PHILADELPHIA -- Terrell Owens was involved in a locker-room fight with former teammate Hugh Douglas a few days before the All-Pro wideout was suspended indefinitely without pay by the Philadelphia Eagles.
On his radio show Sunday night, Douglas said no punches were landed and he didn't discuss details of the incident.
"It's not something you're proud of so why should I glorify it?" Douglas said on WIP-AM.
Owens was not with Philadelphia on Sunday night for its 17-10 loss to the Washington Redskins in Landover, Md. Eagles president Joe Banner said coach Andy Reid would meet with the player in the coming week.
"Andy will basically figure out where we go from here," Banner said during an impromptu news conference on the Eagles sideline before kickoff. "He indicated to T.O. that he'd talk to him later this week and give him a more definitive status report."
Banner wouldn't answer questions about how long the suspension would last, whether he expected Owens to play for Philadelphia again or what the specific reason was for the punishment. But Banner did say the suspension is without pay. Owens is scheduled to make $3.5 million in base salary this season, so the suspension would cost him more than $200,000 per game.
"There's an accumulation of events culminating with a series of things last week, including the very public interview that he did," Banner said. "I think there's a long list of things, some of which you know about and some of which aren't public."
Owens was suspended Saturday, two days after he criticized the organization for not publicly recognizing his 100th career touchdown catch. In an interview with ESPN.com on Thursday, Owens took another shot at quarterback Donovan McNabb, saying the Eagles would be better off with Green Bay's Brett Favre.
Owens apologized Friday in a statement and later on his weekly radio show, but the damage already was done.
ESPN.com reported the fight between Owens and Douglas started when Douglas entered the team's training room Wednesday and said: "I know there are people in here faking injuries."
Owens missed Wednesday's practice with an ankle injury, but returned to the field the next day. Owens and Douglas previously got into a verbal confrontation in training camp. A three-time Pro Bowl defensive end during two stints with the Eagles, Douglas was released before the season started. He remained with the organization as a team "ambassador," and also does radio and television work.
Rookie Reggie Brown replaced Owens in the starting lineup against Washington.
The collective bargaining agreement states that a player can be suspended for up to four games without pay for conduct detrimental to the team. However, the Eagles could decide to pay Owens to stay home the rest of the season.
