    Report: T.O. attempted suicide


    08:28 AM CDT on Wednesday, September 27, 2006

    By TODD ARCHER / The Dallas Morning News


    Dallas Cowboys star receiver Terrell Owens attempted suicide Tuesday night by swallowing prescription pain medication, according to a Dallas police report obtained by WFAA-TV.

    The report says Owens acknowledged to police that he had taken the pills and was trying to harm himself, WFAA-TV reported Wednesday.

    Owens was treated at Baylor University Medical Center for an undisclosed reason.

    According to the station, doctors were attempting to induce vomiting.

    Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said late Tuesday he was unaware of Owens’ trip to the hospital, and Owens’ agent, Drew Rosenhaus, and publicist, Kim Etheridge, could not be reached for comment.

    Last week, according to Cowboys coach Bill Parcells, Owens had a reaction to the pain medicine he was given following surgery in which a plate was inserted into his right hand to stabilize a fractured fourth metacarpal. Parcells said Owens became ill and could not work out, but he was improved the next day.

    On Tuesday, Owens did not speak with the media, but he appeared to be in good spirits.

    He continued conditioning work on the side with associate trainer Britt Brown and caught passes. He was wearing gloves and had his ring and middle fingers on his right hand taped together.

    Earlier Tuesday, Parcells said Owens would practice some today and he had not ruled Owens out from playing Sunday at Tennessee. Owens was wearing a bone growth simulator Tuesday to help the healing process. According to Parcells, the swelling in Owens’ hand had gone down, and the biggest challenge for Owens would be handling the pain of catching passes.

    “I have to see him out there being a confident player,” Parcells said. “I don’t want him out there thinking about something. If it’s going act as a deterrent, I don’t want that because that would eventually hurt us. But if he can get to the point where it looks like he can function and he feels pretty good about it (then Parcells would play him).

    “I’m talking to him every day, seeing how he’s doing. We’re moving forward. We have a lot of time between now and the game.”

    I just hope this is not another "TO needs to be the center of the media" bullshit.

    The dude has issues and he needs to go deal with them, but if this is just another attention whore stunt...

    All of T.O.'s attention whore stunts stem from his mental illness. Talk about feelings of grandiosity, dude has that in spades.

    TO has and is 52 cards shy of a full deck and all there is left is the Jokers. That is TO in the nut of a shell.

    All that is my thoughts that is all.
