Former Penn State offensive lineman Adam Gress has died, the school confirmed Friday.

The Allegheny County Medical Examiner's office reported Gress, 26, was found dead Thursday afternoon at a home in Dormont, Pennsylvania. The medical examiner's office did not immediately release a cause of death.
