Terrell Owens was taken to the emergency room for an undisclosed reason Tuesday night, and doctors treating the Dallas Cowboys receiver were trying to induce vomiting, according to a television report.

 

Owens was brought by a fire rescue crew to Baylor Medical Center, Dallas-Fort Worth television station KTVT reported, citing sources the television station did not identify. A reporter for the station later said she saw Owens being wheeled down the hall.

 

Calls from The Associated Press to Owens' agent, his publicist and the Cowboys were not immediately returned Tuesday night. The hospital told the AP that they do not have a patient registered by Owens' name.

 

KTVT said a Dallas police spokesperson was en route to the hospital to talk about a "high profile case."

 

Owens broke the bone leading to his right ring finger a week ago Sunday night. The next day, a plate was screwed in, protecting the bone so it can heal without further damage.

 

Earlier Tuesday, Cowboys coach Bill Parcells said he expects Owens to rejoin his teammates at practice Wednesday and would start Sunday in Tennessee if he proves he can play.

 

"It's just, can he withstand the pain of catching the ball?" Parcells said. "When he can stand it, he can play."

 

With the Cowboys having had a bye last weekend, Owens could return without having missed a game. He's already said he'll play Oct. 8, when he gets to face his former team, the Eagles, in Philadelphia.

I know it's a fairly common occurence for some patients involved with heavy pain medication to become slightly disoriented as far as remembering when the last time a pill was taken or how many they have had that day and accidentally OD on the medication if it is strong enough. They then go to the hosptial and take ipecac to force vomiting in an attempt to clear the system of the medication. Not sure if this happened here but sure could be a possibility.

DALLAS ? (AP) ? Flamboyant Dallas Cowboys receiver Terrell Owens attempted suicide by overdosing on pain medication, even putting two more pills into his mouth after fire rescue personnel arrived.

 

A Dallas police report released Wednesday morning said Owens told rescue workers ??that he was depressed.'' The report was first released by WFAA-TV.

 

The rescue worker ??noticed that (his) prescription pain medication was empty and observed (Owens) putting two pills in his mouth,'' the police report said.

 

The worker attempted to pry them out with her fingers, then was told by Owens that before this incident he'd taken only five of the 40 pain pills in the bottle he'd emptied. The worker then asked Owens "if he was attempting to harm himself, at which time (he) stated, 'Yes.'''

According to a Dallas police report obtained by News 8, Dallas Cowboys star receiver Terrell Owens attempted suicide Tuesday night.

 

The report says Owens, 32, was depressed and reportedly took prescription pain pills. Owens broke his right hand in a Sept. 17 game against the Washington Redskins.

 

A woman companion stated that she observed Owens putting two pills in his mouth.

 

According to the police narrative, the woman said the prescription of 40 pills was filled on September 18 and?until Tuesday?Owens had taken only five pills.

 

The police report said Owens was asked if he had taken the rest of the prescription; Owens said, "Yes."

 

According to the report, police also asked if he was trying to harm himself. Owens answered, "Yes."

 

Owens was treated at Baylor University Medical Center.

 

A Dallas Cowboys spokesman told News 8 the team has no comment on the police report, nor is any news conference scheduled.

Damn man, what's going on in that head of his.

 

What's unfortunate is that I have a hunch a lot of what played into this is how much the media obsesses over him (whether or not he invites a lot of it) and his every move. Now, his acts will get even more coverage.
