KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Sherrill Headrick, a former Dallas Texans and Kansas City Chiefs linebacker, has died. He was 71.
The team announced Headrick's death Thursday. The Kansas City Star reported on its Web site that Headrick died Wednesday of cancer. Chiefs officials had no details, including where the former TCU star lived or where he died.
