I just heard that he was being carjacked and then was shot in the process. I haven't yet seen an online account yet, but I just now heard it on the radio.

Anyone heard this too?

MIAMI -- Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Jerome McDougle was wounded when robbers demanded his car and shot him late Thursday night, police said.

McDougle, 27, was airlifted to Jackson Memorial Hospital's Ryder Trauma Center, where he underwent surgery, Miami-Dade police said.

"Our understanding, as reported by the MDPD, is that Jerome is in good condition after undergoing surgery," the Eagles said in a statement. "At this time, we are still in the process of gathering the facts of his situation."

Three armed robbers approached the former University of Miami star at his silver Mercedes coupe late Thursday, police said. The suspects demanded the car, then fired their weapons, police said. McDougle was shot once in the stomach.

The robbers, who police said were likely teens, fled on foot and remain at large.

It wasn't clear whether McDougle was in his car or near it when he was approached, police said.

McDougle was a first-round pick in 2003, but has been plagued with injuries in Philadelphia. In two seasons, he had 18 tackles in 19 games, including two sacks.

McDougle had 114 tackles and 14 sacks in two seasons at Miami, and was a second-team All-American in 2002.

My hopes and prayers go out to him. Hopefully he will recover and have a great season, as many see the Eagles in the Superbowl again, (can't wait).

Yes this was on sports talk radio this morning and now everyone at work is talking about it. That really sucks getting shot for a car. I hope he didn't try to put up a fight when they asked for his car because it just isn't worth your life to save your car. It sounds like he is doing fine now after surgury.

An injury and training camp hasn't even started yet! Hugh Douglas will probably have to take his place full-time now I am guessing. I hope this doesn't hurt Hugh's chances this year in the big man dance off challenge.
