Sports stories often throw around terms like "heroic," "courageous," and "tragic," seldom with true cause. Saturday's 49ers-Broncos game was overshadowed by a true tragedy, however, as San Francisco first-year offensive lineman Thomas Herrion, 23, collapsed and died following the game in Denver. The cause of his death his unknown.
Thoughts and prayers go out to the Herrion family.
