Jeremy Shockey

Hospitalized

5/27/2010 5:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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."

This report has to be incorrect because Shockey doesn't participate in the off season work outs. He is always in Miami!!

First he passes out because of dehydration? Then he suffers from "seizure like" symptoms? If I didn't know any better sounds like the dudes and alcoholic going through withdrawls.



I bet he drank a whole bunch the night before - went to practice (where he obviously can't drink) then BAM seizure - its all so common.

Probably aspartame poisoning. Docs will run a battery of tests, not find or deny the true cause and put him on a toxic Big Pharma drug.
