COLLEGE PARK - If he doesn't wind up playing in the NFL like his father, Davin Meggett says he would consider applying to the CIA. A career in the intelligence-gathering agency could work out well for Maryland's freshman running back, whose distinguishing characteristic is that he is utterly unflappable. Meggett has had to play earlier and more often than coaches expected because of the lingering shoulder injury suffered by starting tailback Da'Rel Scott against California in Week 3. He has responded with 369 yards and a 5.4 yard-per-carry average and has shown few signs of freshman stage fright.

What's new: The Michael Westbrook soap opera is heating up again as he prepares to come back from his latest knee injury. The team's most talented wide receiver and No. 1 draft pick out of Colorado in 1995 has taken some heat around Washington lately for what some consider a lack of toughness by not playing with pain. He missed five games with knee and ankle injuries in his rookie year and has already been out of action three games this season with two torn posterior cruciate ligaments in his left knee.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The New York Giants lost two players yesterday: Mark Collins for four weeks with a sprained right ankle and Dave Meggett for probably one day because he is unhappy with his contract and did not show up for work.Collins, the starting left cornerback, hurt his ankle against the Philadelphia Eagles in the opening game of the season and then reinjured it in last Sunday's 28-7 victory over the Dallas Cowboys. He was placed on injured reserve, which means he must sit out at least four weeks.

Vaughn Hebron completed his improbable journey from free-agent running back to a spot on the Philadelphia Eagles' roster yesterday.When the Eagles open their NFL season Sunday at home against the Phoenix Cardinals, Hebron, who starred at Cardinal Gibbons High, will be the backup tailback behind Herschel Walker.And Siran Stacy, the Eagles' top draft pick from a year ago, will be gone.That's how cut-down day in Philadelphia went. Hebron, undrafted out of Virginia Tech last spring, made the team while Stacy, a second-round pick in 1992, was cut. In the end, Hebron's preseason performance held more luster than Stacy's draft history.

ASHBURN, Va. -- Dan Reeves' list of the toughest players he's been around is a short one."I thought Walt Garrison was as tough a football player as I'd ever been around, and Dave Meggett falls into that same category. He's as tough pound for pound as any player I've ever been around. He's a guy you can count on every time we ask him to do something," the New York Giants coach said yesterday.What the Giants will count on Meggett doing Sunday is to start at running back in place of Rodney Hampton against the Washington Redskins.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- It was as if, in one exhilarating moment, Dave Meggett had returned to the New York Giants. After three weeks of everyone wondering where he had been and when he would return, there was Meggett flying in under a punt and weaving from one sideline to the other for a 56-yard touchdown run.Meggett's return, which ended up bringing the Giants even, 18-18, with the Detroit Lions in the fourth quarter, looked like a game-breaker, a...

Reading Time: Two Minutes.How 'bout this: a proposed football team here having a revolving set of nicknames (which would certainly help in the sale of paraphernalia)? Or, how 'bout different names at home and on the road since the uniforms are dissimilar?Meanwhile, the surname should be Maryland, not Baltimore, out of respect to the one picking up most of the tab for a stadium.* You want a few smiles, Bunky, rush out and gobble up the video "Bad Golf Made Easy." It's a hilarious and irreverent tribute to the weekend hacker starring Leslie Nielsen of "Airplane," and "Naked Gun" fame.
