I'm no big fan of T.O. but I will be VERY surprised if drugs are involved.

I would never even consider letting Byron Nelson and T.O. share the same spot in my mind.

TO is supposed to be very health conscious and supposedly does not abuse his body. So it would be shocking if it is drugs.

Not a doctor, but it seems to me with illegal drugs by the time you are at the hospital the drugs have dispersed in your body and it's too late for vomiting or stomach pump.

Sounds more like accidental poisoning, with chance of suicide attempt.

Also inducing vomiting indicates you are conscious and cooperating with the treatment. So my bet is on accidental poisoning.

More:

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.

Me too. Intentional or accidental ingestion of poison (drug overdoses would fit the bill).
