Terrell Owens, NFL free agent, hospitalized in possible prescription drug overdose

LOS ANGELES - Football star Terrell Owens was rushed to a hospital last Thursday after a 911 call for a possible prescription pill overdose, TMZ reported Monday.

The unsigned free-agent, who's currently rehabbing from knee surgery, spoke to police at the unnamed Southern California hospital before his release, TMZ said.

Messages sent to Owens' publicists were not returned, and Owens' girlfriend declined to comment when reached by the Daily News.

The record-breaking wide receiver with five NFL teams under his belt, most recently the Cincinnati Bengals, was famously hospitalized in 2006 for what he called a bad reaction to painkillers.

A police report and media coverage indicated it was an intentional Vicodin overdose.

He later denied that doctors had to pump his stomach and said he was not depressed.

"The rumor of me taking 35 pills, I think, is absurd. I don't think I would be here if I had taken 35 pills," he said in 2006.

The 37-year-old veteran posted a Twitter link Saturday to a football training video purportedly made that day.

He tweeted earlier in the week that he planned to be back on an NFL team by next month.

According to the Korea Times newspaper, the loud-mouthed legend was in South Korea in September for a stem-cell treatment meant to speed the healing of his knee, which was injured when he tore an ACL in March.
