Teammate: Shockey was "out of it" for a minute

The good news is that Jeremy Shockey was able to walk to an ambulance under his own power after experiencing seizure-like symptoms during a weight training session on Thursday.

Still, the incident sounded pretty scary for those who saw it.

One player, talking anonymously to Brian Allee-Walsh of New Orleans.com, described the scene this way:

“It was a little scary; it looked like maybe a mild seizure or a full
body cramp or something. There were a decent amount
of guys in the weight room at the time,” the player said.  “At first nobody really knew
what was going on, but the trainers took control of the situation after a
while.

“He was shaking and everything, and he was basically out of it for
probably a minute or so
, but it seemed longer. After he started coming
back everything was pretty much all right. He seemed aware and
everything seemed OK after a while. He got up and was walking around.”

It’s not fair to draw many conclusions from this account.  We’re sure the Saints and Shockey will do everything possible to uncover why this happened, and whether it has anything to do with his hospitalization last year in Las Vegas for dehydration.

    How far is the weight room from the showers?
    Could have been accidental exposure to shampoo!

    To quell the inevitable drug rumors, Shockey issued a statement saying “It was merely a case of Delerium Tremens”.

    They should take one of his 2 rings away, eli carried the giants on his back that year while shockey held a clipboard on the sidelines… Seizure? should have been shot

    ‘Roids + Drugs + Alcohol + Lifting = Seizure

    I don’t like Shockey one bit, I think he’s a class A asshole.
    Having said that, I hope they figure out what’s wrong with him soon, and he gets better.
    It sure sounds like Epilepsy to me.

    Wow what restraint on PFT’s part.

  13. GurpBadesha says: May 27, 2010 6:10 PM

    Give him some Vicoden, I’m sure Sean Payton has some to spare.

  15. Jeff says: May 27, 2010 6:16 PM

    Shockey says on his official Facebook page that he is okay and there’s no need for worry.

    Jeez, you people making light of Shockey’s health issues should get castrated so your obviously pathetic genes don’t further dilute humanity’s gene pool. Hahahahah, he had a seizure. Yeah, that’s real funny. Morons!

  22. Ilovefoolsball says: May 27, 2010 7:09 PM

    Franchise, the Aints are dead b–ch. The SAINTS are SUPERBOWL 44 CHAMPIONS.
    Hey Franchise what place did your team come in last year?
    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

  23. Franchise says: May 27, 2010 7:11 PM

    One word:
    Vicodin

  24. vanhelsing says: May 27, 2010 8:51 PM

    i agree with joe. shockey is epileptic.

    Lifting weights equals maximum blood pressure so a mini-stroke would get my vote. Whatever it is, it is not good.
