Harrah Enjoys Changing of the Guard

August 08, 1986|CHRIS DUFRESNE | Times Staff Writer

Passing on knowledge is just part of the game.

"They showed me so I'm showing them," Harrah said. "I'm thankful to have guys like that around me. You don't know how important those guys are until it's too late. It's like your parents."

Ram Notes Still no word on the Rams and quarterback Doug Flutie. His agent, Bob Woolf, said Thursday that he still is waiting for an official release from New Jersey Generals owner Donald Trump. When he gets the release, Woolf said he will contact the Rams. Flutie, an 11th-round draft pick by the Rams in 1985, is expected to be released from the $8 million, six-year contract he signed with Trump to play in the United States Football League. . . . Eric Dickerson missed Thursday's practice because of tight hamstring muscles. Quarterback Dieter Brock, who bruised his left knee in Tuesday night's loss to the Houston Oilers, won't be able to practice until next Monday. Linebacker Jim Collins, who aggravated a pinched nerve in his left shoulder in the Houston game, will be examined by Dr. Robert Watkins today. . . . First-year tackle Hank Goebel of Cal State Fullerton likely will be placed on injured reserve because of injuries to his knee and elbow. . . . Ram Coach John Robinson was impressed with No. 1 draft choice, tackle Mike Schad, who completed his second day of practice Thursday. "He's such a great physical learner," Robinson said. "You know, if he had to learn a new dance step, he could do it fast, whereas it might take me a month.". . . Wide receiver Ron Brown, who sprained his left wrist in the Oiler game, should be back at practice today. . . . Robinson said that Dick Coury, the Rams' quarterback coach, probably would be calling the team's offensive plays this season. "We're trying to be a more wide-open football team this year," Robinson said. . . . Because of the possibly career-ending neck injury to Gary Green, the Rams are in the market for a cornerback. "We're not looking for an All-Pro," Robinson said. "We're just looking for a solid NFL man. . . . No word on the contract negotiations of linebacker Mel Owens. His agent, Phil Closius, said he spoke with the Rams last Friday and was told the team would call back on Monday. Closius said they never did. Owens and receiver Henry Ellard are the two remaining Ram holdouts.
