Less than two weeks ago, T.O.’s preseason debut with the Bills was the dominant NFL story.
But he’s since been kicked off the front page (old newspaper term for you tots who might be unfamiliar with that medium) by Brett Favre, Mike Vick, and Tommy “Two Fists” Cable.
And, according to Bills head coach Dick Jauron, Owens will remain out of the news cycle for the immediate future.
T.O. has been ruled out of the Bills preseason game this Saturday at Green Bay.
Owens, who injured a toe during the Hall of Fame game after catching two passes on the Bills first drive, didn’t practice today. Jauron, in a transcript distributed by the team, said Owens will likely be back on the field “sometime next week.”
Owens lasted through just 20 minutes of the Bills’ Monday practice before complaining of soreness in the toe.
He hasn’t practiced either of the past two days.
