Bad news for T. Owens owners...unsure if he could play

Postby Brass Monkey » Wed Nov 02, 2005 12:59 pm

ESPN's Chris Mortensen is reporting that Terrell Owens has informed
the Eagles that his playing status for the next two games might be in
jeapordy due to his injured ankle.

He apparently told the Eagles his ankle was hurting so badly that he
might not be able to play this week. And he said he felt uncertain
about his ability to play in week 10.

It's the same right ankle that he broke last season although it's not
known if this latest issue is directly related to the injury from last
year. Mortensen said that Eagles spokeman Derek Boyko did not add any
clarification to Owens' status but that he did acknowledge that Owens
would be listed on the injury report that comes out today.

Obviously, this will be one we'll watch very closely for you.

If Owens were to miss time, Reggie Brown would be a guy we like to see
more action there. As we wrote in the Game Recaps Monday, Brown saw
four targets and was the intended receiver on what would have been a game
tying TD. He's a solid player. Brian Westbrook would see more action and we
like for TE L.J. Smith to see more work of Owens were to be out.

Personally, I'll believe it when I see it. I really gotta believe that against 2 division rivals this guy will show up. At the same time, I really hope he doesn't.

Yahoo just updated RW. I was thinking the same thing all morning...but it is. wrote:Nov 2 Eagles wide receiver Terrell Owens sprained his right ankle during Sunday's loss to the Broncos, and he told the team that the painful injury could keep him out of upcoming games against the Redskins and Giants. Sources informed's Chris Mortensen of Owens' opinions, but team spokesman Derek Boyko would not clarify the receiver's status. Owens sprained the deltoid ligament in his right ankle and suffered a small fibula fracture just below his right knee on December 19, 2004.
Views: We'd like to hear from head coach Andy Reid before panicking too much about this news, but obviously this ailment comes at a terrible time for the Eagles. Losing Owens would certainly hurt Donovan McNabb's fantasy outlook, as the team would likely revert to starting rookie Reggie Brown in his place. We'll continue to monitor this situation to see if Owens is truly in jeopardy of missing two weeks.

i too would like to hear from when the old lady leaves the room i'm going to the nfl network ;-D
