Fans of the Buffalo Bills are showing incredible support for tight end Dawson Knox following the tragic passing of his brother, Luke. The Florida International linebacker was 22 years old.

Bills fans showed their support by donating to P.U.N.T., a pediatric cancer organization close to the Knox family. Fans donated $16.88, in honor of both players’ jersey numbers.

Per TMZ Sports, the organization revealed it received nearly $100,000 in donations. That amount came in since Thursday, according to the organization.

“Dawson Knox and his family are an incredibly valued and cherished part of our organization,” said P.U.N.T. executive Gwen Mysiak. “They have stood behind our mission with their whole hearts. In sorrow, we stand with them now at this time of profound loss.”

Luke spent four years at Ole Miss before transferring to FIU. Dawson has spent the first four years of his NFL career in Buffalo.
