I'm actually surprised there hasn't been a thread on this yet, but Sean Taylor of the Washington Redskins was shot and killed in his home Monday morning. He was transported to the hospital and underwent surgery for a severed artery. After the surgery things seemed to be going well, but he soon died of complications Tuesday morning.
Sad story, my prayers are with his family, especially his fiancee and 1-year-old daughter. The NFL should dedicate all of the next week's games to him, even if he was a troubled player and a nuisance to the league during his four years.
