Jaguars WR Kassim Osgood had to jump for his life on Monday night when he leapt out of a second-floor window to escape a armed intruder who attacked him and a 19-year-old Jaguars cheerleader, according to police.

Osgood was watching television late Monday night with Mackenzie Rae Putnal when the armed intruder, Putnal's ex-boyfriend, entered wielding a gun. The intruder pistol-whipped Osgood in the head after pulling Putnal by her hair and hitting her with the gun and his fists.

Putnal escaped to her parents' home downstairs and grabbed a gun. Putnal exchanged fire with the intruder but shots from both guns missed.

Osgood jammed a chair under the door and jumped out a window to the lawn below. He ran to a neighbor's house to call police. Osgood sustained minor bruises during the attack and while fleeing.

The Florida Times-Union first reported the incident.

"He's fine," Jaguars coach Jack Del Rio said. "I'm aware of it. I really can't comment on that whole deal. He's doing OK."

Osgood is in his first year with the Jaguars after signing as a free agent this past offseason. He has made three Pro Bowls as a special-teams player — all with the Chargers — and has a 24-yard TD catch this season.
