Jeremy Shockey Rushed to the Hospital

5/25/2009 5:17 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jeremy ShockeyNFL star Jeremy Shockey was taken out of the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas today by stretcher and taken to a nearby hospital.

Sources on the scene tell TMZ Shockey was at Rehab -- the ironic name of the Sunday pool party at the Hard Rock -- when he was found unconscious at around 2:00 PM. Paramedics ended up wheeling Shockey out of the Hard Rock via stretcher. We're told the paramedics tried to cover Shockey up so onlookers -- including a TV camera crew -- couldn't ID him.

UPDATE: We just talked to a rep for the New Orleans Saints, who told us Shockey was just "dehydrated" and that he'll be "fine."

What's going on?! Did he just get drunk and pass out or is it something more serious? I'm a Saints fan and we need Shockey. Hopefully it's something small. Praying for you Shockey.

He looks relatively young, too young to be in a medical crisis. Prayers going out for him...

Hey #7 -

Broaden your horizons. He is a very good NFL player. You need to get a life...

I love how you say he isn't famous, he's a FAMOUS football player. Played for the Superbowl winning Giants and now plays for the Saints. Good try though, why don't you just go to NY and stalk Brangelina on your own, TMZ is doing their job. Get a life.

I hate football and even I know who he is. That would make him famous.
I hope he's alright. I'd hate to see something horrible happen to him. Maybe it was just too much drinking in the hot sun.

#7's favorite star is probably Paris Hilton...lol. And btw, regardless of his personal issues, athletes are typically ten times more talented than "stars" any day...jmo.

He is not a great NFL player average at best. And he did not play for super bowl winning giants,. He was hurt. Thats why they won.

Yes they wanted to hide his identity so some news outlet wannabe like TMZ couldnt write a bunch of speculative crap and have his family hear about it that way. Respecable news outlets do not release their name until the family is notified.
