(CBS) - Terrell Owens has had a tough year. The currently unemployed wide receiveris recovering from a torn ACL - an injury that he went as far as travelling to South Korea for stem cell treatment in an effort to get back on the field. But the hits keep coming. TMZ is reporting that the charismatic receiver was rushed to the hospital last week for unknown reasons.

The gossip site reports that a 911 call was made from an apartment in Los Angeles where Owens was staying. The police were also called, though it is unclear why.

Owens rode an ambulance to the hospital, where police followed up with him. He has since been released without a statement from either the police or Owens' representatives.

The troubled wide receiver has had health scares before, most notably the incident in 2006 when Owens has hospitalized for a possible prescription drug overdose.

CBS Sports' Charley Casserly deems the loud-mouthed Owens unemployable, saying, "I wouldn't sign him today."

Speculation is rampant on why exactly Owens was rushed to the hospital. It may end up being that Terrell injured himself falling out of the spotlight.
