Terrell Owens was hospitalized Thursday in Los Angeles and later released after an unidentified person called 911 to report a medical emergency at an apartment where the free-agent wide receiver had been staying, TMZ.com reported Monday.
The website later cited law enforcement sources in reporting that officials were responding to a possible prescription pill overdose. Police spoke to Owens at the hospital before he was released.
An Owens rep had no comment when contacted by TMZ.com.
Owens ranks second on the NFL's all-time list in receiving yards (15,934) and tied for second in touchdowns (153) with Randy Moss.
