Circumstances surrounding his death weren’t immediately available. Signed as a free agent in August, Nash played in three games for the Broncos last season and finished with 18 carries for 66 yards. He started as a rookie in 2005 with Tennessee, which drafted him in the fifth round. He played in three games for the Titans. 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. Nash was 24. Nash was from St. Louis but played his senior year of high school in East St. Louis, Ill. He played two seasons at the University of Missouri after starting at Coffeyville, Kan., Community College. The death was the second to strike the Broncos in less than two months. Cornerback Darrent Williams, 24, was shot and killed Jan. 1 while riding in a limousine after leaving a nightclub in Denver, just hours after the Broncos’ season ended. That shooting remains unsolved. Brady Quinn is not working out at the NFL scouting combine this weekend. He will do the interviews, take the Wonderlic intelligence test and go through medical evaluations with teams, particularly those concerned with the knee injury that occurred during the USC game, aggravated in the Sugar Bowl loss to LSU and is not fully healed at this point. But as far as he is concerned, talk that his stock in the April NFL draft may be slipping is something to be ignored and laid to rest on pro days March 4 and 22. He is unequivocal: He will tell NFL general managers he clearly still should be one of the top three picks in the draft. “There’s not one other player who has had the kind of coaching I’ve had the past couple of years,” Quinn said. “There’s not one other player who has done what I’ve done the past couple of years. You’ve seen the progress, the numbers and everything we’ve done at Notre Dame, and I feel I am the best leader for a team that needs someone to fulfill that job.” Northern Illinois running back Garrett Wolfe would like to tell NFL teams to look past the numbers, in this case his 5-foot-7-inch stature, and focus on numbers that matter-179 all-purpose yards per game. “People are entitled to their beliefs and they feel that I wouldn’t have accomplished those same things playing in a bigger conference,” Wolfe said. “But my offensive line coach (Sam Pittman) said it best when he said everything I’ve accomplished I’ve accomplished with a Mid-American Conference offensive line. It wasn’t like I was out there playing with a Big Ten offensive line. (And) I wasn’t running up and down the field against air.” Terrell Owens needs more surgery on his injured right ring finger and might not be 100 percent until training camp. Dallas Cowboys coach Wade Phillips confirmed that the wide receiver needs a second procedure on the finger that required surgery last month after getting injured during the 2006 season. Phillips did not give a date, but The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported the surgery would be Thursday. “I’ll have to talk to our doctors and his doctors about how long he’s going to be out,” Phillips said. “Drew Rosenhaus (Owen’s agent), who I talked to already, said he was going to be back sooner than what he says.” BrieflyShalane Flanagan won the 3,000 meters in the U.S. Indoor Track & Field Championships on Saturday, finishing in 8 minutes, 56.74 seconds. Kawasaki’s James Stewart raced to his sixth win of the season Saturday night in the Amp’d Mobile World Supercross GP/Amp’d Mobile AMA Supercross Series, edging Ricky Carmichael before a record crowd of 70,649 at the Georgia Dome. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
