Raiders WR Javon Walker is out of the hospital after suffering a concussion and facial injuries while being robbed early Monday morning.  Investigators say that Walker's losses reached six figures.

Walker told investigators that he was approached by at least two people, who put him into a car and beat him. Walker said the robbers took a watch, a necklace and other jewelry worth an estimated $100,000… Walker told police he was at a number of locations Sunday night but was unable to give them a timeline. Officials at Body English, a nightclub inside the Hard Rock Cafe, said Walker was at their club until between 3 and 3:30 a.m. They denied published reports in Las Vegas that Walker left Body English at 6:30 a.m.

As for the rumors that it was boxer Floyd Mayweather's henchmen who beat him up,  The Dirty's Nik Richie claims that they are "completely FALSE."  To prove it, he prints a statement from Walker that doesn't address the rumor at all:

“I was just back at my room and at about 5:30 in the morning I got a knock at the door. I opened it and 3 guys with guns were there. They cracked me in the head a few times, knocking me unconscious. They then robbed me of everything I had; my watch, money, everything! Somehow they got me to a car and dropped me off in the street. That’s what happened.”

I'm not going to try to punch holes in Walker's account because I wasn't there (honest!), but IF that story is true, Walker got jumped by the dumbest thugs in the world.  "All right!  He's unconscious!  No, don't leave him in the room where he won't be found for several more hours!  Let's carry him to the elevator, across the casino floor, and down to our car so that we can dump him on the street!"
