Indianapolis Colt fullback Craig Heyward was alert and talking after a 12-hour operation that failed to remove all of a benign brain tumor that was blurring his vision. Heyward, listed in serious but stable condition Friday, is expected to remain in intensive care at Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis for several days. The shrimp-sized tumor, known as a chordoma, was entwined with vital brain structures, said neurosurgeon Dr. Troy Payner.

It's springtime! Flowers are blooming, birds are chirping, and John Robinson is head over heels in love with another questionable prospect. First, it was Dieter Brock, then Mike Schad and Donald Evans, now the talented, but obese and immature Craig Heyward. To hear Robinson gush about Heyward's talents while he blissfully ignores his liabilities is like listening to a teen-ager in love. BILL SEIBEL La Verne

The New Orleans Saints, who play host to the Raiders Monday night, announced that injured fullback Craig Heyward has been suspended without pay for the rest of the season by Coach Jim Mora, who said the move had nothing to do with assault charges brought by two women. "He has been suspended for the rest of this season for a series of violations of club policy," Mora said.

Jeff George and Terance Mathis put a damper on Herschel Walker's return to Georgia. George threw for 364 yards and combined with Mathis on two touchdown passes Sunday, giving Atlanta a 28-21 victory over Philadelphia despite a 91-yard touchdown run by Walker, who won a Heisman Trophy 12 years ago at Georgia. Walker's run, longest from scrimmage in the NFL since Bo Jackson went 92 yards for the Raiders five years ago, gave the Eagles a 14-13 lead 2:45 into the second half.

When it comes to carrying the bulk of the New Orleans offense, Craig Heyward is certainly built for the job. But Coach Jim Mora has never been inclined to give him that opportunity because he felt the fourth-year running back was too heavy to handle such a heavy load. Near the end of last season, Mora issued yet another public reprimand concerning Heyward's inability to trim a few pounds, hinting that he would be both healthier and more effective if he weighed closer to 250 than 300.

Craig Heyward is beginning to look like the kind of running back the New Orleans Saints hoped he would be when they made him their first-round draft pick in 1988. Heyward, who has been in the doghouse for most of his three seasons with the Saints, turned in his second consecutive 100-yard rushing game Sunday, including a 47-yard touchdown run to lead the Saints to a 35-7 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. "He's the same guy he was 2 1/2 years ago," Saint Coach Jim Mora said.
