Last night ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reported that WR Terrell Owens had undergone an operation to repair a tear in his ACL. Mortensen adds that a November return is possible but that isn’t a guarantee.
There have been multiple reports as to how Owens injured his knee, one of which is that it could have happened while he was filming a show for VH1.
The market for aging wide receivers doesn’t appear to be very hot and the fact that there are a number of options available to interested teams doesn’t help their chances of finding work for the coming season. Owens would have had a hard time finding work before the injury but now there will be a lot questions about the strength of his knee and his overall ability. Since he would be returning at some point in November if things go as plan, there could be a team that’s looking for help at receiver and Owens would be a cheap option for them.
Then again he may decide to hang it up and call it a career if rehabbing the knee becomes to much for him. Owens has remained in great physical condition throughout his career so I would expect that he would give a comeback a shot.
