Joe Montana's injured foot was diagnosed as a sprain Monday, and the Kansas City Chiefs' quarterback was pronounced questionable for next week's game against Denver. Backup Steve Bono took all the snaps during a light workout, one day after the Chiefs lost, 10-9, at Seattle to fall to 7-5. Coach Marty Schottenheimer said a decision on Montana's availability probably won't be made until Friday at the earliest and game time Sunday at the latest.

The last of the rain had fallen just before the University of Florida football team began its practice at Aloha Stadium Monday, making the warm morning air stifling and steamy. A long practice ended with wind sprints on the slippery artificial turf, so the Gators were heading for the showers exhausted and dripping with sweat. A couple of the players were asked to stop to talk to a small group of reporters. No time for chit-chat or life stories. Just highlights for the upcoming game.

After seven seasons with the Rams, strong safety Michael Stewart has signed a three-year, $2.8-million contract with the Miami Dolphins.

When the Rams drafted Cleveland Gary, Coach John Robinson said he was just too good a player to pass up. This, despite the fact that the much-needed defensive help was available in Louis Oliver, the safety who has been a big part of Miami's defensive turnaround. Not only is Gary not the player he was thought to be ("He wasn't a fumbler in college"), Oliver's tremendous range and tackling prowess would never have allowed Gill Fenerty to tiptoe 60 yards for a momentum-changing touchdown.
