Owusu (concussion) did not practice Thursday, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports. Owusu missed three weeks earlier in the season with a knee injury and now will need to pass concussion protocol in order to play in Week 8. The 25-year-old recorded two catches for 25 yards on four targets against the Patriots in Week 7, so it remains to be seen how effective Owusu might be even if he was cleared to play.
Owusu (concussion) did not practice Wednesday. Owusu has a history of concussions, which clouds the wideout's Week 8 status, in the wake of his return to action this past Sunday against the Patriots, a contest in which Owusu caught two of four targets for 25 yards.
Owusu (knee) caught two passes for 25 yards Sunday against the Patriots. Owusu had a 21-yard reception to highlight his day, but he was otherwise quiet.

In the three games in which he's appeared this season, he's averaging slightly over four targets.
