On the day that authorities announce charges against the man who shot former NFL running back Joe McKnight to death, news that another former running back has also died.

FOX's Chris Hoenig reports:

1994 Heisman Trophy winner Rashaan Salaam was found dead in the parking lot of a Boulder, Colorado, park Monday night:

(Cordingly) "At this time, there is no indication of foul play. There is no threat to the community. The cause of death will be released by the Coroner's office."

Boulder police spokeswoman Shannon Cordingly. Salaam ran for more than 2,000 yards in 1994, leading the University of Colorado Buffaloes to an (11-1) record that included a victory over Notre Dame in the Fiesta Bowl.

He was drafted in the first-round the following year by the Chicago Bears, where he ran for more than 1,000 yards as a rookie. But his production dropped off over the next two years and he played his last game in the NFL in 1999 with the Cleveland Browns.

Rashaan Salaam was 42-years-old.
