It was reported late Sunday afternoon that New Orleans Saints tight end Jeremy Shockey was found unconscious poolside at the Hard Rock Cafe Casino.

Shockey, along with several other NFL players, were at the casino for the “Rehab”-themed pool party.

Apparently, Shockey suffered a bout of dehydration, causing him to go unconscious. Shortly thereafter, he was rushed to a Las Vegas hospital, where he was treated and released.

All reports have Shockey in good shape, and as of yet, the Saints have not released any further information regarding the incident.

It had been reported that Shockey was excused from the Saints' OTAs last week for “family reasons.”

It’s unclear if Shockey was at the party without the team's knowledge, but we will keep you posted as news is available.
