Simpson for nine years, only to realize the chase was much more exciting than the trophy. Thomas needs 66 yards to surpass Simpson as the Buffalo Bills career rushing leader, and he will have a chance of reaching the milestone Sunday against the New York Jets. Simpson will not be on the field at Giants Stadium to congratulate him. "We're still good friends," Thomas said. "I haven't spoken to him since that period of time, but I know if I do get the record, he'll be there. He won't (actually) be there, but." But he'll be there in spirit was the unspoken thought. Thomas has felt like he was chasing a ghost since 1994, when Simpson was charged in the slayings of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman. Simpson has not visited the Bills locker room since, something he had done every season for years while working for NBC. "I would love to have him there with me breaking the record," Thomas said. "But I know it's not going to happen. I'm sure that whenever I do break it, he'll be aware of it." Rams' players meet ST. LOUIS — In the wake of one of the worst performances in recent franchise history, the St. Louis Rams figured it was time to sit down and sort out their frustrations. Alone. Coach Rich Brooks and his staff did not participate in the meeting Monday at the team's training facility in suburban Maryland Heights. After an opening-game win over Cincinnati, the Rams have lost five straight, including a humiliating 45-13 loss to sec- ond-year Carolina on Sunday. "We were missing that fourth gear," safety Toby Wright said Wednesday, when the media was told of the meeting. "It's a matter of us looking in the mirror. We got some things off our chests." Players refused to discuss specifics, but said the meeting addressed concerns that had been present all season. "There were some things lingering, things that are detrimental to the team," Wright said. "We cleared the air on some things that were bothering people," said wide receiver Isaac Bruce. "Hopefully it's over with." The proof of whether the meeting worked will come Sunday, when the Rams host Jacksonville (3-4), Brooks said. Hobbled Marino practices DA VIE, Fla. — With a pained expression, Dan Marino admitted Wednesday that his right ankle still hurts. The concession came after Marino practiced for the first time since breaking his ankle Sept. 23 against Indianapolis. He participated in about 25 percent of the workout, throwing with no defenders, running a few seven-on- seven plays and then limping to the locker room. Marino has yet to test the ankle at full speed. "There's pain every time," he said. "It felt all right. It doesn't feel great. I'm making progress. It's going to be a day-to-day thing." Marino's return to practice occurred sooner than expected, He may dress as the third quarterback Sunday when Miami (4-2) plays at Philadelphia (4-2), but Craig Erickson will likely make his third consecutive start filling in for Marino. "I will not make a decision until right prior to gametime," coach Jimmy 4ohnson said. SPORTS DIGEST Cycling Celtics The Associated Press Boston Celtics players Greg Minor (left) and Steve Hamer work out on stationary bicycles during a Celtics practice Wednesday as the team prepares for the upcoming season. Auto racing CHARLOTTE, N.C. — General Motors Corp. has landed some'proven winners — Joe Gibbs and Bobby Labonte — to help restore the Pontiac Grand Prix to prominence on the Winston Cup circuit. Gibbs, who now fields Chevrolet Monte Carlos for Labonte on stock car racing's top series, will switch to Pontiacs for the 1997 Winston Cup season. "A lot of research went into this, and we think we went about things the right way. I'm excited," Gibbs said Wednesday night at his team's racing complex in Charlotte. "We would not have done this if we didn't think we could win." GM officials are hoping some of the touch Gibbs has demonstrated in two sports will rub off on the Grand Prix, which has been unable to stay competitive with the Chevrolets and Ford Thunderbirds. Boxing TOKYO — Tommy Morrison, the HTV-infected heavyweight, will return to the ring next month for a fight in Japan, a newspaper reported Thursday. Morrison will fight an undetermined opponent near Tokyo on Nov. 3, the mass-circulation daily Asahi Shimbun reported, quoting unidentified planners for the fight's sponsor. Planners said the fight will be an undercard for the George Forman- Crawford Grimsley bout scheduled for Nov. 3, the Asahi reported. Morrison's promoter, Tony Holden, said there's been no decision for a fight in Tokyo. Football JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — The new contract that Florida coach Steve Spurrier agreed to in February is now final, and it's about as prolific as his Fun 'N' Gun offense. Spurrier will likely end up earning more than $1 million this year with bonuses, and the seven-year contract gets higher every season, according to the Florida Times-Union, which obtained a copy of the contract. Spurrier, who made a little more than $700,000 last year in leading the Gators to their first third straight Southeastern Conference title, will make $940,810 this year. He also gets 12 prime tickets to all home games and "medium- price" cars for himself and his wife. Bonuses in-, elude $12,370 for winning the SEC championship, $18,555 for going to a major bowl and $50,000 for winning the national championship. "His compensation is very deserving," said athletic director Jeremy Foley. "Some folks say it's too much money. But that's where he belongs in terms of the market and what's out there." Spurrier is 6713-1 in his seventh season as head coach. LOS ANGELES — Former Rams defensive back Darryl Henley pleaded guilty Wednesday to federal charges that he tried to hire a hitman to kiU the judge in his drug-trafficking trial and his former girlfriend, who was a key witness in the case. Henley, 30, admitted soliciting the murder of U.S. District Judge Gary Taylor and Tracy Donaho, a one-time Rams cheerleader. Henley faces up to 41 years and three months in prison for the drug and solicitation cases combined. Henley, whose younger brother, Eric, also entered a guilty plea Wednesday to federal charges stemming from the most recent case, was scheduled to go on trial Nov. 5. He will be sentenced Jan. 13. Soccer GUATEMALA CITY — Fans trying to squeeze into a soccer stadium stampeded at a World Cup qualifying match Wednesday night. A firefighter said 75 people were trampled to death, and hospitals said hundreds were injured. Bodies of men, women and children were lined up next to the track at Mateo Flores National Stadium after the match was suspended. The accident occurred about an hour before a qualifying match between the Guatemalan and Costa Rican national teams. About 45,000 people, including the presidents of the two countries, packed the stands. Too many tickets were apparently sold for the match. Fans who were not allowed in tried to pass through a concrete causeway about 15 yards long and three yards-wide into the stadium, firefighters said.
