Update 10:50 pm: Last update for the day, LaCa is reporting that Sean was in surgery for seven hours and flatlined twice. Since then he has responded at least once, squeezing a doctor's hand Redskins Insider also has the police report, there were signs of forced entry but because there was a breakin reported on 18 November the police have yet been unable to determine which incident is responsible. Keep hoping happy thoughts, he is not out of the woods yet.
Update 5:45 pm: Over at the Washington Times they are linking to a report by Ryan O' Halloran that refers to intruders and to one from Miami channel 10 that indicates there were 'several' family members in the home, but this may simply be referring to Sean, the girlfriend and the baby.
Update 4:45 pm: The official statement from the team, also LaCa per Jake at The Sports Note it is not uncommon for injured players not to travel with the team, and I assume be at their out of town homes.
Update 4:15 pm: Per My Brain Says Rage and Redskins Insider, Sean is in a coma.
Update 4:00 pm: Hogs Haven has the latest update with hat tips to My Brain Says Rage and Mister Irrelevant, the most detailed account yet is here. Also following Redskins Insider and it is apparently touch and go for Sean. The Miami Herald piece indicates his property has been targeted before, as recently as last week.
Update 1:50 pm: Point taken, thanks to reader dave. I have taken down my initial comments reflecting incomplete information.
Update 1:30 pm: Yes, it was crass of me to put football out there this morning, I should have used discretion. Obviously once I learned this injury was life threatening I dialed it back. The only piece of reporting I had this morning at 10:30 am was that Sean was 'receiving treatment,' nothing about how serious the injury was. I regret the comments, my hope is that Sean will be ok.
Update 11:35 am: The Post just put up a longer piece here, it is short on detail.
Update 11:25 am: Chimpanzee Rage at Deuce of Davenport is reporting that Sean was shot in the groin area and that his femoral artery may have been severed, that's definitely bad and an easy way to lose a lot of blood. This story gets worse by the minute.
Update 10:45 am: Michael David Smith is following this story, now reports from ESPN that Sean Taylor is in critical condition, this is sounding not good and there is no information about circumstances or suspects.
Update 10:30 am: Michael David Smith at Redskins AOL Fanhouse has more, including a report that Sean Taylor is 'fighting for his life.' I leapt to football questions and I want to dial it back and just hope he is ok for now, we will talk football later.
Not too many details but here is what the Washington Post is reporting:
Washington Redskins safety Sean Taylor was the victim of a shooting at his Florida home, according to a statement released Monday by the team.
The brief statement from the Redskins said Taylor was undergoing treatment at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Florida and that the Miami-Dade Police Department was investigating.
Taylor, 24, is in his fourth season with the Redskins. He leads the team with five interceptions but has missed the last two games with a knee injury.
I hope he and everyone else involved is ok.
Sean Taylor from here.
