    CBS News in Los Angeles has just reported that San Francisco ***** guard Thomas Herrion has died after collapsing in the locker room after the game in Denver.

    Herrion was put on a stretcher and rushed to a nearby hospital. Paramedics attempted CPR on the way.

    Herrion, a first-year player with the *****, played college ball at Utah and spent part of last season on the San Francisco and Dallas practice squads and also played this season with the Hamburg Sea Dogs of NFL Europe.

    Our prayers are with Herrion's family.

    Unbelievably sad. :sad:

    A little more news:

    Niners Lineman Thomas Herrion Dies
    - By EDDIE PELLS, AP Sports Writer
    Sunday, August 21, 2005


    (08-21) 00:32 PDT DENVER (AP) --


    An offensive lineman for the San Francisco ***** collapsed in the locker room and died Sunday morning, shortly after the team played the Denver Broncos in a preseason game.


    Players had finished listening to coach Mike Nolan address them in a post-game meeting when Thomas Herrion, a 6-foot-3, 310-pound first-year player, collapsed. Medics administered CPR on him and took him to an ambulance that rushed him to a nearby hospital.


    About three hours later, ***** spokesman Aaron Salkin confirmed that Herrion had died. The cause of death was not immediately known.


    "This is a colossal tragedy for the ***** and the entire NFL community," Salkin said. "We still do not know all the details. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Herrion family."


    The death comes a little more than four years after offensive lineman Korey Stringer of the Minnesota Vikings died of heatstroke during a training camp practice on a day during which the heat index soared to 110.


    Since Stringer's death, NFL teams have increased their efforts to teach players about hydration and how to manage the heat, experimenting with sensors to measure players' core body temperatures.


    On Saturday night in Denver, temperatures were in the mid-60s with 50 percent humidity, although experts say heatstroke can occur even in cool conditions.


    After the game, Nolan said he had no comments about San Francisco's 26-21 loss to the Broncos.


    "There are more important things on our mind than the game," he said. "Right now, our thoughts and prayers are with Thomas Herrion."


    Stringer's death was thought to be the first of its kind in the NFL. In 1979, St. Louis Cardinals tight end J.V. Cain died of a heart attack during training camp. Chuck Hughes, a wide receiver for the Detroit Lions, died of a heart attack Oct. 24, 1972, during a game in Detroit against the Chicago Bears.

    I know we hate them, but it is still sad to see life fade that quick.

    Doesn't matter to me what color his uniform is...a young man, part of the NFL, has passed on. I hope there will be a moment of silence to remember him in every game today.
    Our thoughts and prayers go out to Herrion's family, friends, and teammates.

    I am truly sorry about the death of Thomas Herrion. The guy has stuck around and kept trying to realize his dream of being on an NFL team.

    If I may, I suggest a 3 day period of non-Niner bashing to pay our respects. Instead, how about a betting pool on which Chiefs player will be arrested next?

    MOM, nice and thoughtful to give the guys of Frisco -- and their fans -- a break.

    They'll need it. Herrion had said he wanted to make the team and buy his mother a nice house.

    :tut:
