Jim Lachey, the anchor of the Washington Redskins' offensive line, could be out at least a month with a knee injury. Lachey partially tore the medial collateral ligament in his right knee Monday night while blocking on a field-goal attempt against the Denver Broncos. San Francisco 49er officials are hopeful that quarterback Joe Montana's latest medical setback is only temporary. Montana, who had surgery Sept. 12 to clear up scar tissue in his right elbow, last threw a football Sept. 26.

The Raiders have agreed to send newly acquired tackle Jim Lachey and a draft choice to the Washington Redskins for quarterback Jay Schroeder, The Times learned Saturday night. Schroeder was the Redskins' starter until losing his job last season to Doug Williams. Unhappy at his demotion, he asked to be traded. The Raiders will start Steve Beuerlein at quarterback today against San Diego. Beuerlein, a second-year player, spent his first season on the injured reserve list.

As have others who angered owner Al Davis before him, Steve Beuerlein saw his Raider saga end at an airport terminal. He departed Sunday after the Raiders traded the backup quarterback to the Dallas Cowboys for an undisclosed 1992 draft choice. The Raiders were looking to rid themselves of Beuerlein since his summer holdout of 1990. Beuerlein returned to the team last September, but never was allowed to suit up for a game, all but sealing his fate.

Offensive tackle Jim Lachey remains hobbled by a pulled hamstring and may miss Sunday's game against the Houston Oilers. Lachey, the Chargers' premier blocker, hasn't missed a game in his two-year career but was described as "very questionable" by Coach Al Saunders. If Lachey is unable to play, he will be replaced in the starting lineup by Ken Dallafior (6-foot-4, 269 pounds), a second-year man who has never started a game in the National Football League.

Pro Bowl tackle Jim Lachey got his wish Saturday when the San Diego Chargers traded him to the Raiders for second-year tackle John Clay and two unspecified high draft choices. Ten teams were reported to have expressed an interest in Lachey, but none offered as much as the Raiders, said Steve Ortmayer, the Chargers' director of football operations. "The offer the Raiders made for Lachey was the best offer we got by far," Ortmayer said. "It had to be.

The Chargers were faced with the prospect of losing their third No. 1 draft choice in three years Wednesday when the agent for offensive tackle Jim Lachey declared negotiations had reached an impasse and said he was close to requesting a trade.

New Raider tackle, Jim Lachey, arrived in camp Monday and in the starting lineup almost simultaneously. Lachey is young (25), huge (6 feet 6 inches, 283 pounds) and accomplished. A No. 1 draft choice in 1985 and a Pro Bowl player last season, he came from San Diego for a large package--John Clay plus the reported third- and fourth-round draft picks in 1989--and the Raiders have big plans for him. They installed him at left tackle, considered the key in pass blocking.

Chicago Bear quarterback Mike Tomczak, who describes himself as being "best friends" with Charger offensive lineman Jim Lachey, said Tuesday that Lachey has told him "he'd love to come to Chicago." Lachey missed Charger practice for the fifth consecutive day, and he refused to explain his absence. His agent, Leigh Steinberg, also refused to shed any light on Lachey's status. Same for Lachey's financial adviser and self-described godfather, Stan Glick, a Columbus, Ohio, businessman.

When it was over Sunday and Jim Lachey had signed a Charger contract that will earn him about $2 million over the next five seasons, his agent revealed the secret catalyst in the negotiations. "Caffeine," said attorney Leigh Steinberg. "These were caffeine-assisted negotiations." Steinberg consumed large amounts of diet soda while driving back to Los Angeles on Saturday night after three hours of talks with General Manager Johnny Sanders in which a contractual breakthrough took place.

The sad, confusing and continuing saga of tackle John Clay and the Chargers took another unexpected turn Sunday on the first day of training camp when Coach Dan Henning said he didn't know where Clay was. Worse for Clay, Henning said Clay was supposed to be at the team's UC San Diego training site even though most veterans won't report until later this week. Even worse was the look on Henning's face when asked if he was disappointed over Clay's absence. "Yes," Henning said.

Napoleon McCallum, running back and Navy officer, was sent Tuesday by the Raiders to the San Diego Chargers, completing the deal that sent Pro Bowl offensive tackle Jim Lachey to the Raiders this summer. The Raiders wound up getting a starting quarterback from the deal when they later traded Lachey to the Washington Redskins for Jay Schroeder.

It was like facing Hurricane Gilbert in a rowboat, or Mike Tyson when he is in a bad mood. No place to run, no place to hide. So once the charge began, all Raider quarterback Steve Beuerlein could do was cover up as they came in waves, Mel Owens from the right, Mike Wilcher from the left and Gary Jeter up the middle. When it was finally, mercifully over, Jeter had 5 sacks and the Rams had 9 in all, a 22-17 victory over the Raiders in front of a Coliseum crowd of 84,870 and a perfect 3-0 record.

Comings and goings . . . Gone . . . Jim Lachey Never think you've seen everything in sports. There is always a new twist, another trip down Bizarre Boulevard. Here is a seemingly intelligent young man, a wholesome type in whose name--and with whose funding--a football scholarship is presented each year at Ohio State University. It seems, however, that he did not major in geography, because he determined that San Diego was much too far from home and insisted that he be dispatched elsewhere.
