Ochocino vs TO leaving early before the end of the first half

They both went to the locker room towards the end of the first half and missed the last-second hail mary play.

According to one report:

"We had [Ochocinco] go in for an IV, which is kind of normal for him any time we are on defense — particularly early in the season," Lewis said. "Later in the year we don’t have to do that. But the doctors want to get him and get him out so he’s ready to go at the start of the second half. And Terrell went in to get work done and get looked at and so we had the other guys ready to go."

However, Joe Reedy reported:

Terrell Owens and Chad Ochocinco both left the field before the half was over – Ochocinco for an IV and Owens because he thought the half was over.

I'm inclined to believe that Ochocinco went inside with the permission of the coaching staff (didn't he have an escort in?), so I don't blame him for not being there, but I suspect Marvin Lewis is diplomatically covering for TO making a mistake. So, what do you think? Not a big deal? They're both bums? Just TO? The coaches are continuing with the Bengals tradition of mismanagement of seemingly minor details?
