Also in the Washington game, Harold Green and Craig Taylor provided the first productive efforts of the year by a Cincinnati running back other than James Brooks.

"Then, when everybody's back and healthy, maybe I'll do well enough to stay up for the entire season. "When I came here, I knew they had five good corners, quality guys, veteran guys. All I was asking was a chance . . . coach (Dick) LeBeau kept telling me it's a long season, keep practicing, keep my mind in it, something's going to happen and I'd be in there." It did, and he is. Mitchell Price hurt a knee, Jones broke his arm and Carl Carter was lost to Tampa Bay. "What I have to do now," Fain said, "is play good technique, don't be nervous, be patient and just play. After all, I go up against some of the best receivers in the NFL every day." ONE MOVE: Activating safety Barney Bussey from injured reserve probably will be the Bengals' only personnel move this week. There was no formal announcement Friday. The club has until 1 p.m. today to make any moves. While the evaluation of Ickey Woods continued, offensive lineman Kirk Scrafford wasn't expecting a decision in his favor. "I don't think so," Scrafford said Friday. "Everybody's healthy." SLIMMING DOWN: Strong safety David Fulcher, whose weight is closely-though-quietly monitored by team management, reported Friday that he weighed 232. He said it was his lowest weight since training camp began. The Bengals consider Fulcher's ideal weight to be 228. KNOX COULD ECLIPSE BROWN: With his club's 31-3 victory against Indianapolis last Sunday, Seahawks coach Chuck Knox had his 166th regular-season victory, equaling Paul Brown on the all-time list. Including all games is difficult. Brown won 52 in the All-America Conference, which the NFL doesn't recognize, and still leads Knox when NFL playoff games are considered, 171-169. "I have so much respect for what Paul Brown accomplished and for Paul Brown the man," Knox said. "I grew up in western Pennsylvania and I'm very familiar with Paul Brown and Massillon, Ohio. "It's a great honor even to be associated with a man of Paul Brown's stature. "The people who should get the credit for the wins are the players and the assistant coaches, but I'm pleased to be connected in this way with the late Paul Brown." $10735 For 24 mos. 28509 24 mos. closed end lease with 20 ol MSRP Down tan & title, 1 st pyml & sec. deposit ol $250 down "JUST A BLOCK AND k BRIDGE FROM DOWNTOWN C1NTI." five carries, including two for Eric Ball touchdowns, and Green had 40 yards on nine carries. Asked Friday who would start alongside Brooks against Seattle on Sunday, running backs coach Jim Anderson suggested, "Ask Sam." But coach Sam Wyche, though agreeing to a brief interruption of his new limited-interviews policy, withheld the answer. "We're going to keep that one to ourselves," he said. Wyche didn't say it was necessarily related to the No. 2 running back position, but he added that the Bengals have "some different things in our game plan" for the Seahawks. "There are some things we haven't done this year," he said. "But we don't want Seattle reading about what they are in our local newspapers." FAIN A REALIST: He passed his first test with an impressive flourish, but Richard Fain doesn't think that will count for much Sunday against Seattle. "I'm a rookie with one game's experience," he said Friday. "Who knows? I might be up against Brian Blades some, and he's maybe their best receiver. I'm sure they would enjoy a match between an inexperienced corner and a veteran wide receiver." That was essentially the Washington Redskins' thinking two weeks ago when Fain entered the game after Rod Jones' injury. All he did was intercept a Mark Rypien pass meant for Ricky Sanders at the goal line. Barely 48 hours earlier, Fain and Fernandus Vinson had been part of the Bengals' developmental squad, subject to call by any team. Fain will be part of the "nickel" defense against Seattle, and Vinson figures to play if six defensive backs are needed.

