Kenny McKinley's teammates, coaches seek answers for his suicide
"Obviously, he had things going on in his life that he didn't let on," said Derek Cook, McKinley's quarterbacks coach at South Cobb (Ga.) High School near Atlanta, told the Denver Post. "Everyone is really sad and shocked. He was making strides in the positive direction. Everyone was proud of him for where he was and what he was doing."
McKinley was recovering from surgery for his second season-ending knee surgery in eight months.
"He felt like he was healthy and he would have the opportunity to step in this year," Cook said. "To have the second injury, he really never conveyed to me how devastating that was to him, but apparently it was pretty big."
