At the breakneck end of a bizarre week in which Dimitrius Underwood stabbed himself in the neck, walked down the street bleeding, told an attending police officer "I am not worthy of God," checked into an undisclosed mental facility and left us with more questions than answers--one being, would anybody even be here had Underwood been a fifth-round pick instead of a first?

Sprawled across a navy blue sofa, Dimitrius Underwood doesn't have a care in the world. He's sound asleep in the middle of the Dallas Cowboys locker room.

After weeks of wavering, rookie defensive end Dimitrius Underwood returned to football Tuesday and pledged his 100%-commitment to the Miami Dolphins. To show he meant it, Underwood even showed up for practice. The workout was the first for the unpredictable rookie since Aug. 2, when he walked out on the Minnesota Vikings after one practice to focus on his religious faith. Underwood said his career with the Dolphins will last longer. "I'm happy to be here," he said.

"He was somewhat despondent," police spokesman Lt. Ray Hall said.
