Although news broke Monday that Terrell Owens underwent ACL surgery that could keep him out of action for six months and could possibly lead to his retirement, his agent Drew Rosenhaus insisted today Owens should be ready to play by August.
"All the retirement talk is nonsense," Rosenhaus told ESPN, via USA Today. "There's been no discussion about that, and this injury is not a big deal."

Rosenhaus didn’t want to talk about how the injury occurred -- which might mean the rumors that Owens injured himself while taping a new reality show could be true -- but Rosenhaus reiterated Owens, after undergoing the surgery in early April, will be ready to play next season (this, of course, assumes anybody wants him).
"The old injury has been repaired," Rosenhaus said. "He is many months into recovery and doing fantastic. No predictions on training camp, but he comes back fast from injuries. I won't rule him out of anything. He will be a starting receiver for someone this year."
