"We are aware of the reports regarding Jerome McDougle, who, according to the Miami-Dade Police Department, was shot in the abdomen during a robbery attempt in Southwest Miami late Thursday night. Our understanding, as reported by the MDPD, is that Jerome is in good condition after undergoing surgery. At this time, we are still in the process of gathering the facts of his situation. As soon as more information becomes available, we will keep the media and fans informed. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Jerome and his family."
Head coach Andy Reid will be updating this situation later today.
Because of McDougle's unsure status, veteran DE ND Kalu, who is coming back from an ACL injury which knocked out his entire 2004 season and fellow veteran DE Hugh Douglas will have to pick up the slack. Douglas had rotator cuff surgery in February. Both players are expected to participate in training camp.
