Linebacker Shane Conlan, who has missed the last two games because of a sprained left knee, practiced Wednesday and should be ready for Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns at Anaheim Stadium, Coach Chuck Knox said. Left guards Keith Loneker and Tom Newberry are both sidelined because of knee injuries. * Michael Jackson, Cleveland's second-leading receiver with 38 catches, missed last Sunday's 20-17 loss to New England because of a knee injury and is questionable for Sunday.
