Rumors started going around on Twitter Wednesday evening that Oklahoma State defensive back Tyler Patmon had passed away on Wednesday.
Thank goodness it wasn’t true. Numerous friends of Patmon jumped on social media quickly to confirm that Patmon is just fine.
A tweet from former Cowboys running back Jeremy Smith read “RIP Tyler Patmon! Damn! Wth that’s so crazy.” That in turn ignited a series of tweets from former and current OSU players, and even Patmon himself:
