Terrell Owens did have ACL surgery, plans to be ready when NFL season opens

Terrell Owens did indeed have knee surgery. He plans to be ready when the NFL seasons starts. And, no, he won’t say how he was hurt.

Nothing more to see here. Move along.

Drew Rosenhaus, Owens’s agent, confirmed to ESPN that the wide receiver, who will be a free agent when/if the NFL season begins, tore his anterior cruciate ligament and had surgery in early April. He will, Rosenhaus said, “be playing at the start of the NFL season.” Dr. James Andrews performed the surgery on the same knee on which Owens had surgery to repair meniscus last year.

“The old injury has been repaired,” Rosenhaus said. “He is many months into recovery and doing fantastic. No predictions on training camp, but he comes back fast from injuries. I won’t rule him out of anything. He will be a starting receiver for someone this year.”

Owens, who was placed on the injured-reserve list Dec. 21, caught 72 catches for 983 yards and nine touchdowns for the Cincinnati Bengals last year.
