Cause of UCF Death Unknown

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- An autopsy is inconclusive on the death of a Central Florida football player.

The Orange County Medical Examiner's office said Wednesday that more testing will be needed to determined what killed 19-year-old Ereck Plancher. The office says it will take several weeks to complete.

Plancher lost consciousness Tuesday after strength and conditioning drills. UCF was scheduled to start spring practices Wednesday, but those drills have been indefinitely postponed.

Plancher was a 5-foot-10, 184-pound wide receiver from Naples. He and about 80 other players were headed home after lifting weights and running before he collapsed.
