Marques Anderson has regained his job as the starting left cornerback, a move initiated last week at Washington and set to continue Saturday against USC, just in time to get part of the responsibility of containing R. Jay Soward. Anderson was in the opening lineup the first two games, only to be replaced by Ryan Roques amid harsh words by Coach Bob Toledo as part of the Sept. 21 shake-up that hit the entire secondary.

Marques Anderson is a member in good standing with the UCLA secondary again. He is still the backup to Ryan Roques at left cornerback, but is holding steady, and playing in the nickel package is a lot better than the direction Anderson was headed about three weeks ago.

Four-time Pro Bowl cornerback Charles Woodson and safety Marques Anderson were arrested early Monday on suspicion of public intoxication after the Raiders' victory over the Tennessee Titans. The Oakland Police Department said the players were arrested at 4:20 a.m. in downtown Oakland after refusing to leave the back seat of a woman's car. Both were jailed briefly, police spokeswoman Danielle Ashford said.

The loss of Lovell Houston and Julius Williams in the UCLA secondary is offset by the return of Marques Anderson after he missed all of last season because of disciplinary reasons. When the Bruins opened practice Saturday at Spaulding Field, it marked Anderson's first full-team participation in a little more than 20 months. He hasn't played in a game since the Rose Bowl loss to Wisconsin.

Tailback DeShaun Foster joined four UCLA teammates in sending letters to the NFL, asking where they might be drafted should they turn pro, Coach Bob Toledo said Monday. Foster, selected last week to the all-Pac-10 team, had previously indicated he would return for his senior season. Toledo said five juniors--Foster, receivers Freddie Mitchell and Brian Poli-Dixon, linebacker Robert Thomas and safety Marques Anderson--had sent letters to the NFL.
