPN.

The 2015 fourth-round draft pick saw limited action on the field for the Ravens last year.

Here's a disturbing image of the bike from the scene of the accident.

Upon learning the news of Walker's tragic passing, an outpour of condolences from the Ravens and the overall NFL community was expressed on Twitter, as a somber cloud has been cast over the league.
