After what the Washington Times described as a home invasion, Washington safety Sean Taylor (above, right), rehabbing from a November injury, was shot in the groin this morning . The Miami Herald reports this might’ve been the third time in the past week Taylor’s house was broken into.

Taylor’s lawyer, Mark Sharpstein claims there are “a number of people jealous of Sean’s success”. Probably fewer people this afternoon, I reckon.

Taylor, the 5th overall pick in the 2004 draft, leads the Redskins in interceptions (5).

(UPDATE : further details from the Miami Herald.  According to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen, Taylor has emerged from 6 hours of surgery and has shown some movement and ability to acknowledge conversation with his doctors).
