As we wait for more positive news on the labor front, the weekend brought injury news for a couple of big-name players, including the possible end of a career.
Is T.O.'s career over? Next question.
The end of the T.O. era? … We already knew that we probably wouldn’t be seeing Terrell Owens in a Bengal jersey again in 2011, leaving us with another offseason of uncertainty for the 37-year-old WR. Well, now we don’t know if T.O. will even play again at all. ESPN reports that Owens tore his ACL and underwent knee surgery.
