ASHBURN, Va. - Washington Redskins running back Stephen Davis hasn't missed a game in nearly two seasons, and he's not about to buck the trend. Davis vowed yesterday that his injured right knee won't prevent him from starting for the Redskins when they play host to the New Orleans Saints at 1 p.m. Sunday at FedEx Field. "No doubt," Davis said of his playing status against New Orleans. "Right now, I've just got to go through the pain and get rehab on it and do my best." Davis sprained a ligament in his right knee Sunday during Washington's 31-14 win against the Tennessee Titans.

CARLISLE, Pa. -- Martin Mayhew got the message yesterday, but not Mark Rypien.The message is that it's futile to hold out and reject an offer from Washington Redskins owner Jack Kent Cooke, who let John Riggins sit out the entire 1980 season in a contract dispute.After missing just one day of camp, Mayhew, a starting cornerback last year, signed a two-year deal and will start practicing today. He took the Redskins' offer of about $300,000 the first year and $350,000 the second year along with a good incentive package.

With the college draft two months away, the Washington Redskins have narrowed the list of candidates for their first-round pick to four players.After judging all the top prospects at the annual scouting combine meeting in Indianapolis last week, general manager Charley Casserly said that four players stood out.Because the Redskins have the third pick, they figure to select one of the four players with their first-round pick.In no particular order, Casserly's top-four list has quarterbacks Trent Dilfer of Fresno State and Heath Shuler of Tennessee, defensive lineman Dan Wilkinson of Ohio State and running back Marshall Faulk of San Diego State.

By Vito Stellino * BENGALS: Paul Brown, famed for fashioning the Cleveland Browns and Cincinnati into winners, was remembered at his funeral as a man who got his greatest joy from coaching high school players in his hometown of Massillon, Ohio. Some 200 people attended the service in tiny St. Timothy's Episcopal Church in the town where Brown said his career truly began. Another 200, many wearing the black and orange of both the Massillon High School Tigers and the Cincinnati Bengals, gathered outside to watch Brown's casket being carried into the church. * PATRIOTS: Running back John Stephens, who has held out for two weeks, said he would rather play for another team and formally asked to be traded. The Patriots offered to up his $450,000 salary from a year ago to $750,000, but Stephens wants $1.1 million | August 8, 1991
Offensive guard Joe Jacoby suffered severe back spasms during the Washington Redskins' intrasquad scrimmage last night at Carlisle High School and will likely be sidelined about a week.That means he'll miss Saturday night's exhibition game against the New England Patriots. Mark Adickes and Russ Grimm will fill in for him at left guard.Quarterback Mark Rypien (stiff back) and running back Ricky Ervins (bruised thigh) were held out of the scrimmage, but are expected to play against the Patriots.

The Toronto Argonauts, who signed Raghib "Rocket" Ismail last year to catch the ball, are interested in getting Mark Rypien to throw it to him.Mike McCarthy, the general manager for the CFL team, said he talked yesterday with Ken Staninger, Rypien's agent, and added: "Last year, we got the cake. This would give us the icing."Staninger confirmed he had talks yesterday with McCarthy and Charley Casserly, the general manager of the Washington Redskins, and said Rypien would keep his options open.

ASHBURN, Va. -- It was damage control time for Mark Rypien yesterday.The Washington Redskins quarterback apologized for criticizing fans Sunday after they booed him during introductions before the game against the Atlanta Falcons at RFK Stadium. However, he didn't seem to be apologizing to the fans who did the booing."Ninety percent of the fans of this whole area are as die-hard a fans as I've ever seen," Rypien said. "I apologize to those and the people I might have overreacted to."Earlier, during his weekly paid appearance on WRC-TV (Channel 4)

The struggling Washington Redskins suffered another major setback yesterday with the news that defensive lineman Charles Mann will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his left knee tomorrow.The surgery, which will be performed in Birmingham, Ala., by Dr. Charles Andrews, will be Mann's eighth knee operation, including six on his right knee."It's not good news," coach Richie Petitbon said. "Charles is one of our best players. You can't lose a guy like that and not be affected. It just means our healthy guys are going to have to play their tails off."

There is nothing flashy about Mark Rypien. Not in the way he runs the Washington Redskins offense, not in the way he delivers the deep pass, not in the way he deals with the media.For most of the four seasons that he has quarterbacked the Redskins, Rypien has been workmanlike and erratic and an easy target for his detractors.He may not be perfect, but after six weeks this season he is unbeaten. And only one other quarterback in the NFL -- New Orleans' Bobby Hebert -- can say that."He's done a heckuva job," says Redskins coach Joe Gibbs.

"You can't beat somebody with nobody," is an old saying in politics.With that in mind, it's probably appropriate that the Washington Redskins are the hometown team for the nation's capital.The Redskins don't appear to be a great team this season. They're not being touted as a team to beat because they've lost rTC coach Joe Gibbs, linebacker Wilber Marshall and wide receiver Gary Clark to free agency and Jim Lachey to injury.But the Redskins are somebody.They're a solid, well-coached team that has a history of being tough in years when there's nobody to beat them.

The foundation has been set. Now comes the task of constructing the season.For two weeks, the Washington Redskins have gone through the basic practice sessions that start to form the team.After taking two days off, they resume practice tomorrow and start the grind of 20 games in 22 weekends -- four exhibition games, 16 regular-season games and two bye weeks.It's dangerous to form early conclusions, but in the year in which they've made more changes since 1981, when Bobby Beathard won a power struggle with Jack Pardee and persuaded owner Jack Kent Cooke to hire Joe Gibbs, the Redskins appear headed in the right direction.

SAN FRANCISCO -- Mark Rypien kept using the words "frustrated" and "frustration" over and over during his post-game news conference yesterday."All of us are frustrated," the Washington Redskins quarterback said after the 20-13 playoff loss to the San Francisco 49ers at muddy Candlestick Park.It was almost a replay of the 28-10 loss to the 49ers in the playoffs two years ago, when the Redskins got inside the 15 three times in the second half and Rypien not only couldn't get any points, but also was intercepted three times, twice in the end zone.

SAN FRANCISCO -- The Redskins will wish they hadn't made it so close. They will wish Steve Young hadn't started fumbling the ball all over the field, that the 49ers had just gone and finished off the complete and utter strumming that was the first 35 minutes.It would have been so much easier on the soul. So much easier to reconcile. No what-ifs. No living forever with the knowledge that they had the Niners in big trouble, huge trouble, and literally fumbled away their chance.But they're always going to wonder.

ASHBURN, Va. -- What does eight minus seven equal?The answer is one frustrating season for the Washington Redskins.When the Redskins went 14-2 in the regular season last year on their way to the Super Bowl, the Redskins had eight players who were named to the Pro Bowl squad.Now that they're 9-6 and need help to make the playoffs, they had just one player -- linebacker Wilber Marshall -- who was named to this year's NFC squad yesterday.It was the first time since Joe Gibbs' first season in 1981 when kick returner Mike Nelms made it that they had only one player named.
