Shockey not talking about recent health scare

Hospitalized in two consecutive years during the latter portion of May, Saints tight end Jeremy Shockey won’t say much about the most recent incident, which arose from seizure-like symptoms.

It’s good to be back,” Shockey said Saturday afternoon, per the New Orleans Times-Picayune. “God bless that everything came
back good news, and put that behind me. Now I can focus on getting in
better shape, getting in football shape.”

Asked about the symptoms that resulted in hospitalization, Shockey referred to comments from coach Sean Payton.  “I’m not a doctor,” Shockey said. “I think [Payton] did a good job of
putting it in the media.  If you want to know what it was, listen to his
comments.”

Payton called it a “fainting episode” and blamed it on Shockey not being sufficiently hydrated or fed.

    I would guess the Saint are putting a gag order on his big mouth.
    Tipping off the league that his “fainting spell” was caused by illegal substances in isnt in his or the teams best interest.
