We here at Niner Noise don’t cheer injuries to players but with recent news that Terrell Owens had ACL surgery in April, it is a possibility a team won’t sign him for the 2011 season. ACL injuries are serious especially when the player is 37 and has posted declining numbers the last two seasons. The one reason 49ers fans have a reason to be happy with Owens’ injury is because the wide receiver is second on the all-time receiving yards list with 15,934 behind Jerry Rice who leads with 22,895. Yes, Owens is 6,961 receiving yards behind Rice but the further away he is on the all-time list, the better. With Owens likely out recovering from surgery until November, Rice will stand alone with a wide margin for a long time.
