Former Chargers linebacker Lew Bush dead at 42

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (AP) - The San Diego Chargers say former linebacker Lew Bush - who played with the team for seven seasons and was part of its lone Super Bowl team in 1994 - has died.

The Chargers said in a statement that Bush, who also played for the Kansas City Chiefs, died of an apparent heart attack at age 42.

It was not immediately clear where Bush died - public records show he lived in San Diego and he had been a pregame commentator for the Chargers' radio broadcast team.

Bush was the Chargers' fourth-round pick in the 1993 draft and played seven seasons with the team and three with the Chiefs.

The Chargers say he is the seventh player from the Super Bowl team who has died.
