This year just isn’t getting any better for Terrell Owens, is it?
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.

Update: I’m really not sure what to say about this. If the report is true, Terrell Owens has some bigger personal issues than his bumpy football career.
According to a Dallas police report obtained by News 8, Dallas Cowboys star receiver Terrell Owens attempted suicide Tuesday night.
The report says Owens was depressed and reportedly took prescription pain pills. A woman companion states that she observed him 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.”
In an overly simplistic sense, people try to kill themselves when their lives get so bad that they no longer believe that their tomorrows can be better than today. It is hard to imagine why someone in TO’s shoes would ever feel that way, why the only answer open in his mind would be so self-destructive and permanent.
