Odom
Morning news reports on local television stations said the home of Bengals defensive end Antwan Odom was a total loss after a fire early Tuesday morning in the Heritage Club section of the Cincinnati suburb of Mason, Ohio. Odom and his family weren't home, neighbors said, and there were no injuries reported.

"We are in the process of reaching Antwan to express our concern,” Bengals spokesman Jack Brennan said. “For just an expression of concern it’s OK to contact him. There is no business-related contact with players during the lockout, but for a personal matter such as this we are at least able to try to reach him.”

Cincinnati.com said investigators for the State Fire Marshal will most likely bring heavy equipment Wednesday to gain safe entry into the home. It was too dangerous for investigators to get a complete look, a spokesman said.

The web site also ran a statement from Odom's publicist:

“Antwan and his family are very appreciative of all the well wishes. He and his family were safe in their Alabama home at the time of the incident. At this time, he asks that everyone respect his privacy while he and his family put the pieces back together.”
