Terrell Owens Reportedly Tears ACL Filming Reality Show; NFL Career in Doubt

by at . Comments

NFL star Terrell Owens had surgery on a torn ACL in his knee, according to ESPN, which cites a source claiming he hurt himself filming The T.O. Show.

The athlete has not commented on the injury, but the best case scenario would like be that he could be available to play in "mid to late November."

That assumes there's a season (the NFL is currently in an ongoing labor dispute with no end in sight) and someone wants T.O. (he's not that good).

Owens' mediocre season with the Cincinnati Bengals was cut short when he tore meniscus cartilage in his left knee in late December of last year.

Will we see Terrell Owens on the field again? If not, his legacy will be ... unique.

By the numbers, he's one of the greatest wide receivers in NFL history. But come on. It's T.O. He'll likely be best remembered for being a malcontent with a desperate need for attention who wore out his welcome with five teams.

In a way, an injury sustained on his VH1 show would be a fitting end to the career of a man whose talent has long been overshadowed by narcissism.

This guy deserves to have his nfl career go down in flames. He needs the disgrace while he continues to attempt to play & repeatedly fails to perform. It'll make me laugh to see his pride & ego deflate a bit....because he seriously deserves the punch in the gut.
