Kevin Everett, the Buffalo Bills tight end who suffered that frightening spine injury in the first game of the season against the Denver Broncos, was back Sunday at Ralph Wilson Stadium, where he walked into the locker room. Remember, Everett's chances to ever walk again appeared to be almost zero in the first hours after his injury. He had been hurt making a tackle on a kickoff against the Broncos' Domenik Hixon during a game in Buffalo. In fact, for a while, there was concern Everett might not even survive, and the doctor who performed the surgery to repair the damage to his spine told the 25-year-old his prospects for a full recovery were bleak.

Dick Jauron was fired by the Buffalo Bills on Tuesday, when the coach ran out of time to build a contender or come up with a way to fix an offense that sputtered even with the addition of Terrell Owens . The move came two days after the Bills (3-6) fell further out of contention following a 41-17 loss at Tennessee. Defensive coordinator Perry Fewell was named interim head coach. Bills owner Ralph Wilson credited Fewell for "demonstrating excellent leadership skills," while noting the players have plenty of "confidence in him."

Art Modell's final bow as an NFL owner will not come at the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The outgoing Ravens owner was not among the 15 finalists announced yesterday for this year's induction class. According to a handful of voters, the emotions of Modell's franchise move in 1995 still outweighed the sentiment of a distinguished career coming to close. "I'm not going to characterize my feelings," said Modell, 78, who will officially sell the Ravens to Steve Bisciotti in April. "It's not fair to the other worthy finalists."

What Arazi and the rich men who own him found out is that no amount of money, plus social connections, either foreign or domestic, will assure entrance into the exclusivity of the winner's circle. Certainly, not the Kentucky Derby.But hold on. The loss is not at all distressing. To the contrary, it's a momentous gain for racing. A stimulus.The Arazi pratfall at Churchill Downs underlines again that the number of dollars invested can't be correlated to buying immortality. All kinds of drum-beating and trumpet-sounding preceded the arrival of the copper-colored colt bred in Kentucky, raised and raced in France, and supposedly destined for inclusion among the elite of all-time.

Wallace at a campaign rally in Laurel in 1972, died Sunday of cancer at Ginger Cove Retirement Community in Annapolis, where he had lived since 1990. He was 89.Judge Powers had a reputation as an efficient and no-nonsense judge. In his office in the Prince George's County Courthouse in Upper Marlboro, only a clock and a pen set were on his desk. The desk was absolutely free of paper.

As Ravens running back Willis McGahee crossed into the end zone after a 46-yard touchdown run last month in Buffalo, the doubters at Ralph Wilson Stadium fell silent. A little more than two hours later, after a season-high 114 rushing yards, McGahee was the quiet one, contemplating another defeat for the Ravens, his disappointment only partially obscured behind a pair of designer sunglasses. Bengals@Ravens Tomorrow, 4:05 p.m., chs. 13, 9, 1090 AM, 97.9 FM Line: Ravens by 3 1/2

Numerous Browns fans were spotted in the crowd, some with anti-Modell signs. Modell denied that account.

Romo remorse Say what you will about Terrell Owens' loose grip on reality, but Cowboys QB Tony Romo had no business throwing to Jason Witten on Dallas' last-gasp pass in Week 14. Bad read, bad execution, deserved result. Maybe that helps explain Romo's record of 4-8 as a starter in December and January. Wade's Waterloo? While we're on the Cowboys, this latest flare-up is on Wade Phillips' watch. The Cowboys appear to be running amok, with the wide receiver calling out the quarterback and the owner (Jerry Jones)

If I'm a Buffalo Bills fan, I'm fuming right about now. Steam is rising off me like Thurman Thomas' shaved head in sub-zero weather. I'm angrier than Cornelius Bennett each time he checks his birth certificate to make sure his parents really named him "Cornelius." I feel jilted and used. It's prom night all over again. I do my part to sell out 35-year-old Ralph Wilson Stadium, where installing cup holders in 1999 qualified as a renovation. Where a closer inspection reveals that the seat cushion I've been using actually is a sheet of ice. Where the season-ticket holders next to me are a family of penguins.
