After clamoring before the game for a piece of Emmitt Smith's hide--"I want Emmitt Smith, I want to give him some of what he got last time"--Rickey Jackson of the 49ers changed his tune after Sunday's game. "You could tell Emmitt was hurt, but, boy, he's really tough," Jackson said. "I gave him my best shots, and sometimes he would bounce right off and keep running." Before the game, Smith was suffering from a strained left hamstring.

Rickey Jackson made some nifty moves to get to Jim Everett Sunday night, but they were nothing compared to the mad dash he made to escape the Superdome after the Saints' 13-10 victory over the Rams. For reasons no one seemed to know, Jackson pushed his way through reporters gathered around his locker without acknowledging questions, slipped out through the equipment room door and then sprinted through a crowd of Saint fans and autograph seekers at the players' entrance.

New Orleans Saints linebacker Rickey Jackson underwent 3 1/2 hours of reconstructive surgery Thursday on the cheekbone he fractured in a car wreck, and a team spokesman said he is expected to be out at least four weeks. Jackson narrowly escaped death early Monday when he drove a borrowed Corvette under the back of a flatbed truck on U.S. 61 about three miles from his home north of New Orleans. Investigators said he was going more than 100 m.p.h.

The Rams are used to worrying about the pass rushing of New Orleans' outside linebackers Rickey Jackson and Pat Swilling , but because of the emergence of defensive tackle Wayne Martin, they will have another Saint to worry about Sunday against the Saints. Martin leads the Saints and is second in the NFL with 14 sacks. Jackson has 11 1/2 and Swilling has 10 1/2. "Wayne's having an excellent year," Saint Coach Jim Mora said. "It's just been consistent--every game he plays well."

New Orleans Saints linebacker Rickey Jackson's face was cut and bruised in a car wreck after Sunday's victory over the Dallas Cowboys and he probably will undergo surgery, a Saints spokesman said today. "Swelling in the area will have to go down before more examinations can be done and the extent of injuries can be determined," said spokesman Rusty Kasmiersky. Jackson appeared on the postgame television show "Fourth Down on Four," and the accident occurred some time after that.
