Former Green Bay Packers tight end Jimmy Graham is making a comeback in the NFL with another one of his former teams: the New Orleans Saints. While Graham has played for several teams throughout his NFL career, he enjoyed his greatest success with the Saints.
With the team in Los Angeles for their upcoming preseason game against the Chargers, Graham experienced some kind of medial emergency that required law enforcement to be called and resulted in his being taken into custody and transported to the hospital.
The New Orleans Saints Release a Statement on Former Green Bay Packers Tight End Jimmy Graham
New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham experienced a medical episode last evening, which resulted in him becoming disoriented. 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. He was released this morning and is with the team as they continue preparations for Sunday’s game against the Los Angeles Chargers.
One hopes that whatever it was that caused Graham to become disoriented will be taken care of immediately. The NFL has been trying to combat head injuries and their long-lasting effects ever since the issue became public knowledge.
