NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) _ Terrell Owens ran around the field and caught passes Sunday morning, and the receiver will start for the Dallas Cowboys against the Tennessee Titans.

This caps a week in which Owens was hospitalized for mixing painkillers prescribed for his broken hand with his usual supplements, then denied a police report that he had attempted suicide. Dallas police closed their investigation Thursday, calling it an ``accidental overdose.''

Owens wore a glove over his broken right hand, which he injured in the Cowboys' 27-10 victory over Washington on Sept. 17. Doctors inserted a plate into his hand to protect the bone, and Owens said the swelling had gone down.

He comes into the game with nine catches for 99 yards and one touchdown.
