The tragedies just continue to pour in for the Denver Broncos. The team lost another player when 24-year old running back Damien Nash passed away following a charity basketball game in St. Louis on Saturday. Nash's passing comes less than two months after the Broncos lost rookie cornerback Darrent Williams to a drive-by shooting following their final game of the season.
The cause of death was not yet available. The game he was playing in was for a foundation named after his older brother, Darris Nash, who was 25 years old. Darris had received a heart transplant last month. According to former Missouri receiver Sean Coffey, who was at the event, nothing appeared wrong with Nash during the game.
Nash was a fifth-round draft pick in the 2005 draft by the Tennessee Titans. He would have been with the Titans roster last season if they had not been so stacked at running back. Instead, the Broncos signed him in free agency. Nash played in three games with the Broncos, carrying the ball 18 times for 66 yards.
My condolences go out to the family that Nash has left behind. If you guys have time, check out Mile High Report, our Denver Broncos affiliate, for more information on this story.
