Shockey agent says he’s doing fine after Vegas incident

New Orleans Saints tight end Jeremy Shockey, a Las Vegas regular, is doing fine, according to his agent Drew Rosenhaus. In Wednesday's edition of the New Orleans Times-Picayune, writer Brian Allee-Walsh wrote the following story about Shockey's weekend incident at the Hard Rock pool in Las Vegas:

Saints tight end Jeremy Shockey is "100 percent and feeling great" after being hospitalized Sunday for dehydration, and he will participate in the team's upcoming mandatory minicamp, according to agent Drew Rosenhaus.

"He's doing fine," Rosenhaus said Tuesday. "You guys will see him next week. If I have anything to add, I'll call you back."

Rosenhaus hung up before fielding additional questions.

Offseason workouts resume Monday for veterans, who have the week off after the Memorial Day holiday.

All players will be required to attend minicamp June 5-7 at the team's practice facility in Metairie, La. First-round draft pick Malcolm Jenkins cannot attend because Ohio State is holding classes.

According to a report by the entertainment Web site TMZ, Shockey was found unconscious at around 2 p.m. Sunday at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas, and was rushed by to a hospital.

Team spokesman Greg Bensel said Shockey was released later in the day.

Sources at the hotel told TMZ that Shockey was at Rehab -- a Sunday pool party at the Hard Rock. The call went out to the Las Vegas Fire Department, and he was taken out via stretcher.

Paramedics tried to cover him so onlookers -- including a TV camera crew -- couldn't identify him.
