0527-shockerbn-creditNew Orleans Saints tight end Jeremy Shockey was rushed to a local hospital earlier today after an incident at the team's practice facility, TMZ has confirmed.

According to local reports, Shockey was suffering from "seizure-like symptoms" while inside the team weight room.  

A league source told WGNO that Shockey was able to walk to the waiting ambulance without assistance.

Shockey was hospitalized right around this time last year after he was found unconscious at the Hard Rock in Las Vegas. A rep said at the time Shockey was "dehydrated."

UPDATE: The Saints coach has announced that Shockey will stay at the hospital overnight.

Meanwhile, Shockey just tweeted that he is "OK."
