Yesterday, Cincinnati Bengals WR Terrell Owens underwent surgery to fix a torn meniscus in his knee. And today, the team placed him on season-ending (is there any other kind?) injured reserve.
According to a report from Mike Florio of PFT, the Bengals had previously considered deactivating him for the final three games anyway because of his poor attitude and performance in practice and games. Awesome. Behaving exactly like someone who wants to show that he’s changed and is ready for another new contract next season.
Head coach Marvin Lewis refused to even acknowledge Florio’s report when asked about it.
“I don’t need to address it,” Lewis said. “Have I ever addressed anything in here from ProFootballTalk? I don’t even know where it is.”
It’s on the internet, Marvin. If you aren’t bright enough to understand that, maybe that’s just one more reason that the Bengals should shit can you.
As for T.O., Peter King of SI.com reports that Owens will most certainly not be back with the Bengals next year, which makes Florio’s report seem all the more true. We’d have to agree, why on Earth would they bring him back? He had a nice year, but he still hasn’t learned to stop popping off at the mouth.
And this is just one more team that doesn’t want to deal with it.
