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?

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.

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.
