I heard from a friend who works at a Miami hospital that Sean Taylor was shot last night during an attempted home invasion. Apparently, he was shot in the groin and it is serious.

I wouldn't spread that around - that is a federal violation for your friend if it is true. HIPPA violation! Seriously though, its something they enforce on people and I've known people fired and sued for message board talk that was found in investigations, especially in high profile cases

Washington played at Tampa though... did he make a trip to Miami after the game? Did he even play in the game?

The last I heard was that he was supposed to be out a couple weeks with a knee injury, but wasn't on IR so I imagine he made the trip to Tampa.

Wow. Hopefully it turns out okay.Taylor's past is going to be discussed a great deal in the next few days.

Considering he was at home with his girlfriend and baby, it shouldn't. Then again, media and idiots will need something to stir the pot.

From someone on a Skins MB who may or may not be a doctor:

Here is the issue:The femoral artery is an extension of the external illiac artery which connects directly to the abdominal aorta.Severing this artery would cause a significant amount of blood loss that would cause BP and blood volume to drop immensely. Most likely his heart has already stopped and required resuscitation at some point, if the blood loss is as severe as the reports are stating. Additionally, transfusions are a given at this point as is major surgery to repair the arterial damage. Complications are of course infection, blood loss, extremely low BP and Heart Damage.This is a grim situation and I'm sure he is truly fighting for his life.

The femoral artery is a major blood vessel that is the primary supplier of blood to the legs. I recognize that his life may be in danger and that that's the overriding concern at the moment, but if that artery is permanently damaged, his career could be over.

Wonder why this isnt on ESPN News?

I was curious about that as well. I work for NBC Newschannel, and I just called in to find out if they had any details - they don't. But apparently the team confirmed the shooting according to the affiliate in Florida, but some places are waiting to confirm news of it until they get some details. Still seems odd. I mean, you don't want to end up with egg on your face due to an erroneous report, but then why not just say "there's a report out of NBC in Florida that Sean Taylor was shot". That way, if it turns out to be wrong or there's some misinformation, you can always put the blame on the initial report.ETA: It's up on the Breaking News now on ESPNews

That depends, there is a chance that it wasn't a random home invasion. It could very well be his past catching up to him. I'm not saying it was, but it's not to be ruled out immediately.

Now that this is up on ESPN and ESPNews, a lot of people are going to be flooding in here for info. At the risk of sounding like I'm on the soapbox, let's take any poor attempts at humor over to the FFA. You guys are smart enough to know what's cool and what's not, and let's try to not clutter this up with meaningless one-liners and garbage. If you're about to post something and have to think twice about whether it'll fly, that probably means it won't.

TIA

Redskins' Sean Taylor shot at Miami-Dade home

MIAMI (WSVN) -- Sources say Washington Redskins safety Sean Taylor is in extremely critical condition after someone shot him at his home early this morning.

Before dawn Monday, Taylor, a former University of Miami football player, was shot in the leg, but the bullet struck the femoral artery, and he has lost a lot of blood.

Circumstances surrounding the shooting haven't been released, but, the Redskins released a statement that said the 24-year-old Taylor was in surgery at Jackson Memorial Hospital and that Miami-Dade Police have begun an investigation.

The Washington safety missed his second straight game with a sprained right knee.

The shooting occurred at his home on Old Cutler Road in the southern part of Miami-Dade County.

Taylor is no stranger to trouble as he was involved in an incident when he was charged with assault and simple battery in July of 2005.

I'm hearing he lost a lot of blood.

:confused:

That's a big one...comparable to the jugular.

That puppy is a gusher located in your thigh area. It's always hard to repair because once it is severed it has a knack to retract up into the leg and it is very hard to get sealed up.

If you don't get immediate hospital attention you could easily bleed to death within minutes!

What goes around comes around

These are the type of posts we could use a lot less of around here.On behalf of all Cowboy fans we are hoping you pull through Sean and make a full recovery.
Why ?, I believe its true and I think I'm allowed to have my own opinion ? I don't wish him dead, but don't expect me to feel sorry for him either. You live by the sword you die by the sword, if you think thats cold and heartless try and join the Army for awhile
You live by the sword you die by the sword? He plays football and was shot by a robber with his family in the house. You sir are a moron!
Arrested for armed assaultEvents:On June 3, 2005, Taylor was named publicly as a "person of interest" by Miami-Dade County police in regard to a Miami assault case involving firearms, and was being sought for questioning. "We need to speak to him, we don't know if he's a victim, witness or suspect," Miami-Dade police spokesman Mary Walters said. Taylor allegedly was present at, and possibly involved in, an incident on June 1, 2005 in Miami, in which bullets allegedly were fired into a stolen vehicle. [citation needed] On June 5, 2005, ESPN and The Miami Herald both reported that Taylor, accompanied by his lawyer, surrendered to Miami-Dade police at approximately 10pm ET on June 4 at Miami's Cutler Ridge district police station, where he was transported to Miami's Turner Guilford Knight correctional facility. He was charged with aggravated assault with a firearm, a felony, and misdemeanor battery.[citation needed] On June 5, Miami-Dade police issued a statement indicating that Taylor had been arrested for aggravated assault with a firearm (a felony) and battery (a misdemeanor), for allegedly pointing a gun at a person over a dispute over two ATVs that Taylor claimed were stolen.[citation needed] Taylor then allegedly left the scene, but returned shortly and punched one person.[citation needed] The Associated Press reported on June 5 that Taylor was held in detention at Miami's Turner Gilford Knight correctional facility and released the evening of June 4 after posting bond of $16,500. The Miami-Dade County Clerk's Office announced that Taylor would soon be officially arraigned on the charges.[citation needed] The Washington Post reported on March 3, 2006 that Taylor's trial has been postponed until April 10, 2006. Days before that date, the trial was moved back once more, this time by a week, because of conflicts with Passover and Easter celebrations.[citation needed] CNN reported on November 26, 2007 that Taylor was shot in the leg at his home in Miami, Florida. [edit] Plea agreement and resolutionOn January 28, 2006, the Miami-Dade County prosecutor announced that he was filing new charges against Taylor, which would have increased his potential maximum jail time from 16 years to 46 years.[citation needed]The new charges include increasing his felony assault charges from one to three, which reflects the allegation that, on June 1, 2005, he brandished a firearm at three individuals who Taylor believed stole two all-terrain vehicles from him.[citation needed]The trial was again postponed on April 17, 2006 (to May 8, 2006), after the prosecutor in the case asked the presiding judge to be removed from the case. The County prosecutor's request for removal from the case came as Taylor's defense lawyers argued that the prosecutor was using the case to promote his side-work as a disc jockey in South Beach. Defense lawyers for Taylor have entered a motion for the case's complete dismissal, due to prosecutorial misconduct.[citation needed]On May 8, 2006, the prosecution requested and received yet another extension of the case, citing the new prosecutor assigned to the case and a need for additional preparation time. It was scheduled to begin July 10, 2006 in Miami. On June 2, 2006, however, the charges against Taylor were dropped as part of a negotiated plea bargain. Taylor will donate his time to various charities and make $1,000 donations to 10 southern Florida schools in scholarships and, in exchange, will avoid jail time and a felony record.[citation needed]
Maybe he learned his lesson down?My faith in people is at an all time low right now.
