Los Angeles, Oct 11 (THAINDIAN NEWS) NFL star Terrell Owens was reportedly hospitalized last week. According to TMZ, the 37-year-old was rushed to the hospital after an unidentified person called the emergency number.

The report says the police directed the ambulance to the Los Angeles home of Owens. The incident which reportedly happened on Thursday will be the new blow in Owens’ bid to return to the game.

There is debate as to whether Owens will be back to the NFL. Last summer, Owens underwent a crucial surgery to save his career. The procedure was used to repair his damaged anterior cruciate ligament. He had another procedure for stem cell treatment in Korea recently.

Despite the obvious fact that he is struggling with his health, Owens insists that he will return to the game. He predicted that he will return to the game in less than a month after he had the procedure in Korea.

In a recent interview with ESPN, Owens said that, “I’m not gonna waste your time, so I wouldn’t expect you to waste my time. When I step on the field, you know what you gonna get.”

TMZ reports that the reps of Owns failed to comment on the latest hospitalization report.
