If I were T.O., I'd try to play, too

Even though Terrell Owens might not play in the Super Bowl, you can't fault him for making the effort.

I know that Terrell Owens ran Thursday on a field at an indoor practice facility. It was the first time he ran (other than on a treadmill) since he injured his right ankle and leg on Dec. 19. Still, I don't expect the Eagles Pro Bowl wide receiver to play in the Super Bowl.

But I totally understand T.O.'s desire to play, and if I were in his shoes I would do the same thing he's doing. I would do everything I could in my power to get myself ready to go.
