Former Packers and current New Orleans Saints tight end, Jimmy Graham, experienced a medical episode Friday night. He was taken into custody by authorities and transported to a hospital, the Saints said in a statement Saturday.
“New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham experienced a medical episode last evening, which resulted in him becoming disoriented,” the statement says.
“He was taken into custody by local authorities and transported to a local hospital for evaluation for what Dr. John Amoss believes to be a likely seizure and spent the night under medical supervision and testing.
“Amoss met Graham at the hospital and is overseeing his care at this time,” the statement continued. “He was released this morning and is with the team as they continue preparations for Sunday’s game against the Los Angeles Chargers.“
Police responded to a call around 7:39 p.m. Friday of a suspicious person acting erratically in the 22700 block of Pelican Hill Road. Graham was found wandering in traffic. He was later released, and the incident is under investigation.
Dr John Amoss, overseeing Graham’s care, attributed the incident to a likely seizure. Graham remained under medical supervision and underwent testing overnight.
