Although details remain sketchy, a spokesman for the Dallas police confirmed that Cowboys' starting free safety Keith Davis was shot twice early Sunday morning as he was driving westbound on Interstate 635.

Davis, 27, is being treated at the Baylor Medical Center for wounds that are not considered life-threatening and he is listed in stable condition. Police declined to comment on reports that Davis was wounded in the thigh and the head.

It was not immediately known how the injuries will affect Davis' availability for the start of training camp or for the season. The Cowboys are scheduled to report to camp in Oxnard, Calif., on July 28.

This marks the second time in Davis' career that he has been victimized by a shooting. He was shot in 2003 while a bystander outside a Dallas-area nightclub, was subsequently released that year, and sat out the entire season. He rejoined the Cowboys in 2004.

A former Sam Houston State star, Davis blossomed for the Cowboys in 2005 after playing primarily on special teams his first two seasons in the league. He started 15 games last season and finished fourth on the team with 68 tackles. He also led the club in special teams tackles, with 16 and had a forced fumble.

In April, the New Orleans Saints signed Davis to a restricted free agent offer sheet, but the Cowboys retained the three-year veteran by matching the offer. The contract will pay Davis slightly more than $3 million and included a $1.2 million roster bonus. Davis, who entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent in 2002, is scheduled to earn a base salary of $825,000 for 2006.

If there was one shortcoming in Davis' performance in 2005, it was an absence of big plays, as he authored no interceptions or fumble recoveries and posted just three passes defensed. In terms of skills-set, Davis is probably better suited to strong safety, but Dallas already has a Pro Bowl-caliber playing at that position, in Roy Williams.

Police said that, as of Sunday afternoon, they had no motive for the shooting and continue to seek suspects.

He probably pissed off other Texan motorists by only doing 90 in a 55 zone, and got himself shot.

You know, it is helluva coincidence for some one doing nothing wrong to get shot TWICE in a matter of a few years.

Know who I wish would get shot? Whoever it is in Hollywood that keeps green-lighting the Wayan's brothers movies.

He was shot twice years ago, and the cowboys cut him...now here he is shot again, once in the head and once in the arm......carjacking probably.
