I heard it was a staph infection brought on after he had the back surgery, which was a few days ago. It was originally reported that the surgery was successful, apparently it was not.
Eitherway, very sad and God Bless the White family. They will be in my thoughts and prayers.

The team announced White's death today.
White died of complications following back surgery, according to Steelers radio voice Bill Hillgrove.
