The National Football League career of five-time Pro Bowl safety Kenny Easley of the Seattle Seahawks could be over because of a serious kidney ailment. "If he has to go to dialysis, there's no way he can play football," Seahawks' president-general manager Mike McCormack said Wednesday. Leigh Steinberg, Easley's agent, said Wednesday that "it appears that treatment will start fairly soon. . . . I think you can draw your own conclusion."

When freshman running back Durrell Price reported at UCLA, he found that he was assigned jersey No. 33, and he wasn't happy about it. Seems he had been told that he could wear No. 5, as he had at Sylmar High. The problem is No. 5 was retired in honor of three-time All-American and eventual all-pro safety Kenny Easley. "I talked to him and tried to tell him about the people who had worn No. 33," said Coach Bob Toledo, who mentioned the last No. 33 at UCLA was All-American Karim Abdul-Jabbar.

These are the agonizing days Kenny Easley had hoped would never come. "You wake up hurting, you go through the day hurting, you go to bed hurting and you wake up the next morning and you're still hurting," he said. "It seems like it never goes away. It gets to be very disheartening and very frustrating." His suffering is the result of a June 8 kidney transplant in Seattle, where for seven years Easley was an outstanding safety for the Seahawks.
