San Francisco 49ers guard Thomas Herrion suffered an apparent seizure following Saturday night's game against the Denver Broncos and was rushed to a local hospital by ambulance at the conclusion of the game.
Paramedics worked feverishly to revive the first-year player providing CPR, after he collapsed in the locker room.
"As players, we all stood back, took one knee and prayed for Thomas," San Francisco defensive end Bryant Young said.
Preliminary reports indicate that it appears to be very serious, but no official word has been released on his condition.
San Francisco head coach Mike Nolan refused comments on the game, stating "There are more important things on our mind than the game. Right now, our thoughts and prayers are with Thomas Herrion."
Broncos Update will keep you posted on all the latest details.
Herrion was a first-year player with San Francisco after playing college ball at Utah. He 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.
