INDIANAPOLIS -- Indianapolis Colts players and fans shared memories and love for linebacker Edwin Jackson who was one of two men killed by a suspected drunk driver early Sunday morning. 

Police believe Jackson, 26, was the passenger in a rideshare vehicle when he got sick and the driver pulled over to help him out. That's when a suspected drunk driver ran into the back of the vehicle hitting both Jackson and the driver, Jeffrey Monroe, 54.
