DECATUR, Ala. (AP) – New York Giants receiver Taye Biddle is recovering from gunshot wounds to his hand and leg after being shot while visiting family in his hometown.
Decatur police said in a statement on Thursday that Biddle was shot outside a residence and was treated and released from a hospital. Police said there was no evidence Biddle caused or provoked the shooting.
“He had surgery on his hand today,” Biddle’s friend, Bruce Jones, told The Decatur Daily on Thursday. “He told me his leg is OK, and he ought to be fine.”
Police have not made any arrests in the case.
Biddle was promoted from the Giants’ practice squad after receiver Plaxico Burress was suspended for a game in September.
Burress was later suspended for the season after accidentally shooting himself in the leg in a nightclub.
