IRVING, Tex.--Wide receiver Terrell Owens was on the practice field with the Dallas Cowboys here this afternoon, a day after denying an account in a Dallas police report that he tried to commit suicide Tuesday by overdosing on prescription pain medication.
Owens caught passes from quarterbacks Drew Bledsoe and Tony Romo during individual drills in an indoor practice facility at the Cowboys' Valley Ranch headquarters. Owens participated fully in the early portions of practice that were open to media members. However, reporters were ushered out of the practice bubble by Cowboys officials before full team drills commenced.
On Wednesday, Owens said he planned to practice today and play Sunday against the Tennessee Titans in Nashville. He suffered a broken right ring finger in a game against the Washington Redskins 11 days ago, and underwent surgery the following day. The Cowboys had a bye last week so if Owens plays against the Titans, he will not have missed any games.
He caught passes without any apparent problems during the segment of today's practice that was open to reporters. He even used his right hand to slap hands with Bledsoe after one play.
Owens was released from the Baylor University Medical Center on Wednesday after being hospitalized overnight. He said he had an allergic reaction Tuesday evening to painkilling pills and nutritional supplements that he took.
