Former Cowboys Headache Terrell Owens Tears ACL, Out Six Months

Former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Terrell Owens apparently tore his ACL recently according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen. There are conflicting stories from Mort's sources on how the injury occurred. One source suggests that the injury occurred while Owens was taping a reality television show (ha) while another source suggests that the injury occurred during a private workout. Either way, Owens is expected to be sidelined well into the 2011 NFL season- assuming there is one.

Owens also had a knee injury - tearing meniscus cartilage - which ended his 2010 season with the Cincinnati Bengals

If Mort is correct and this is true, then that likely puts an end to Owens' days as an effective NFL receiver. Owes was solid for the Bengals last season, but will now be yet another year older coming off one minor knee injury and one major knee injury headed into the last half of the upcoming season.

I doubt too many Cowboys fans, or fans of sanity, are crying over this. Though, this might increase Owens' presence on television which could very well be a bad thing for society. Still, it looks like Owens better get some popcorn ready since he'll be watching a lot of this season from the couch on Sundays.
