Another Giant Shot

From NY Daily News:

Taye Biddle, a receiver who spent most of the season on the Giants’ practice squad, was shot on Sunday outside of his home in Decatur, Ala.

According to reports, the 25-year-old Biddle suffered two gunshot wounds — one to his hand and one to his leg. He was treated at Decatur General Hospital and released and apparently is doing well.

A statement released by the Decatur Police Department said “there is no evidence to indicate that Biddle did anything to contribute, cause or provoke the shooting.” One report said he was simply heading towards his car “to get something out of it when he was hit by gunfire”.

That report also said Biddle needed surgery on his left hand.

A Giants spokesman said the reports are consistent with what Biddle has told them about the incident. “We have been in constant contact with Taye over the last two days and we are thankful he was able to walk away from this incident with relatively minor injuries,” the spokesman said.

No arrests have been made in the shooting, and the police had no information on a possible motive.

This, of course, is the third incident involving a Giants receiver and a gun in the last two months. On Nov. 25, Giants receiver Steve Smith was robbed at gunpoint outside of his Clifton, N.J. home. Three days later, Giants receiver Plaxico Burress accidentally shot himself in the thigh in a Manhattan nightclub.”
