Former Giants tight end Jeremy Shockey, now a Saint, was taken to the hospital after suffering seizure-like symptoms during a weight room session today.
One teammate told a New Orleans reporter that Shockey started shaking all over and seemed "out of it" for at least a minute.
"It was a little scary; it looked like maybe a mild seizure or a full body cramp or something," the teammate said. "There were a decent amount of guys in the weight room at the time. 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.''
There's a lot of divided sentiment about Shockey on this blog as to the assets and liabilities he presented during his Giants incarnation. But I think we all hope there's nothing seriously wrong with him.
