New Orleans Saints tight end Jeremy Shockey was taken to the hospital after becoming dehydrated near a swimming pool while attending a party with several NFL players in Las Vegas, spokesman Greg Bensel said on Sunday.

After being treated, Shockey was discharged from the hospital, according to Bensel, and appears to be "in good shape now."

The party, called "Rehab," apparently was at the Beach Club Pool at the Hard Rock Cafe Casino, another Saints official said.

Celebrity gossip site TMZ.com first reported that paramedics wheeled Shockey out on a stretcher from the pool party after he was found unconscious Sunday afternoon.

Shockey made the Pro Bowl four times with the New York Giants but was traded to the Saints before last season. He caught 50 passes for career lows in yardage (483) and touchdowns (0) and missed five games with a sports hernia.
