There isn’t much in the way of details yet.

ASHBURN, Va. – 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 Miami and that Miami-Dade County police was investigating.

His family has asked that no information about his condition be released at this point, said Lorraine Nelson, a hospital spokeswoman.

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 wish Taylor a speedy recovery.

Taylor has had a history of off the field problems. From DUI to armed assault. At present it is too early to draw conclusions as to why Taylor was shot.
