Terrell Owens focuses on acting while knee heals

ATLANTA (AP) - August 24, 2011

Owens, who tore his anterior cruciate ligament and had surgery in early April, was filming an episode of the USA sitcom "Necessary Roughness" on Wednesday at the Georgia Dome. He says his knee is a couple months away from being completely healed and though no team has contacted him, he still expects to play this season.

The 37-year-old Owens says he is not worried about the skeptics who wonder if can still be a major NFL contributor. He says he is capable of making plays on the field, pointing out the 983 yards and nine touchdowns he had with the Cincinnati Bengals last season.
