Terrell Owens had surgery on his finger yesterday and it was considered a success. The finger in question was not permanently damaged as had been speculated and Owens is very happy with the results.

"The doctor is very optimistic," Owens said from Miami on Thursday night. "I am happy I had the surgery. I am happy with the news he gave me that I will return to 100 percent."

Owens said his Miami doctor stayed in constant contact with Cowboys trainer Jim Maurer during the process and said they were on the same page.
Owens wouldn't put a timetable on when he will catch passes again, but said he will be ready for the 2007 season.

"I am sitting here watching a lot of basketball," Owens said. "I hate the fact that we are out of the playoffs. I feel bad about the season. I am just trying to get my mind away from everything right now. But I can't wait to get back on the field."
