Florio is hosting the Dan Patrick Show Thursday, and it’s chock full of NFL guests as you may expect. (Since Florio doesn’t follow other sports.)
The first guest was agent Drew Rosenhaus, who tried to clear up misconceptions about the torn ACL of Terrell Owens.
“Well, he DID have a torn ACL,” Rosenhaus said. “It’s repaired now.”
Rosenhaus wouldn’t reveal how the tear happened, but he did say when it happened for the first time. Owens tore the ACL in early April, and had it repaired days after that. No other ligaments were torn and the timeline for the recovery is 4-6 months.
With Owens’ history as a quick healer in mind, Rosenhaus believes Owen could be ready to help a team sometime in the preseason. We suspect it will be a challenge for Owens to get a contract before Week One, when being on the roster guarantees a contract for the season.
