T.O Surgery

Terrell Owens‘ plans to return for a 16th NFL season are in jeopardy after he recently had reconstructive knee surgery to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament, NFL Network insider Michael Lombardi confirmed Monday through a league source.

ESPN initially reported Owens’ surgery Sunday night, saying the earliest the six-time Pro Bowl wide receiver could return to action is in mid-to-late November, according to sources familiar with the injury. Owens, 37, is scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent once the NFL lockout ends.

How exactly Owens injured the knee remains unclear. One source said he suffered the injury while taping a segment for his VH1 reality show. Another source said Owens injured himself during personal workouts.

If he really did hurt himself while filming a reality show, that would be a terrible way to end his career.  T.O. is 37 years old, he seems to have lost a step, and I don’t know if any team would be willing to take a chance on him.  Regardless of what you think of T.O., he’s a first ballot Hall of Famer.
