Rams WR Mardy Gilyard robbed at gunpoint

We've heard the inspiring story of the St. Louis Rams newest receiver, from living in his car, working his way back into school to getting a shot at his NFL dreams. Gilyard got an footnote for his biography last night when he and another man were robbed at gunpoint in Cincinnati. 

He lost a $500 chain and $90 in cash. Fortunately, he didn't try to test his YAC skills by outrunning a speeding bullet. 

[Note by VanRam, 05/18/10 12:43 PM EDT ] And why was Gilyard not in St. Louis for OTAs, you ask? He can't participate, per NFL rules, until his graduating class finishes the semester, which doesn't happen at the University of Cincinnati until June 16.
