McDougle to remain in hospital for 5-7 days

BETHLEHEM, Pa. -- Philadelphia Eagles defensive end
Jerome McDougle is expected to miss at least four weeks while recovering
from a gunshot wound, the team said Saturday.

McDougle was shot in the stomach by armed robbers late Thursday
night in southwest Miami, police said Friday.

The Eagles said he will remain in the hospital for another five
to seven days after undergoing surgery. McDougle, a first-round
pick in 2003 who was plagued by injuries in his first two seasons,
was projected to be a starter this season.
