PHILADELPHIA (Nov. 3, 2005) -- Terrell Owens returned to practice a day after he was listed as doubtful for Philadelphia's game at Washington on Nov. 6.
Owens sprained the same ankle he had surgery on last year Oct. 30 in a loss at Denver. He was upgraded to questionable for the Eagles' matchup against the Redskins.
"He did a nice job," Eagles coach Andy Reid said. "We limited his reps, but he did a nice job when he was in there."
Reid said Owens has been spending most of his time in the trainer's room trying to get his ankle ready.
"It's a matter of getting the swelling out," Reid said. "We'll see where it's at tomorrow."
The All-Pro wide receiver has 47 catches for 763 yards and six touchdowns this season. He severely sprained his right ankle and broke his right leg at the end of last season. He missed the final two regular-season games and the NFC playoffs before returning for the Super Bowl.
Quarterback Donovan McNabb missed his second successive practice with a rib injury, but Reid said he felt "quite a bit" better. McNabb has played through a sports hernia most of this season.
