Following the game on a comparatively cold Saturday night, coach Mike Nolan addressed his players, which is when the 23-year-old guard fell apart.
The 6-foot-3, 310-pound athlete received CPR from medical professionals before being transported to a Denver hospital in an ambulance.

According to 49ers defensive lineman Marques Douglas, “We didn’t see anything happen.” “I prayed for him while I sat by my locker.”
The coroner’s office stated that no details regarding Herrion’s cause of death will be made public before Sunday afternoon.

The 49ers and the Herrion family are in our thoughts, according to NFL spokesperson Greg Aiello on Sunday. “We’ll check in with the 49ers to find out what transpired.”
Herrion, a former Utah college player, was present for San Francisco’s 14-play, 91-yard drive that resulted in a touchdown with only two seconds remaining in the match. The team verified his death around three hours after he had collapsed.
According to 49ers spokesperson Aaron Salkin, “this is a colossal tragedy for the 49ers and the entire NFL community.”

Fox added that in 97-degree heat, Herrion never had any trouble during rigorous training. The linemen had no illnesses or ailments while playing at Kilgore, he continued.
He said, “The young man was in shape.”
At Kilgore, Herrion went by the monikers “Train” and “Big T.” Fox claimed that because his head was too large for a typical helmet, he went as “Thunder” in Germany.

Fox noted that Herrion’s family was a major source of inspiration for playing, since he frequently discussed his niece.
“He told me right away that he was going to make this team and get my mom a nice house when he got here,” Fox recounted.
