Chris Cooley Speaks/Dan Snyder to Speak

Cooley said that the latest he heard on the situation was that Sean endured 6 hours of surgery today and is in a coma. He said that Santana Moss's mother is at the hospital and gave the team an update from there.

"It's a tough thing right now," Chris said. "I feel for so sorry for Sean and his family."

Also, Daniel Snyder will make a statement to the media in a few minutes.

Thank you for the updates Jasno.

My prayers go out to Sean, his family and teammates. Please pass on the sentiments of the RI community if possible. We're all pulling for him.

First of all, football is secondary.

Pray that Sean Taylor makes it through.

That young man has a child.

He's one of my favorite players, but it's not about Sean the player.

It's about Sean, the father, the son of his parents, and a human being.

Let's not jump to any negative conclusions here...This may be what's called a medically induced coma, in which a patient is deliberately kept in a state of hibernation. Among other things, I am told that that rests the brain so that it requires less blood, oxygen and glucose. I'd think that would increase blood flow to organs that might have been traumatized by a rapid, massive loss of blood.

Coma was probably induced. Kidney failure is posible, so during a transfusion, they want to maximize the blood flow to organs which may be in distress. Its a good sign he survived the first 3 hours in my opinion.. I'm praying for you Sean!

I hope that Sean Taylor makes a full recovery not so I can see him on the football field again, but to ensure that his little daughter has a Father. Good luck Sean. You are in my prayers.

Our Thoughts and prayers will continue to go out in support of the Taylor family, The Redskins Team and Fans. This is just terrible. I live in Dallas, but this is much much more important than football. This is life. Hang in there to all of you
