The ailment can be caused by a viral infection, inflammation or other causes. Ewald said some cardiomyopathy conditions run in families. He said he never met Damien Nash, but “the fact that Damien was doing high-level athletics may indicate that was not the problem.” Chiefs’ Allen wants trade:Chiefs defensive end Jared Allen formally requested a trade out of Kansas City after contract negotiations broke down over the weekend in Indianapolis, Allen’s agent, Ken Harris, said in a phone interview Sunday. The Kansas City Star reported that the team rejected the request, and Chiefs general manager Carl Peterson told the newspaper that the club plans to tender Allen on March 1, the deadline for teams to submit qualifying offers to restricted free agents. Chiefs spokesman Bob Moore could not immediately confirm the report Sunday. He said he was waiting on lab results to check for drugs or alcohol, and a look at tissue sections. He’s also asked a forensic pathologist who specializes in hearts to look at Nash’s heart. Nash died Saturday after coming home from a charity basketball game he’d organized in his brother’s honor to benefit heart transplant research. The St. Louis County medical examiner’s office said results of an autopsy on Denver Broncos running back Damien Nash may not be known for days. “I didn’t see anything to point to a cause of death,” said Dr. Kamal Sabharwal, the medical examiner.
