Cal State Fullerton linebacker Clarence Siler has shown a remarkable ability to overcome physical problems this year. In August, just 3 1/2 months after suffering gunshot wounds to the shoulder and wrist, Siler was training with the football team. When he injured his ankle against Fresno State Sept. 29, doctors predicted Siler would miss three or four games. He missed two. "I'm a pretty quick healer," he said. Siler wishes he could also heal his spirit.

Just last Thursday, Cal State Fullerton linebacker Clarence Siler was saying how healthy he felt despite playing this season with a bullet lodged near one of his ribs. "I'm in tip-top shape," the senior said. "I've never been in better shape." Saturday night, Siler was wondering if he would ever play football again. Midway through the third quarter of Fresno State's 38-3 victory over the Titans, a Bulldog player blocked Siler from behind, injuring Siler's right leg.

With a bullet lodged dangerously close to his lung and a police investigation looming, Clarence Siler's football career hangs in the balance. Siler, the Cal State Fullerton defensive end who is recovering from gunshot wounds incurred during a brawl last week, is listed in good condition at the UC Irvine Medical Center. But he is having trouble breathing because of the bullet that struck him in the shoulder, and his left thumb and index finger are numb because of a bullet that hit his wrist.
