Still no sign of T.O.

Fifteen days ago, Bills receiver Terrell Owens injured his toe during limited work at the Hall of Fame game.

Owen returned to practice last Monday.  Though coach Dick Jauron refused to call it a setback, T.O. had a setback.

A week later, Owens still isn’t practicing.

“He says it feels a lot better,” Bills coach Dick Jauron said Monday in comments circulated by the team.  “We won’t bring him back onto the field though until we feel like it’s all the way back to where it was.  It doesn’t make any sense for us to do that.  So it’s critical that he does get back as soon as he can to get the timing and get his reps in and get his work done.”

Asked whether it’s important to get Owens on the field for the next-to-last preseason game, the traditional dress rehearsal for the regular-season opener, Jauron said, “I can’t say that it’s critically important.  I can’t say that.  We just need to get him back as soon as he’s healthy enough to get back on the field.  Clearly he knows how to play in the National Football League, but everybody needs their timing and work on the field to work with the quarterbacks particularly, so we’ll get him back as quickly as we can.”

Owens’ extended absence has tempered some of the enthusiasm surrounding the Bills, but that will all be forgotten if he’s in the starting lineup for Week One — and if he’s able to stay there.

  1. Florio, clearly he wants to skip as much practice as he possibly can. You knock Favre all day long for the same thing.
    BS injury on TO,
    WRITTEN BY A BS sportswriter.

  2. This is just the d-bag’s way of avoiding the late August practices without causing a sh*tstorm .

  3. Give him a break, it’s a pre-existing injury.
    He had to carry the Cowboys WR corps for the past few years, that’s a lot of stress on the feet!

  4. TO does what he wants when he wants. Jauron had to know this going in. I would think you know that, too, Mike.

  5. Oh no, they say he’s got to go
    Go go T.O.zilla
    Oh no, there goes Buffalo
    Go go T.O.zilla

    You gets what you pay for
    I thought the Gov just had a program Cash for Clunkers
    T.O. last year
    1052 yds 10 TDs
    Giants starting WRs Dominick Hixon and Steve Smith COMBINED
    1150 receiving yards 3TDs
    Look around before you start throwing stones.

  7. it is hard not to laugh at the bills for this…. they did it to themselves by signing this prima donna.
    i predict at the end of the season, Scott Norwood will ring fonder memories in the hearts of Bills fans than Terrell Owens.


  9. @venis2k1:
    Speaking of looking around before throwing stones – the 2008 Giants had TWO 1,000 yard rushers on their team. Below are some stats of the two leading receivers on the five teams in NFL history which had two rushers surpass 1,000 yards in a season:
    08 Giants (Domenik Hixon & Steve White)
    1170 yards, 3 TDs
    06 Falcons (Michael Jenkins & Roddy White)
    942 yards, 7 TDs
    85 Browns (Brian Brennan & Clarence Weathers)
    936 yards, 3 TDs
    76 Steelers (Frank Lewis & Lynn Swann)
    822 yards, 4 TDs
    72 Dolphins (Howard Twilley & Paul Warfield)
    970 yards, 6 TDs
    Let’s also consider that Amani Toomer and Plaxico Burress combined for 1034 yards and 8 TDs, action which would have been seen by other players had those two not been the starters at the beginning of the ’08 season.
    Finally, let’s consider that the Cowboys leading WRs after T.O. (Patrick Crayton & Row Williams) combined for 748 yards and 5 TDs and NONE of their RBs ran for 1,000+ yards.
    So, venis2k1, please just STFU.
