UCLA's biggest offensive threat is on the defensive, a new concept. One of the Bruins' few proven weapons, he feels as if he has everything to prove, an even newer idea. All because in the old season, a sprained ankle and a broken offensive line ruined DeShaun Foster's 1999, not to mention his reputation. The damage has been months in the mending and still is not close to being healed. Oh, the right ankle is OK.

The Carolina Panthers lost any hope that DeShaun Foster would play again this season when it was determined Monday the running back needed surgery for a broken collarbone. The former UCLA standout was expected to sit out six to 10 weeks after he was injured in the Panthers' loss to Denver on Oct. 10. "The way it was healing -- it's a medical term and it's not doing a certain thing -- we are going to do the surgery and get it fixed," Coach John Fox said.

You are the head football coach. You make the call. It is seven days before the season opener, a statement game against the nation's No. 3-ranked team. You wake up to learn that, a couple of weeks earlier, your star tailback pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of possessing one ounce or less of marijuana. You summon the tailback to a Saturday morning meeting. There is anger, scolding, an apology. You ask if he was smoking the marijuana. He says no.

OL TUSTIN SR. Most effective running games feature a terrific lineman, and Alston led the way for DeShaun Foster. Alston's size (6-5, 310), speed and quickness make him an effective run-blocker. His outstanding footwork should allow him to learn pass-blocking quickly in college.

It is hard to imagine, watching DeShaun Foster sitting on his makeshift throne at media day, diamond earrings, diamond bracelet, sparkling smile. It is hard to envision, watching him tug at his teal and white Carolina Panther jersey, bursting out of his uniform and into the coolest Sunday in sports. But, you know, this could have happened three years ago. His crown could have been the Heisman Trophy. His championship contender could have been UCLA.

Tustin running back DeShaun Foster has narrowed his college choices to UCLA and Texas but is not planning to announce his choice until Wednesday, the first day players can sign letters of intent, his father, Al, said. "He still hasn't made up his mind except to eliminate Arizona State," Al Foster said, adding that the family took another--and unofficial--trip to UCLA over the weekend.

DeShaun Foster joined Carolina's growing list of injured offensive stars and will be out six to 10 weeks because of a broken collarbone. After remaining fairly injury-free last season en route to the NFC championship, the bumps, bruises and breaks have piled up early this year. Star receiver Steve Smith is out indefinitely because of a broken leg, top running back Stephen Davis has sat out three games after knee surgery and kick returner Rod Smart, also the No.

DeShaun Foster showed the Carolina Panthers should be just fine without Stephen Davis. Running around and through Kansas City's soft defense, Foster carried 32 times for 174 yards, including a team-record 71-yard burst, in leading the defending NFC champion Panthers to a 28-17 victory over the Chiefs on Sunday at Kansas City, Mo. The total was four yards short of the team record held by Davis, who is out indefinitely after spraining his knee in practice last week.

This was one of those times when it paid to have the last possession. And it was the New England Patriots who, until there were but four ticks left on the clock, had the ball. On the last-minute drive that won it Sunday, New England quarterback Tom Brady completed just enough passes to position Adam Vinatieri for the decisive 41-yard field goal. In a Super Bowl game that the Patriots won, 32-29, Carolina quarterback Jake Delhomme had made it 29-29 with his last touchdown pass.

If video games are any indication, DeShaun Foster thinks he should be able to help the Carolina Panthers beat the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC championship game. Foster has already gone through a preview of today's game by playing "Madden 2004" on video, pitting his Panthers against the Eagles. "We won," he said. "And I made a couple of plays." Foster might get called on to do a lot more than that if leading rusher Stephen Davis can't play.

Foster, who was the Panthers' second-round draft choice in April, tore cartilage in his left knee in an exhibition game and has not played.

St. Louis and Charlotte, N.C., are separated by about 700 miles, but on the football map, they're worlds apart. The Rams, last season's NFC champions, are one of the best teams in the NFL, while the Panthers won all of two games in 2001. The teams gained some common ground Saturday when St. Louis selected UCLA linebacker Robert Thomas in the first round and the Panthers took UCLA running back DeShaun Foster in the second round. Thomas was the 31st pick overall; Foster was the 34th.
