Thomas Herrion, San Francisco 49ers guard has suffered an apparent seizure following tonight's game, and has been rushed to a local area hospital.

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."
