  • Thomas Herrion Dies in Hospital...49ers Player

    DENVER -
    San Francisco 49ers offensive lineman Thomas Herrion collapsed in the locker room after Saturday night's game against Denver and was taken to the hospital. Emergency workers were performing CPR on the lineman as he was being placed in an ambulance.

    Players said coach Mike Nolan had just finished his postgame meeting with them when Herrion collapsed.

    "As players, we all stood back, took one knee and prayed for Thomas," defensive end Bryant Young said.

    Nolan said he had no comments about the game, a 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."

    The lineman was on the field for San Francisco's 14-play, 91-yard drive that ended with a touchdown with 2 seconds left in the game.

    Herrion, a first-year player with the 49ers, 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.

            damn here it is



            DENVER -- San Francisco offensive lineman Thomas Herrion collapsed in the locker room and died Sunday morning, shortly after the 49ers played the Denver Broncos in a preseason game.

            Herrion, a 6-foot-3, 310-pound guard, was on the field for San Francisco's 14-play, 91-yard drive that ended with a touchdown with 2 seconds left.

            Players had finished listening to coach Mike Nolan address them in a postgame meeting when Herrion collapsed. Medics administered CPR on him and took him to an ambulance that rushed him to a nearby hospital.

            About three hours later, 49ers spokesman Aaron Salkin confirmed that Herrion had died. The cause of death was not immediately known.

            "This is a colossal tragedy for the 49ers 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. They have been experimenting with sensors to measure players' core body temperatures, although those by themselves wouldn't be able to prevent a heat-related death.

            Temperatures were in the mid-60s with 50 percent humidity Saturday night in Denver, 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.''

            Shortly after that statement, the Niners got dressed and boarded buses that took them to the Denver airport for their flight back to California.

            "We didn't see anything happen,'' Niners defensive lineman Marques Douglas said. "I sat by my locker and prayed for him.''

            Herrion, a first-year player with the 49ers, played college ball at Utah and spent part of last season on the San Francisco and Dallas practice squads. He also played this season with the Hamburg Sea Dogs of NFL Europe.

            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.

            In April, Arena Football League player Al Lucas of the Los Angeles Avengers died of a spinal-cord injury he endured while making a tackle.

              He was a great guy from all the articles i've read, and what i seen from him at the practices i attended.

              He loved to sing/joke in the locker and had a personality of a comedy, with the body/strenth of an OLer.

              He will be missed.
