Shockey says he's fine

Jeremy Shockey declined to discuss Saturday what happened in the New Orleans Saints' weight room that led to his hospitalization on May 27. But he let his actions speak for him as he participated in most of the Saints' minicamp activities last weekend. Saints coach Sean Payton said Shockey was dehydrated and had low blood sugar when his muscles seized up in the weight room for about a minute, unsettling teammates and sending trainers scrambling to his aid. The tight end said he experienced something similar when he was hospitalized after passing out at a pool-side party in Las Vegas during the 2009 offseason, but did not want to discuss this latest incident in any detail. The star tight end says back spasms that kept him out of the opening practice of minicamp on Friday morning still bothered him when he returned for practices on Friday afternoon and Saturday morning. "That's expected," Shockey said. "I really wasn't expecting to do much today, but I felt better. It's hard to just sit and watch my teammates practice. ... I did some things and I hope to keep continuing to work and getting back to 100 percent."
