Newcastle boss Allardyce cools Owen op fears
Owen, 27, has just returned to action after a lengthy lay-off with a knee injury.
He is back on the goalscoring trail, hitting the winner for Newcastle against Wigan and netting in the Carling Cup against Barnsley.
Owen also scored for England against Israel and hit a brace in the 3-0 win over Russia.
But he looked jaded in Newcastle's defeat at Pride Park and was substituted 10 minutes into the second half.
