    Nothing clear yet. I would have said heatstroke but the game was played in 61 degrees so I doubt it would be heatstroke.

    A 310lb man, out of shape(don't tell me a man carrying that much fat is in shape), playing at Denver's altitude, pretty much tells me what happened.

    It's very sad indeed. He was very young.

    But he only played the final few minutes of the time. I'd say dehydration had a role in it. But heatstroke can occur in cooler temperatures. Reports are pending, could be 3-6 weeks though.

    Okay I didn't know it was likely he could die from heatstroke in cooler temperatures. Sir Foxx did bring up the point of Denver's altitude so yeah that played a role I'm sure. He was the first NFL player to die from game related incidents since Kory Stringer, whom was also a huge lineman.

    I doubt it was a heat stroke. Because he's hauling more weight and taking more air in, and Denver's thin air, I'd say that's what did the poor guy in. It's terrible to think of a pro athlete dying because of conditioning.

    Good point. I'd say it will be speculated sometime over the next few weeks until official results are released.

    It would make another great media circus if they even found creatine in his house or locker room. I was thinking at the least they're going to mention supplements. When it could have been a genetic heart problem or who knows what. I'll pass on the bet since the media just wants to hear every bad thing about steroids these days.

    I am honestly surprised this has not happened sooner. The NFL needs to trim down. 350-400 pound linemen are not healthy, period.

    Damn straight. Most NFL linemen weren't 300~ until the Cowboys put some dinosaurs in the early 90's and everyone went big after that. The issue for these guys is making them practice in 100 degree weather with insane humidity 2 times a day.

    JUst a follow up dont know if this has been posted somewhere else here.

    DENVER -- San Francisco 49ers lineman Thomas Herrion died from heart disease when he collapsed after a preseason game in Denver on Aug. 20, the Denver County coroner said Tuesday.


    Herrion had ischemic heart disease, with significant blockage in his right coronary artery that caused the death of heart muscle, the city health department said in a news release. Herrion's heart was slightly enlarged.


    Drug screens on Herrion's blood and urine found only atrophine, a drug administered when medical personnel tried to revive him.


    Herrion, 23, was pronounced dead early on the morning of Aug. 21. The 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 been pronounced dead.
