    From Denver Post:

    Damien Nash, a backup running back for the Denver Broncos, collapsed and died after a charity basketball game in St. Louis, his agent, David Canter, said Saturday night. <cm-bd>¶
    Nash was 24.

    Talk about a franchise with some miserable luck this offseason. RIP.

    Wow. Given the way the Broncos use running backs, he could have been their next 1,000-yard rusher. Shame.

    He was a big-name recruit at Missouri and had a helluva burst. He was exciting to watch. But he and Pinkel didn't get along, so he didn't become the college star he could have been. R.I.P.

    Wow:

    Earlier in the afternoon, sources said Nash competed in a charity basketball game at Riverview Gardens High and collapsed afterward.

    The event was held to benefit The Darris Nash Find A Heart Foundation, which raises money for heart transplant research. Darris Nash, 25, is the older brother of Damien Nash. The foundation was created last month, after Darris Nash received a heart transplant.

    Oh holy fuck.

    I wonder if how much extra attention they paid to Damien's heart given the problem his twin brother had. You'd think it'd indicate a risk factor, at least.

    That's assuming a heart problem is what killed Damien, which is usually a strong possibility when someone collapses out of nowhere.

    It's a terrible tragedy made even sadder -- not because it involves an athlete but because of when and where it happened.

    Pinkel had Brad Smith, so he never developed a game plan that would let Nash show his true talent. Nash did it in bursts, but it was never sustained.
