In a surprise move, Keith Jackson, Philadelphia's Pro Bowl tight end, ended his two-month holdout--in time to play against the Rams Sunday at Anaheim Stadium. Jackson, who caught 144 passes in his first two pro seasons, had said he would not report to the team until the final two years of his contract were reworked. The contract remains the same, but he came in anyway. . . .

Steve Beuerlein took over as Notre Dame's all-time total offense leader, but Coach Lou Holtz thinks he still doesn't get the notice due him. "I think he's a very underrated quarterback," Holtz said after Beuerlein threw two touchdown passes and led the Irish to a 33-14 thrashing of Navy Saturday night. "He has taken a lot of criticism he shouldn't have taken. He'll beat you anyway he can--with his arm, with his head, with anything else he can think of."

Charger General Manager Bobby Beathard said he was impressed with Mike Lansford, the Rams' Plan B free-agent kicker, after a Thursday workout but said he remains unsure the Chargers will be able to sign him. The workout was designed primarily to test Lansford's kickoff skills. Beathard said Lansford made his only field goal attempt, a 50-yarder. Lansford, 31, was left unprotected by the Rams under Plan B and has until April 1 to sign with another team.

Molly Kool, 93, the first woman in North America to become a licensed ship captain, died Feb. 25 at her home in Bangor, Maine. Kool got her captain's papers in 1939 and sailed the Atlantic Ocean between Alma, Canada, and Boston for five years, her friend Ken Kelly said. Kool grew up in the village of Alma in New Brunswick, where she learned a love of the sea and sailing from her father, a Dutch ship captain. At 23, she made history by earning the title of captain after the Canadian Shipping Act was rewritten to say "he/she" instead of just "he," Kelly said.

B+: QUARTERBACKS In all honesty, why sure, George Bush will cut taxes and Chargers never doubted Bob Gagliano. Only reason they traded for Stan Humphries was to remind everyone what Billy Joe Tolliver looked like.
