Fox football analyst and former QB, Terry Bradshaw will be absent from his hosting duties today, flying home to be with his family after his son-in-law, Rob Bironas died in a crash last night.

Bradshaw’s daughter Rachel had only been married to Bironas since June.

Bironas, who served nine seasons as a kicker for the Tennessee Titans, died after he lost control of his pickup truck Saturday night. He was 36. 

Fox issued a statement about the absence, explaining that the former Pittsburgh Steelers legend “flew home to take care of his family.”

During their pre-game coverage Sunday, broadcasters on both Fox and CBS offered their condolences to Bradshaw and his family.

In a statement on the department website, Metro Nashville Police said his SUV was speeding when it went off the road and hit a line of trees before coming to a stop upside down in a culvert. source

Bironas was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead. Police said there was no evidence of alcohol or drugs at the scene.

Terry last missed an Fox NFL broadcast this year after his father passed away just before the Super Bowl.
