Louis Nix, a former defensive lineman for the Giants who survived a shooting in December, has been reported missing by his mother.
Nix left his father’s Jacksonville, Fla., home at approximately 10 a.m. on Tuesday and has not returned, according to a missing person poster shared to social media.
Nix’s mother told Action News Jacksonville that she believes her son is in danger because “this is out of the normal for him.”
She said she “can’t call him because voicemail is full and people he talks to daily have not heard from him, [which is] not like him.”
Nix was shot during an attempted robbery while putting air in his vehicle’s tires at a Jacksonville gas station in December.
“I’m alive everyone,” Nix wrote on Twitter on Dec. 9. “The bullet that hit me ricocheted off my sternum into my lung. Surgery is the next step so keep praying for me. Thank you all for the positive energy and prayers.”
