Keith Millard lifted his left arm as high as he could, which wasn't very high at all. He uses the arm to do the tricks of his trade--rips and swims and all those other little moves that most spectators at an NFL game never see because they happen in the war zone known as the trenches. "I haven't been able to practice or lift weights for three weeks," Millard said. "All I've done is play in games which, no matter how much it hurts, is something I've got to do."
