At this time nobody else is reporting about this, lets pray that the report from PFN is incorrect.
Sadly news of this magnitude isn't usually reported on unless there is some level of validity. Hope they can save both player and leg.

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.

ESPN and NFL.com have less grave descriptions of the situation. Here is a little blurb from NFL.com. Certainly hope that Taylor comes out OK. :-o

Redskins' Taylor victim of shooting in Florida
Associated Press


ASHBURN, Va. -- Washington Redskins safety Sean Taylor was shot as his Florida home, according to a statement released today 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.

This news is terrible, the guy was having his best season yet, forget football you just hope he makes it through...it doesnt sound good either...

Taylor apparently got shot in the femoral artery, which caused a massive bleed-out. Part of the problem here is that he has lost a great deal of blood.
