The Oakland Raiders will open training camp next month in Napa and Don Mosebar will miss it. But he won't miss it. That is, he won't be there, but he won't mind. "That's the thing I really won't miss--training camp," he says. "That was always my least favorite time of the year." He doesn't figure he will miss what follows training camp, either, the NFL season. He didn't last fall, he says.

The Raiders left for Tokyo without two unsigned veteran players, center Don Mosebar and defensive end Scott Davis. Davis, who made $250,000 in 1990, is coming off his best season, during which he recorded a personal-best 10 sacks. Mosebar, who made the Pro Bowl last season, earned $585,000 in 1990.

Don Mosebar always knew that a career-threatening injury could be only a play away. In his 13 seasons at center for the Raiders--he had started 93 consecutive games--after eight as an offensive lineman in high school and college, Mosebar had seen plenty of injuries that put players out of football. On Aug. 3, in a morning scrimmage against the Dallas Cowboys at Austin, Tex., it was his turn. Whether football has ended for him is still up in the air.

The Raiders selected center Don Mosebar as captain of the offensive unit, linebacker Jerry Robinson as defensive captain and center Dan Turk as special teams captain. Turk replaced Stefon Adams, last year's special teams captain, who was signed by the Cleveland Browns after being waived by the Raiders. Wide receiver Willie Gault was a member of a three-man team that set a track record Tuesday in the National Bobsled Push Championship at Lake Placid, N.Y.

Oakland Raider center Don Mosebar underwent three hours of emergency surgery Thursday at the University of Texas Medical Center as doctors worked to save his left eye. Mosebar, 33, had a finger jammed into his eye during a morning practice-field drill with the Dallas Cowboys at Austin, Tex. Trainers attended Mosebar and spectators noticed a profusion of blood. He was taken off the field in a golf cart and immediately to surgery. "They saved the eye," Coach Mike White said.

Who would you say has the record for the most completed passes on the Raiders in recent history? Jeff Hostetler? Don't be silly! He's been here less than a year and he throws, what, 30 passes a game? Tops 35? My guy might have that many in a quarter. He has never thrown an interception, and, as a matter of fact, when he throws an incompletion, it's headline stuff. He completes a pass every play. He's the only passer in the game who never gets booed. Give up? Well, how about Don Mosebar? Who?

Another Raider No. 1 draft choice has a bad back. Three years ago, the Raiders found out just after the draft that offensive lineman Don Mosebar had recently had back surgery. Now, defensive lineman Bob Buczkowski of Pitt has developed a back problem. This time, though, the Raiders think the problem is minor. In Buczkowski's case, it's just a sore back, for which they sent him to a doctor Monday. "Bob's symptoms are not even close to Don's," Coach Tom Flores said.

Who has the best pass-completion record on the Raiders, would you guess? Jeff Hostetler? Not even close. Daryle Lamonica? Jim Plunkett? Ken Stabler? Nah. In a sense, they were receivers. The most proficient passer in Raider history--in terms of numbers, not yardage--might be a guy you never heard of. It might be Jim Otto, "Old Double-Oh," his teammates called him, but as far as the public at large was concerned, that might as well have been double zero. It might have been Double D.

Short and stocky is the image Don Mosebar had of a center when he began his football career. Never in his wildest dreams did he see himself playing the position. With his thick, 6-foot-6 frame, Mosebar did not fit the mold of the squatty offensive lineman crouched over the ball with a hotel-size towel draped over his backside. Mosebar seemed tailor-made to be an offensive tackle.

Center Don Mosebar ended his holdout Tuesday, signing a three-year deal. No terms were disclosed. "It's never fun being out of camp," Mosebar said. "I'm just glad to be here and I'm looking forward to playing." Mosebar's signing leaves the Raiders with one holdout, defensive end Scott Davis. The Raiders announced they traded veteran safety Vencie Glenn to the New Orleans Saints on for an undisclosed draft choice.
