Report: Cowboys fine Owens for absences

 

NFL.com wire reports

 

IRVING, Texas (Aug. 27, 2006) -- Terrell Owens has finally pushed the Dallas Cowboys too far, drawing a $9,500 fine for missing a team meeting and a rehabilitation session and being late to an offensive meeting, The Dallas Morning News reported.

 

"That's our club business. That's going to be accounted for," team owner Jerry Jones told the newspaper.

 

The incidents occurred Aug. 24, the team's final day preparing for a preseason game against San Francisco. The Cowboys beat the 49ers 17-7, making them 3-0 this preseason without Owens playing any of the games because of a hamstring injury that's also kept him out of 19 of 31 practices since the start of training camp.

 

Neither team officials nor Owens' agent, Drew Rosenhaus, immediately returned calls to The Associated Press seeking comment.

 

During a postgame television interview, Jones did not mention the fine but answered several other questions about Owens. Jones said his only concern with the receiver is "injury, not all this other stuff you hear about."

 

Owens' past is filled with run-ins with quarterbacks, coaches and others in his own organization. San Francisco and Philadelphia got rid of him, but the Cowboys welcomed him with open arms and a lucrative contract in March, four days after the Eagles released him.

 

Owens vowed to be a better man and a better teammate in Dallas. While the fine is the most drastic, he already has done plenty to stand out.

 

He missed much of the offseason training program -- with permission -- and turned his hamstring injury into an attention-getter by flying in specialists to help him rehabilitate and wearing a cycling team outfit one day while pedaling a stationary bicycle.

 

After returning to practice for several days, coach Bill Parcells ruled him out of a Monday night game and Owens hasn't practiced since. He said he aggravated the injury because the club pushed him too hard. When Parcells said this week that he needs to see Owens on the field, T.O. responded that there's 10 years of tape to show what he can do.

 

Jones seemed to downplay the drama surrounding Owens' injury by noting that Carolina's Steve Smith and Pittsburgh's Hines Ward also have been slowed by hamstring injuries without drawing the same scrutiny as Owens. He also recalled Deion Sanders' ability to play well after flying in from baseball games and missing long stretches of practice.

 

"I know this -- when he's healthy, he's going to help us win these ballgames," Jones said.

 

The Cowboys play their final preseason game Aug. 31 at home against Minnesota. The opener is Sept. 10 at Jacksonville.

TO really hasn't done anything horrible or extreme yet. The media is blowin evrything way out of proportion and making too big of a deal out of little things like always. plenty of players miss meetings and get fined and miss rehab sessions but not all of them then hav a whole story on it on 5 different TV shows and in every news paper. TO will be fine this really isnt a big deal. He carries 9500 in his pocket wen he goes out.

Even though it probably will not accomplish nothing, this is what needed to happen sooner than later. Everyone knows TO is really only playing football for the money. Just some specualtion, but I would assume that he would be happier catching 10 passes and losing a game than catching 2 passes and winning a game. How many practices has terrell even been in? I think 5-7 at the most. On the other hand, there is no way that Parcells cannot play him. Owens is arguably the best WR in the game and taking him out of the offense would be like suicide. Even though I believe they could get by with Terry Glenn as the #1, the Cowboys would not want to do that. I guess we'll just wait and see...like last year in Philadephia. Must feel good to be a Giants fan right now :TU:

still a huge chunk of practices missing.

 

on another note, Steve Smith and Hines Ward has missed just about as many practices with the same injury. I barely hear a word about them.
