Bills corner injures arm tangling with Owens

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — Bills starting cornerback Terrence McGee hurt his right arm when he tumbled to the turf while defending receiver Terrell Owens during a voluntary minicamp practice Wednesday.

McGee did not return after entering the trainer's room, and coach Dick Jauron did not have an injury update.

During team drills, McGee was shadowing Owens when they went up for a pass. Owens initially caught the ball but had it ripped out by McGee. Owens partially landed on the cornerback when they fell.

Jets: Running back Thomas Jones rejoined his teammates after boycotting six organized team activities and a voluntary minicamp while in a contract dispute. Jones, who led the AFC with 1,312 yards rushing last season, is entering the third year of a four-year, $20 million deal, which was front-loaded with $13.1 million over the first two seasons. He's scheduled to make $900,000 in base salary this season. … The team was awarded tight end Martrez Milner off waivers from the Giants.

Saints: Free agent wide receiver D'Juan Woods was signed, and quarterback Patrick Cowan was waived.

Appeal for drug test: The players association filed its notice to appeal a judge's ruling in the case of five players facing suspensions over positive drug tests. The union wants the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to reconsider a judge's dismissal last week of a lawsuit filed by the union on behalf of Vikings defensive tackles Kevin Williams and Pat Williams, and three Saints — Charles Grant and Will Smith, plus Deuce McAllister, who was released after last season.

Pit bull attack: Steelers linebacker James Harrison's young son has been released from a Pittsburgh hospital after being bitten on the thigh by his father's pit bull, Harrison's agent said. The agent, William Parise, says James Harrison III, 2, is doing fine, and the linebacker wants to find a place for the dog so it won't be euthanized.
