The Cowboys released a statement late Thursday announcing the passing of Prescott’s older brother.
"It is with great sadness and support that we share the news of the passing of Jace Prescott today,” the statement read. “The loss of Tad and Dak’s brother is devastating. At this incredibly difficult time, the Prescott family asks only for prayers and respect for their privacy.”
According to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Prescott died at his home in Orange, Texas, but the cause of death remains unknown.
“It’s the worst day of my life, all of our lives,” his uncle Phillip Ebarb told the outlet. “We’re all freaking devastated.”
Jace Prescott played offensive line at Northwestern State in Louisiana from 2008-2010.
