Owens sent home …
Terrell Owens was sent home by the Eagles yesterday, and when he got to his spacious, white stucco estate in Moorestown, he simultaneously did two things he hadn't been doing during his 10 days at training camp with the team.
He talked to reporters and he signed autographs.
While he entertained neighbors and fans who just happened to be driving by T.O.'s posh neighborhood, the Eagles responded to the wide receiver's one-week suspension with a two-sentence statement.
"Terrell Owens has been sent home from training camp due to undisclosed team issues," the Eagles said. "He is expected to return to the team on Wednesday, August 17th."
Owens, his publicist and his agent all confirmed that the wide receiver was sent home by the Eagles after a disagreement with coach Andy Reid during a team meeting following the Eagles' morning practice at Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pa.
An Eagles source said the disagreement between the coach and receiver stemmed from cumulative incidents, including the fact that he did not participate in autograph sessions that the Eagles schedule on a daily basis during training camp at Lehigh University. Owens, who is in a well-documented contract dispute with the Eagles, did not join his fellow wide receivers in the autograph tent Sunday and yesterday
I said it when he was acquired, and I will say it again: The Eagles will not win the Super Bowl with Cancer playing Wide Receiver – The football gods will not allow it. Release him, and you just might win. Incidentally, the same edict was on the Vikings until recently. I fully expect them to do well now that they traded Cancer for Napoleon Harris and a 1st Round Pick.
And now, we cover golf. That means, we cover Tiger Woods.

Rogers returns; Colishaw calls it correct …There is no question, the season turned on two events. Drese and Kenny. Look it up. The records don’t lie. 24-33 since Drese was released. The Rangers were 32-24 at that point, and now are under .500, and look like the keystone cops out there. Something smells bad on the Rangers team, and it is getting to a point where no one should be safe.
Because of the ruling of a narrow-minded arbitrator, Kenny Rogers returned to the Rangers on Tuesday just in time to enjoy one of his favorite things in baseball.
Meaningless games in August.
For the second year in a row, a senseless act by a Rangers pitcher has removed the team from contention in the American League West.
A year ago, it was rookie pitcher Frankie Francisco hurling a chair into the Oakland stands and breaking the nose of a female spectator. His suspension for the final two weeks shortened the Rangers' bullpen and initiated the team's slide into third place.

Heder cracks the door for Napoleon 2 …
Despite having shot down hopes for a "Napoleon" sequel, Heder expressed a possible shift in the winds. "I'll never say yes or no to that kind of thing, unless we start shooting it," Heder said. "We get [the sequel] question a lot, but we never thought about it when we made the [first] movie. I guess it could happen.
"I think it would be fun to do, but it's just gotta be done right, I guess," he continued. "Nothing is written down yet, but I don't know. We'll see what happens. It's been more, like, joked about, but we have no idea."
Heder added that he's not afraid about being typecast as "the nerd."
"I don't mind. It's fun playing a dorky guy — or someone ugly," Heder said. "It's easy playing someone ugly and eccentric."

Bradshaw sees Harrington, and is not impressed …
"Heck, this morning in practice he made a lot of bad decisions," Bradshaw said. "I'm sitting there with Matt going, 'Oh, that's not good, that's not good, that's not good, that's not good.'
"In practice you should be a little sharper than that, I think, but who knows what they're trying to do? I'm not in the huddle over there.
"I liked him. I liked him going out of college. I like talking to him. He's an upbeat kid. But you never know internally how he's going to handle all of this."