For the first time m years, not Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews. The two organizations, which together define the rules of play throughout the world, made the announcement Friday. The rules changes go into effect Jan. 1. Rules prohibiting a player from touching the ground in a hazard were liberalized to remove penalties for grounding a club in order to prevent falling or because of a fall as long as the golfer isn't testing the hazard or improving the lie of the ball. In addition, the Rules of Golf now will officially define the line of play or the line of putt, resulting in a prohibition on tapping down spike marks around the hole. Golfers still will be able to repair ball marks. Another significant rules change provides free relief for a ball lost in an immovable obstruction, such as a shed, provided there's reasonable evidence the ball was lost in the obstruction. Previously, the lost ball rule applied. In other action, the USGA and R&A: Amended the club rule to prohibit borrowing any club selected for play by another person playing the course. Removed the penalty for playing a stroke on the green while another ball is in motion, as long as it was that player's turn to play. Limited adjustability in the design of putters and disallows any adjustment during a stipulated round. Dent overwhelms course CLEMMONS, N.C. - Jim Dent, the biggest hitter among golf's over-50 set, simply overpowered the course in an awesome display that helped him to a share of the first-round lead Friday in the richest event on the Senior PGA Tour. Dent scored an eagle-3 on the 17th hole, drove the green on a par-4, played the par-5's four under and did not make a bogey in his 5-under-par 67. But it was more than a display of raw power. Dent kept it under control, too. "I hit 17 greens, and that's pretty good for me," said Dent, who was tied for the lead with 56-year-old journeyman Al Kelley in the $1.5 million Vantage Championship. Jim Colbert, left-hander Bob Charles and Ben Smith were another stroke behind at 68, four under par on the 6,680-yard Tan-glewood course. McCallister shoots 64 SAN ANTONIO Even with family matters on his mind, Blaine McCallister concentrated on the Texas Open Friday and shot a 64 to grab a 4-stroke lead after two rounds with a 10-under-par 130. Four strokes back at 134 were Wayne Grady, Bob Gilder, John Cook, Brian Claar and Bill Britton. Keith Clearwater, who led at 7-under after the first round, ballooned to a 2-over-par 72 at Oak Hills Country Club for a 5-under-par 135. Nine others, including Ben Crenshaw and Ryder Cup team member Paul Azinger, also were at 135. Weighing heavily on McCallis-ter's mind were the medical problems of his fiancee, Claudia, who has a rare illness that is causing bleeding in the blood vessels of her eyes. On Thursday, she was hospitalized in Jacksonville, Fla., because of the illness. "She's a tough woman, and she means a lot to me and she makes golf look secondary," he said. "She's tough, and she makes me tough." Olazabal eight under par STUTTGART, Germany Jose Maria Olazabal of Spain fired an 8-under-par 64 Friday to move two strokes into the lead after two rounds of the German Masters. Olazabal reached the 36-hole mark with a 135. Malcolm McKenzie of England took over second place with a 67. Tom Watson followed an opening round 73 with a 69, and Hale Irwin shot his second straight 72. Ammaccapane takes lead CAIRNS, Australia American Danielle Ammaccapane fired a 4-under-par 69 Friday and took a three-stroke lead after the first round of the Daikyo World Championship of Women's Golf. one No. 1 pick is having an early impact. The best effort of the season was a 76-yard kickoff return by Kansas City's Harvey Williams (No. 21 overall) that set up a touchdown in a 14-13 over San Diego last week. 02 mm Consider what happened just last week: Antone Davis, who the Ea Eagles go with Goebel ENQUIRER NEWS SERVICES PHILADELPHIA Brad Goebel is getting his chance. The Philadelphia Eagles, their playoff hopes hinging at least partly on how they bridge the absence of Jim McMahon in the coming weeks, turned Friday to the rookie who arrived this year as a free agent and won a roster spot as the No. 3 quarterback. Now, with Randall Cunningham out for the season and McMahon out probably until the Oct. 24 game against San Francisco, Goebel learned Friday he would get his first NFL start Sunday for the Eagles (3-2) at Tampa Bay (0-5). "To have a free agent make a ballclub, that's big news in itself. And then to have one start, I never would have expected it," Goebel said. "It's a great opportunity for me and it's one that I'll cherish." Chiefs star gets bad news KANSAS CITY, Mo. A second opinion on the injured left knee of Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Albert Lewis may keep the All-Pro sidelined for three more weeks. What originally was thought by Chiefs doctors to be a bruise was diagnosed by a New York physician as a torn posterior cruciate ligament, Lewis said Thursday. Packers tab Kiel GREEN BAY, Wis. Blair Kiel will start at quarterback Sunday in place of the injured Don Majkowski when the Green Bay Packers play the Dallas Cowboys in Milwaukee. "It doesn't appear Don is going to be ready to play, certainly," coach Lindy Infante said Friday. gles got by trading away next year's No. 1 pick, allowed two sacks Monday night, got called twice for holding and once for illegal procedure. good players. But the agents hold them out of camp for outlandish sums and they miss so much that they rarely do anything the first year." Well, sometimes they explode right away see Barry Sanders, Richmond Webb, Mark Carrier and others. But the point is well-made: Carrier, last year's defensive rookie star, signed on draft day and had an immediate impact. Of this year's crew, the steadiest player is probably Leonard Russell of New England, who leads the Patriots with 271 rushing yards for a 3.7 average. He's starting because veteran John Stephens was a holdout. Mike Pritchard leads Atlanta with 19 catches, but Herman Moore of Detroit has one catch and Alvin Harper of Dallas has two. And Randal Hill has five catches but not for Miami, the team that drafted him. He was shipped off to Phoenix for a No. 1 next year. Some are working in slowly, like the overall No. 1, Dallas' Russell Maryland, a backup defensive tackle; the late-reporting Todd Lyght of the Los Angeles Rams, who's a nickel back, and Cincinnati's Alfred Williams, who's an outside linebacker. Others are injured, like the second pick, safety Eric Turner of Cleveland, and the Cardinals' Eric Swann, who had arthroscopic surgery twice on a knee injured in minicamp and was just activated last week. Jarrod Bunch, the Giants' No. 1, caught his second pass Sun day and had it stolen by Dallas' Ray Horton, who returned it for a touchdown.
