The San Diego Chargers will be without running back Natrone Means for two to four weeks because of a strained groin. Means was hurt on the fifth play from scrimmage in Sunday night's 24-14 loss to Miami when he tried to elude linebacker Bryan Cox after making a catch. * Glen Foley, the New York Jets' second-year quarterback who was given his first extended action on Sunday, dislocated his right shoulder on the final play of a 20-7 loss to New England and will need arthroscopic surgery.

Troy Aikman was still having headaches Thursday, four days after absorbing a helmet-to-helmet blow from Indianapolis cornerback Jeff Burris, but he expects to play Monday night against Minnesota. "I'd hate to say right now that I definitely would not play or I definitely would play," the Cowboy quarterback said. "The only comment I can make right now is that I plan on playing. I'll go out and practice this week and hope the headaches stop."

Other than dumping a cooler on their coach's head, the Cincinnati Bengals hardly celebrated their first win. Instead, they acted like winners. Which is what Marvin Lewis promised they'd be. The NFL's sorriest team for the last decade gave their first-year coach his first victory Sunday as Jon Kitna threw three touchdown passes to lead Cincinnati past the Cleveland Browns, 21-14. It's just one win, but the Bengals (1-3) aren't feeling -- or playing -- like the Bungles anymore.

Wide receiver Johnnie Morton, a first-round pick from USC, signed with the Detroit Lions. Although terms weren't announced, the deal reportedly was worth $3.15 million for four years and included a $1.15-million signing bonus. Morton holds the Pacific 10 Conference record for receivers with 201 catches for 3,201 yards. He set a school record last year with 78 catches for 1,373 yards and 12 touchdowns. Training camp opens Wednesday.

Navy rolled the dice early against No. 10-ranked Notre Dame, and the Middies paid when the numbers came up wrong. Reggie Brooks ran for a touchdown and caught one of Rick Mirer's two scoring passes in a 24-point second quarter as Notre Dame defeated winless Navy, 38-7, Saturday for their 29th consecutive victory over the Midshipmen.

Bill Parcells' quarterback gamble didn't pay off because he had his quarterback try a risky pass. So risky that it cost the New York Jets what looked to be a certain victory in what has become a lost season. "You can't take any risk there," Parcells said after untested Ray Lucas, in his first NFL start, threw a late interception at the Indianapolis goal line that Jeff Burris returned 55 yards.

Regarding the Nov. 6 letter: It doesn't feel so good to have the shoe fit on the other side, does it? Not weeks, but for years USC was always featured in the front pages, headlines splashed with articles and many photos of USC; whereas UCLA, if at all mentioned, was way inside. Answer to your question, "Are the Bruins getting more than their share?" It's about time. EMMA A. GUERRERO Alhambra Congratulations to reader Mark Ferris of La Crescenta. After his complaint of the Trojans not receiving equal coverage in the "UCLA Times," I pick up Thursday's paper only to find a picture of his Trojans on the front page of the sports section.

Henry Jones, veteran Buffalo Bills' safety, could be sidelined for the rest of the NFL season after undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his right knee. Buffalo, which can clinch its sixth AFC East title in eight years Sunday with a victory over Miami, would need to reach the AFC championship game for Jones to be able to return this season. Jones, 27, in his fifth year, led the team in tackles through the first 13 games. He is the third member of Buffalo's secondary to be injured this season.
