    NFL's McDougle, a former UM standout, shot
    BY ANNIE TASKER
    atasker@herald.com

    Philadelphia Eagles defensive end and former University of Miami standout Jerome McDougle was shot in the stomach last night after a robbery at Southwest 122 Court and 203 Terrace.

    McDougle, 27, was in his silver Mercedes coupe when three black men, all between 15 and 17 and at least two of whom had guns, demanded he hand over his watch and his wallet.

    McDougle gave them his watch. When he stood to get his wallet out of his pocket, he was shot once in the stomach. Two other shots missed McDougle and hit his car door. The robbers, whose faces were covered, ran from the scene. McDougle was airlifted to Jackson Memorial Hospital's Ryder Trauma Center.

    He is in good condition today after undergoing surgery.

    Eagles DE Jerome McDougle Shot in Stomach
    Friday, July 29, 2005
    (07-29) 08:54 PDT MIAMI (AP) --

    Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Jerome McDougle was shot in the stomach by armed robbers, police said Friday. The team said he was in good condition after surgery.

    He originally was listed in critical condition. However, Derek Boyko, the Eagles' director of media operations, said McDougle had spoken to team officials and was walking around his hospital room.

    "Our understanding is that Jerome is in good condition after undergoing surgery," the team said in a statement. "At this time, we are still in the process of gathering the facts of his situation. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Jerome and his family."

    McDougle, who played at the University of Miami, was due to be in the team's camp Monday, the reporting date for Eagles' veterans. Rookies reported Friday.

    McDougle, 27, was airlifted to Jackson Memorial Hospital's Ryder Trauma Center, where he underwent the surgery.

    Three armed robbers approached McDougle 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.
