Dwayne Haskins was legally drunk and had taken narcotics before he was killed by a dump truck last month, an autopsy found.
Haskins' BAC was 0.20 when he was killed on I-595 near Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport on April 9. That's 2.5 times the state's 0.08 limit.
Haskins' widow, Kalabrya, asked for privacy and tolerance after the autopsy report's release.
230-pound Haskins would have needed 10 beers in the hours before his death, according to UC Davis and other universities.
He also had the painkillers ketamine and norketamine. The substance is both prescription and recreational.
Near where Haskins was hit, authorities found his car empty. Witnesses say he was waving down motorists in the central lane when he was hit by a truck and SUV.
The Steelers said Haskins has no mental health issues or suicidal threats.
Haskins, 24, trained with Steelers teammates in South Florida. Haskins reportedly went to dinner with colleagues to a club with a friend or cousin, maybe in Miami.
Haskins starred at Ohio State in 2018, setting multiple school passing records and was named the Rose Bowl MVP.
