LONDON, England -- Jeremy Shockey let his frustration show after Sunday's loss to Carolina, but kept very quiet as he spoke to the media for the first time this week.

Shockey practiced on a limited basis Friday and is listed as probable for Sunday's game against San Diego. After returning from a three-game absence following surgery for a sports hernia against Carolina, Shockey wondered aloud about whether his injury had been properly diagnosed from the start. He also said he felt discomfort in the injured area and wasn't sure if he'd make the trip to London.

When asked for updates about his medical condition Friday, Shockey brushed the questions aside.

"That's in the past," Shockey said. "I was definitely very emotional. I'll keep the diagnosis of what I talked to my doctor [about] between he and myself."
