Coroner releases cause of death for former Clemson RB CJ Fuller

The Pickens County coroner's office released the cause of the death for former Clemson running back CJ Fuller on Tuesday.

Fuller died on October 3, 2018, from a pulmonary thromboembolism and deep vein thrombosis after treatment for a leg injury sustained playing football, said the coroner's office. The diagnosis means a blood clot in a vein broke free and then became stuck in the lungs.

Fuller had surgery on his leg on Sept. 19, which was two weeks before the Easley native died.

Fuller played on Clemson's national championship team in 2016 and totaled 599 rushing yards with six total scores over 44 games.
