    "Oakland Raiders wide receiver Javon Walker was found unconscious on a Las Vegas street early Monday morning, the apparent victim of a robbery.

    The police report of the incident says that officers responded to a report of a downed man at Winnick Avenue and Koval Lane in Las Vegas at approximately 7:19 a.m. local time.

    They found an unconscious male, who was then transported to Sunrise Hospital with "significant injuries." Walker remained hospitalized on Monday night.

    Las Vegas television station KTNV confirmed that the Walker listed in the police report was indeed the professional football player.

    Walker was released in February by the Denver Broncos after a knee injury cut short his season. He then signed a six-year, $55 million contract with the Raiders, hoping to recapture the magic that made him a Pro Bowler with the Green Bay Packers in 2004 and helped him to 1,084 receiving yards for Denver in 2006."

    As Dave Chapelle would say welcome to Oakland B**** lol

    Too bad he wasn't in Oakland.

    Glad he is okay.

    I hope he is okay, and for his sake, I hope he wasn't carrying his signing bonus on his person when he got robbed.

    Uh, whoa. That's scary. I've dogged the Raiders mercilessly for signing him, but that's just frightening.

    Wow just horrible stuff. Hopefully he'll be alright. It wasn't that long ago that Walker held Darrent Williams in his arms as he died after being shot.

    Wow. That's tough - I take no joy in his misfortune. I hope he finds himself in good health for the upcoming season.

    Goes to show what hookers, booze and Vegas can do to you if not careful. In all seriousness, I wish him the best.

    In the immortal words of Puff Diddy Honey Combs - mo money mo problems. Dang, this guy has had waaay too many brushes with death. He must feel cursed. At least he's still alive.

    Vegas is a 24 hour a day town. Action never stops.

    I am not familiar with Vegas or what part of town he was in.

    Main drag or shady district?..idonno:

    Walker was probably doing what lots of people do, go to Vegas to have a good time. He can afford it.

    It appears that he's a victim here, not a perpetrator like so many other players we read about.

    All of what you say is true..... but you're just asking for it as a recognizable professional athlete if you're out & about in a city like that, that early in the morning i'm guessing by himself. Criminals these days don't care anymore, Just ask Dunta, whom i'm sure you remember had a not-so little incident last year..... & that was at his home.

    He just spotted leaving a pawn shop where he was selling Javon's bling. He said "I'll take all of it in ones."

    Maybe he was going to breakfast buffet after his morning jog?

    I'll tell you what - If I'm ever in Vegas that round time telling device on my wrist is the last thing I'm looking at.
