The Rams Friday brought tight end-running back Mike Guman off the injured-reserve list and put rookie guard Duval Love on it because of a neck injury. Guman will play at Atlanta Sunday. Guman, a sixth-year pro from Penn State, had surgery after suffering a knee injury in the second game of the season at Philadelphia Sept. 15. At the time he had rushed 4 times for 16 yards and had caught 2 passes for 21, although he is used primarily as a blocker and special teams player.

It wasn't long ago that Ram guard Duval Love was more famous for his socks than his blocks. Last year, his name appeared in newspaper quotebooks around the country as the kicker to one of guard Dennis Harrah's most well-traveled one-liners. Harrah, knocked unconscious in a game against New Orleans at Anaheim Stadium, swore later that not even smelling salts could revive him. "What they needed was one of Duval Love's socks," Harrah said. Hence, a legend was born even before the star.

Herschel Walker agreed to a one-year contract with the Minnesota Vikings on Monday, ending months of sometimes acrimonious negotiations. Jeff Diamond, the Viking vice president who negotiated the deal, would not say how much the former All-Pro running back will be paid. Neither Walker nor his Cleveland-based agent, Peter Johnson, could be reached for comment.

If the article John Weyler wrote about Duval Love is good sportswriting then The Times better review its staff. I have followed Duval's career from Fountain Valley High School through UCLA, and I intend to follow his professional career. Duval is not cocky and overconfident as the article implies. Rather, he is a very positive person who knows it takes confidence in oneself to succeed. Duval Love has more tenacity and determination than anyone I know. When he sets his mind to something he works very hard to get it. JAMES RENNER Fountain Valley

They have been tinkering, tinkering, tinkering, all off-season long, and now, with the regular-season opener just over a week away, things are still a bit of a jumble on the Rams' new, jumbo-sized offensive line. Only Jackie Slater at right tackle remains in the same position from last year's starting five. The rest of the 1991 line is an assortment of moved, untested, unsigned, rehabilitating or acquired players.

Ram tackle Duval Love underwent arthroscopic surgery Sunday morning at Inglewood's Centinela Hospital to repair ligament damage in his right knee. Love, in his third season from UCLA, is expected to be out 4 to 6 weeks. Love was injured in Saturday morning's practice during a pass blocking drill when another player accidently rolled into his leg. Love was starting at left offensive tackle in place of Irv Pankey, who is holding out in a contract dispute.
