Steve Young Not Expected to Play

November 12, 1996|Associated Press

San Francisco quarterback Steve Young, staggered by a second concussion in three weeks, almost certainly won't play next Sunday when the 49ers play host to the Baltimore Ravens.

Young, after discussing his latest concussion with reporters, dropped another bit of news. He's getting married to Aimee Baglietto, 25, although no date has been set.

Regarding the concussion, Young was scheduled to see a specialist today, although team physician Dr. James Klint has already recommended that Young sit out at least one week.

Green Bay quarterback Bett Farve lost yet another target from his once-vaunted receiving corps when tight end Mark Chmura tore his left arch in the Packers' loss at Kansas City Sunday. He was placed in a cast Monday and will miss four to six weeks.

Also, wide receivers Terry Mickens and Anthony Morgan sprained their necks when they took hard shots from safeties in the fourth quarter, although both checked out OK on Monday.

As the Washington Redskins began the task of solving the problems of a defense that has given up 75 points and 1,091 yards over the last two games, the team learned it will be without 10-year veteran offensive right tackle Ed Simmons for about four weeks.

Simmons, who had been playing in pain for more than a month, had arthroscopic surgery Monday to repair damaged cartilage in his right knee.

Carolina's often-injured quarterback Kerry Collins came out of the Panthers' 27-17 victory over the New York Giants with seven stitches in his chin and a bruised clavicle that's hampering the mobility in his throwing shoulder. But Coach Dom Capers said that Collins' left knee, which he sprained a week earlier against Atlanta for the second time this season, wasn't damaged further.
