Terrell Owens was running routes and catching passes in his return to practice Thursday, showing only a slight limp at times. Still recovering from a sprained left ankle, he didn't go against any defenders during the short period of practice open to the media but appeared to be healthy enough to play Sunday against the Giants.
While he was taking full strides running routes and making some cuts without any apparent problems, Owens had a slight limp at times when he jogged or walked.
Seen in the perimeter around the locker room during lunch before practice, Owens appeared to be walking fine, though he said little.
"You're not getting anything out of me," Owens said.
Owens hurt his ankle Dec. 22 in the game at Carolina, and sat out the regular season finale at Washington. The All-Pro receiver took part in the team's light walkthrough Monday, but didn't practice Wednesday while doing rehabilitation.
Fellow receiver Sam Hurd said Owens has spent "like 19 hours out of his day" trying to get back on the field and expects T.O. will play.
"If I have to play, I'm ready to play, but most likely, hopefully, he'll be out there on Sunday," Hurd said. "He tells me all the time, opportunities like this don't come around every season, so he wants to take advantage of them. ... He believes in this team so much that he wants to get out there and help this team get to the Super Bowl."
