    "Flamboyant Dallas Cowboys receiver Terrell Owens tried to kill himself by overdosing on pain medication, even putting two more pills into his mouth after a friend intervened, according to a police report obtained Wednesday."

    I hate the guy, but hopefully he's OK.

    They said a while ago that he was having adverse reactions to the pain medication.

    Maybe they made his mind a little cooky

    K, now there are conflicting reports

    -TOs camp says 'not suicide attempt'

    -police report\polce say 'suicide attempt'

    and it WAS TREATED as a suicide attempt by police and hospital staffs.

    so we'll find out more. 35 painkillers. i doubt it was an 'accident'

    Also, the woman he was with (i think it was his PR rep) attempted to take pills OUT of his mouth. so....yeah, hes messed up in the head(like thats news). Hope it works out.

    last night his pr rep said he was in the hospital cuz he was allergic to the pills.

    police report said he was in for attempted suicide.

    when paramedics showed up, they asked if he was trying to harm himself, he said "yes"

    his pr rep said that he was confused by the question.

    I think he needs to retire and get away from the spot-light. it's obviously no good for him. he must have super low self-esteem. why else would he always need constant attention?

    Greg Jennings could eat twice the amount of pain killers and practice the same day.
