Former Pitt standout Jaylen Twyman is recovering after being shot four times in the Washington D.C. area on Monday.

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport spoke with Twyman’s agent Drew Rosenhaus after the incident and says the defensive lineman is expected to make a full recovery.

"They are all flesh wounds, superficial wounds. I spoke to him, I spoke to his family, they're all at the hospital. He's expected to make a full recovery," Rosenhaus said.

Rosenhaus added the wounds were a result of being in the wrong place at the wrong time and that Twyman was “an innocent bystander.”

Twyman, who opted out of the 2020 season at Pitt, was selected in the 6th round of this past April’s draft by the Minnesota Vikings.

During two years at Pitt, Twyman recorded 57 total tackles and 11 sacks with two passes defended.
