Grant was assaulted and had an injury to his neck, according to a statement released by Capt. Will Caudill of the Early County Sheriff's Office. Grant was transported to Early Memorial Hospital, where he was treated and later released.
Early County Sheriff's deputies responded to reports of a fight around 1 a.m. Sunday at a nightclub in Blakely, which is about 190 miles southwest of Atlanta.
``We're aware of the situation and are gathering information,'' New Orleans Saints spokesman Greg Bensel said. ``Until we complete the process, we will have no further comment.''
In the incident, 23-year-old Korynda Reed of Blakely was shot, police said. She was transported to Southeast Alabama Medical Center in Dothan, Ala., where she died. Early County Sheriff Jimmie R. Murkerson said Reed was pregnant.
A star at the University of Georgia, Grant was drafted by the Saints in the first round of the 2002 NFL draft.
Grant, a native of Colquitt, Ga., who now lives in Kenner, La., had 2 1/2 sacks in 2007 while starting 14 games for the Saints. During his six-year career, Grant has 38 1/2 sacks.
