Cornerback Darryl Henley was released from a San Francisco hospital Monday, but the prognosis on his torn hip flexor muscle from Sunday's 49ers' game remained the same: He will be sidelined four weeks. Coach Chuck Knox said doctors believed Henley might have re-aggravated a hip injury he suffered a few years ago. Knox tried to remain optimistic that the cornerback would return before the end of the season. "It's a week-to-week thing, but the doctors are still talking four weeks," he said.

Texas A & I running back Johnny Bailey on Friday won his third consecutive Harlon Hill Trophy, the equivalent of the Heisman Trophy in NCAA Division II football. Bailey, who was the runner-up for the first Hill trophy as a freshman in 1986 and won it the last two years, finished his career as the top rusher in NCAA history. The 5-foot-9, 178-pound senior from Houston gained 6,320 yards to break Tony Dorsett's mark of 6,038 yards at Pittsburgh.

Johnny Bailey of Texas A&I broke the NCAA all-purpose yardage record in the Javelinas' 33-13 victory over Abilene Christian on Saturday. Bailey broke the record, which combines rushing, receiving and return yardage, of 7,623 yards with a 19-yard kickoff return. The record had been held by Kenny Gamble, who played for Colgate from 1984-87. The kickoff return, with 6:08 remaining in the second quarter, gave Bailey 7,637 all-purpose career yards.

Johnny Bailey says he doesn't want to think about Tony Dorsett. But that may not be possible this season. The 5-8 3/4, 180-pound senior at Texas A&I, who turned his back on Division I football rather than sit out a year as a Proposition 48 casualty, is poised to break Dorsett's NCAA regular-season career rushing record. "I just want to get my mind on just playing every game, staying healthy and doing good for the team," Bailey said as fall practice was getting under way.

Texas A&I tailback Johnny Bailey broke Tony Dorsett's 13-year-old National Collegiate Athletic Assn. career rushing record Saturday night. A four-yard run in the third quarter against Central State (Okla.) gave Bailey 6,085 yards, eclipsing the mark of 6,082 set by Dorsett in his four years at Pittsburgh in 1973-76. Bailey rushed 16 times for 88 yards and two touchdowns in the first half, then, on the Javelinas' first play of the second half, he scored on a 49-yard run.
