SEAN TAYLOR "FIGHTING FOR HIS LIFE"
Redskins safety Sean Taylor has been shot in Florida, a source with knowledge of the situation tells us. He is in critical condition at a Miami-area hospital and, per the source, is "fighting for his life".
Taylor spent Sunday night in his Florida home with his girlfriend and infant daughter. A robbery occurred, and Taylor was shot in the leg by one of the invaders.
The bullet severed his femoral artery. He currently is in surgery.
Taylor, the fifth overall pick in the 2005 draft, was in Florida to get a second opinion on an injured knee.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Taylor, his family, and the Redskins organization, and we hope that Taylor will make a full recovery.
