The Denver Broncos offered two reasons why they failed to score touchdowns after twice having first downs at the Raider one-yard line Sunday: --Injured quarterback John Elway. --Injured running back Leonard Russell. "Of course having John out hurt us," Denver Coach Wade Phillips said after the 23-13 loss at the Coliseum, "but not having Leonard in there really was bad because he's our big goal-line back."

Leonard Russell will be the starting running back for the San Diego Chargers in Sunday's season opener against the Seattle Seahawks. "He was just a little bit more emphatic in his cuts and his decision-making seemed quicker," Coach Bobby Ross said Friday. "He just ran with a little bit more authority, and he's a little bit better receiver." The 6-foot-2, 240-pound Russell, a former first-round draft pick, is with his fourth team in four years.

It was not the world's best recruiting effort that attracted former high school All-America running back Leonard Russell to Mt. San Antonio College in Walnut. It was more like a world of good fortune. In fact, Mt. San Antonio Coach Bill Fisk didn't even have to step foot outside his office on campus to recruit Russell. "We were very fortunate," Fisk said. "His parents moved close to our school, and on the first day of classes he just walked into my office and asked if he could come out."

Apparently, married life agrees with Leonard Russell. So do the Seattle Seahawks. Russell, whose wedding was on Saturday, ran for 109 yards Sunday, including an 11-yard touchdown run with 5:43 to play, as the Denver Broncos defeated the Seattle Seahawks, 17-10, to escape the AFC West cellar. Russell, whose two 100-yard rushing games this season were both against the Seahawks, broke a 10-10 tie with his slashing run off the left side, capping an 80-yard, nine-play drive.

The Raiders are in training camp in Oxnard. The New England Patriots are in training camp in Rhode Island. And Leonard Russell is sitting home in Long Beach. Not exactly the summer he envisioned. Not exactly what most people would envision for one of last season's 1,000-yard rushers. Russell, a Patriot running back who has become expendable with the arrival of Marion Butts from the San Diego Chargers, had heard the rumors that he was headed to the Raiders.
