Ashley Harris, the wife of defensive lineman Tommie Harris, was hospitalized on Sunday with a stroke or brain aneurysm and died on Sunday evening, Harris family friend Bill Horn said.

That's via Sean Jensen of the Chicago Sun-Times, who initially reported Harris' condition on Sunday afternoon.

Harris was drafted by the Bears with the 14th overall pick in the 2004 NFL Draft and played for Chicago until being released in February 2011. He then signed on with the Colts but was released before playing a game in Indianapolis. The Chargers signed Harris, who played 13 games for San Diego in 2011.

Tommie and Ashley, 29, were married in January.

Harris, according to Jensen, "remains popular with Bears teammates" and a few of them even made the trip to Oklahoma to be with the defensive lineman during his time of need.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Harris and his family for their tragic loss.

I wish you and yours all the best as you mourn the loss of Ashley. I can only imagine how special she was to you and want you to know that there are people you don't even know who are pulling for you. May the Lord comfort and guide you every day as your life continues to unfold and you seek His face.

Life can be so cruel at times. Keeping Tommie, his Kids and family, in my prayers and thoughts, Bear Nation loves you and you'll always be family to us. So proud of the few Bears players  that went to OKie to be with him in his time of need.

Goes to show you how fleeting human life can be. I am 29 too and never considered the possibility of something happening to me, but even the best doctors in the world could not save her. My condolences to the Harris family.
