Redskins safety Sean Taylor was shot in his Miami home late last night. PFT is reporting that Taylor “is fighting for his life,” which means that Taylor is either fighting for his life or that the bullet harmlessly grazed him.

We remind our readers on this dark day that Taylor is the original Meast, and we here pray that his man-beasty constitution and Miami’s finest doctors are enough to survive whatever damage is done. We don’t want to have to name the weekly Meast award in memoriam after the actual Meast. That would be kind of depressing.

UPDATE: Taylor is listed in critical condition.

UPDATE #2: Taylor is reportedly in a coma following surgery. Yikes.
