The Raiders, already down one inside linebacker with Matt Millen holding out while being fined $1,000 a day, lost another one. That was Jamie Kimmel, who had stepped into Millen's strong-side job. Kimmel tore a ligament in his right knee in Saturday morning's practice and will be lost for the season. Kimmel, a fourth-year player, was taken to Cedars of Sinai Medical Center, where surgery will be performed. After him, the Raiders are about out of veterans.

For the Raiders, Saturday's exhibition loss to the Miami Dolphins at least got no worse on Sunday. Wide receiver Dokie Williams' wounded right knee improved and is now being diagnosed as a strain. Williams took a shot from a defensive back while in the air Saturday, and spent the night in a hospital. With Cliff Branch already on injured reserve and Jessie Hester dropping two passes Saturday including one in the end zone, the last thing the Raiders needed was bad news about Williams.

Howie Long and Bill Pickel, who walked in and out of Raider camp last Friday, were back Tuesday and this time they stayed in. The strikebreaking Raiders had the day off, but Long and Pickel worked out with Earl Leggett, defensive line coach. When approached by an Associated Press reporter, Long said: "I did this (talked to reporters) last Friday, it's Bill's turn." Pickel had no comment. Long and Pickel were the first Raider starters to report since the strike began two weeks ago.

The Raiders drafted Jesse Hester for his abiltty to go deep, but Wednesday they sent him on a reverse. Hester showed up along with other rookies for the opening of training camp at the Hilton Inn, but the Raiders turned their No. 1 draft choice around and sent him back to Florida because he hasn't agreed to contract terms. "He just thought we were close to getting it done," Coach Tom Flores said of the speedy wide receiver from Florida State.

Action heated up on the Raider picket line, where so many players crossed in so many directions that observers grew dizzy trying to keep track. In the big news, Howie Long and Bill Pickel reported Friday, worked out after practice with assistant coach Earl Leggett, then walked out again, apparently at the suggestion of . . . Al Davis? "I have one thing to say and one thing only," Long told a battery of reporters in front of the Raider facility. "It's not an open forum.

The Raiders Thursday began winding down their practice in preparation for Saturday's exhibition opener against the San Francisco 49ers, and Coach Tom Flores gave an informal state of the team address. Highlighted were the positions that are most up for grabs. Inside linebacker, where Matt Millen was thought to be safe and Jack Squirek is chasing Bob Nelson: "There's a real battle going on. Millen and Nelson are the incumbents.

It was a Raider season like any other. They didn't lose many but when they did lose, there was hell to pay. The tolls were often collected before the other guys made it to the safety of their dressing room. On a bad day in the Coliseum, the light at the end of the tunnel under the stands is probably the headlight of an oncoming Raider. So meet the most famous of them, Matt Millen, heretofore known as a run-stuffing inside linebacker, now celebrated as the Raider who belted Pat Sullivan.

These are the times that fry Raiders' souls, including the highest and mightiest of them. Mike Haynes is said to be in danger of being cut. Haynes, perhaps the finest defensive back to play the game, didn't start the last exhibition. He won't start Friday night in Chicago. Rookie Terry McDaniel, considered a rising star, has just been moved to his position. And the bench may not be much of an option, either.

So much for the preseason. The Raiders got down to the 45-man roster the hard way, by cutting their leading rusher in exhibitions, rookie fullback Dan Reeder. With him went veteran wide receiver Gordon Jones, who'd also been impressive in camp and in his limited playing time, and offensive guard Dwight Wheeler. Rookie cornerback Stefon Adams made the injured reserve list with a hamstring pull.
