A holdout here, an injury there and all of a sudden the Latin Berry Experiment has accelerated from a gradual transition to an instant opportunity. With No. 1 pick Todd Lyght unsigned and unlikely to be in camp before August and with Darryl Henley sidelined indefinitely because of a pulled left hamstring, the Rams' right cornerback spot is suddenly open. Berry has gotten the first shot with the first-team defense, a fairly quick move up the depth chart.

Third-round draft choice Latin Berry, who has spent most of his life moving forward, signed a three-year deal with the Rams Friday and will now attempt to backpedal his way into history. Berry's agent said the contract is worth about $600,000. Berry was a fullback and track star at Oregon. He finished fourth on the school's career rushing list with 1,548 yards and 11 touchdowns. He was a three-time Pacific 10 Conference long jump champion and twice won the triple jump title.

While others turned their backs on Bern Brostek and his back, the Rams shunned some medical-report gossip Sunday and drafted with their own hearts and charts, selecting the University of Washington center with the 23rd pick on the first round. Brostek, the heir apparent to 33-year-old Pro Bowl center Doug Smith, admits to having a congenital spinal defect, an interesting problem facing a youngster entering a professional career of hunching and squatting.

Cornerback Darryl Henley and running back Marcus Dupree suffered muscle strains during practice, but only Henley missed the afternoon practice and probably will miss a few more days. Henley's pulled left hamstring, coupled with the continued absence of No. 1 pick Todd Lyght, opens the right cornerback spot up to all comers, Coach John Robinson said. In the afternoon, Latin Berry was playing the position.

The Rams, having seen their secondary decimated by injuries in the last week, moved to shore up their defenses at the negotiating table. Strong safety Michael Stewart, who ranked third on the team in tackles last season with 72, agreed to a two-year contract Sunday. Details of the deal, which ended a 40-day holdout, were not disclosed. As much as they need the help, the Rams are expected to resist the temptation to ask Stewart to play cornerback.

Third-quarter interceptions by Derek Horton and Daryl Reed set up Oregon touchdowns Saturday as the Ducks rallied for a 38-20 Pacific 10 Conference victory over slumping UCLA. The loss was the fifth in a row for the Bruins, their longest losing streak since 1963. UCLA is 2-5 in Pac-10 play and 3-7 overall. The Bruins haven't lost seven games in a season since 1971 when they were 2-7-1.
