Leaf Is Back at Charger Helm

November 17, 2000|Times Wire Services

San Diego, one loss short of matching the 1975 team for the worst start in franchise history, will start Ryan Leaf at quarterback on Sunday in Denver.

The Chargers (0-10) have won only 11 times in 40 years at Mile High Stadium, but defeated the Broncos, 12-6, in last season's finale on Jan. 2. It was the Chargers' last victory.

The Chargers haven't managed consecutive victories in Denver in more than 30 years.

Vanover pleaded guilty Feb. 22 to a federal count of aiding and abetting the sale of a stolen vehicle that crossed state lines. . . . Oakland kicker Sebastian Janikowski returned to practice and might play against New Orleans after missing two weeks because of an infected left foot. . . . Buffalo running back Sammy Morris missed his second consecutive practice because of an ankle injury and is questionable for Sunday's game against Kansas City.
