How is Jeremy Shockey?

Hes doing well. We held him out today unrelated to last week. We held him out today because he had some back spasms. Last week he was dehydrated and all the tests came back. Basically his blood sugar count was low and he had that fainting episode. Whats holding him back right now is just his back. Its something that probably in the last 24 hours it began to twinge on him and were going to just play it day to day with him and make sure that hes ready but thats unrelated to what happened a week ago so the good news is from a test stand point, hes healthy, hes just battling the back. We have to get him ready.

Was it a seizure or dehyrdration?

He was dehydrated. His blood sugar count was real low. He had finished practice, and he was in the weight room. He just finished his set on the bench press and felt faint. They got him hydrated, did all the tests, and fortunately, they all came back positive. Right now its really the other thing that hes working on and working on rehab. We are just trying to calm it down and make sure hes healthy. Weve got a pretty good stretch here in the next two weeks.

The fainting episode or back spasms are not long term things?

No, the back is something we are going to take day to day. Its something that hes had before and its something thats been aggravated in the past day and a half, so we will just play that day by day, and well get him out here sooner rather than later. Really three days here and then a series of eight more practices after that. So, well just play it by day and see how hes feeling.

Whats your response to this back and forth Twittering throughout the team? Do you want it to stop?

We mentioned this a year ago, with the Twitter and a lot of these other means of communication. Really, when you Twitter, its a press conference and I think its something that we talked about a year ago and its something that we talked about this week. Bottom line is that were sitting here in June, and so I havent really paid that much attention to it until the last, really, 24 hours. The various comments going back and forth, I just think its fairly silly that we are sitting in the month of June talking about two players. It would be different if they were texting each other but I dont anticipate it being any more of an issue, but it is something when you decide to. I dont have a Facebook or a Twitter, or any of those other things, but when you decide to do something like that, you are having a mini press conference. We make sure the players understand that.
