NFL star Jeremy Shockey was taken out of the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas by stretcher and taken to a nearby hospital.

Sources at the hotel tell TMZ Shockey was at Rehab -- the ironic name of the Sunday pool party at the Hard Rock -- when he was found unconscious at around 2:00 PM. The call went out to the Las Vegas Fire Department and he was taken out via stretcher. Paramedics tried to cover him up so onlookers -- including a TV camera crew -- couldn't ID him.

Shockey taken from pool party

By Chris Mortensen

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 apparently was at the Beach Club Pool at the Hard Rock Cafe Casino, another Saints official said.

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.

Chris Mortensen is a senior NFL analyst for ESPN.

To much alcohol and not drinking enough water.

I was thinking maybe his extremely large head finally exploded.

Or maybe he fainted when he facedthe reality that he does suck. On a serious note I hope he recovers for his sake
