Only two days after word emerged, via FOX’s Jay Glazer, that Colts quarterback Peyton Manning went to Europe for stem-cell treatment, the Korea Times reports that free-agent receiver Terrell Owens has gone to Korea for similar therapy on his knee.
Per the report, Owens is visiting the Chaum Anti-Aging Center at the recommendation of Dr. James Andrews.
Owens reportedly arrived Sunday for the treatment. “Mr. Owens starts with therapy Monday followed by the collecting and storing of his stem cells the next day,” Dr. Lee Jung-no told the Times.
Owens suffered a torn ACL during the offseason. He seemed to be getting healthier, as evidenced by a video he posted online in August. But he also said not long thereafter that he’d be playing again by Week Two or Week Three of the regular season. If it’s true that, on the Sunday of Week Two, Owens arrived in Korea for stem-cell therapy, it doesn’t bode well for him to be playing by Week Three.
