New Orleans Saints: Tight End Jeremy Shockey Sent To Hospital With Seizure Like Symptoms


Tight end Jeremy Shockey was sent to the hospital at the tail end of a workout session during the teams OTA today with what has been described as seizure like symptoms. Shockey was alert and did walk to the ambulance under his own power.

Today was the third day in a row the Saints have held team activities but the first time they have been open to the media, Shockey practiced in both the morning and afternoon practices and by all accounts showed no signs of any detrimental health issues.

In 2009 Shockey caught 48 passes for 569 yards and three scores after a disappointing and injury riddled 2008 season, his first after being traded from the Giants.

No further details have been released at this point and the team has yet to make an official statement about the incident nor have they confirmed it in any way.
