Owens leaves Game With Knee Injury

CINCINNATI (AP) - Bengals receiver Terrell Owens left a game

against Cleveland after aggravating his sore left knee.

The 37-year-old receiver missed practice last week because of

the knee, but was on the field for the opening drive. He ran a long

pass route on Cincinnati's sixth play, then hobbled off the field.

He was listed as questionable for the rest of the game.

The injury was a major setback for the Bengals. Owens had a huge

game in a 23-20 loss in Cleveland earlier in the season, catching

10 passes for 222 yards - the second-highest total of his career.

He became the oldest receiver in NFL history to have 200 yards


Third-year receiver Jerome Simpson was active for the game, only

the fourth time this season he was active.
