Owens Out of the Fields for a Couple Weeks
Terrell Owens will be out of the football fields for the next 2 to 4 weeks since he broke the ring finger on his right hand last Sunday during the game between the Dallas Cowboys and the Washington Redskins at Texas Stadium.
Terrell Owens made his formal Cowboys home debut and he caught three passes for 19 yards before he left the game. During the season’s opening at Jacksonville, Owens had six catches for 80 yards and a touchdown. The final result of this game was a 24-17 loss for Dallas.
The wide receiver was suspended or inactive for the last nine games of the 2005 season because of continuous problems with the Philadelphia Eagles front office, and then missed almost all of training camp and the preseason with the Dallas Cowboys due to a hamstring injury. Also, he has supposedly been fined ,500 for not attending to a team meeting. The five-time Pro Bowl selection that used to disagree with coaches and management finished last season with 47 catches for 763 yards and six touchdowns over seven games.
Owens who may have surgery on Monday or Tuesday this week said he probably got injured on one of the first plays of the game when his hand got caught in one of the Washington Redskins' jerseys. He played the rest of the game and had three drops, including a touchdown pass on the opening drive.
The Dallas Cowboys’ next game will be on Oct. 1st at Tennessee, and then, next week they will go to Philadelphia to confront Owens’ former squad: the Eagles. The football player signed a three-year, million contract with Dallas during the off-season after he spent the last two seasons in Philadelphia.
