Terrell Davis has gone from obscure running back at Georgia to rookie sensation to Associated Press NFL offensive player of the year in only two years. Davis, the Denver Broncos' sixth-round choice in the 1995 draft who rushed for 1,538 yards this season, edged Green Bay quarterback Brett Favre, last year's winner, in balloting by a nationwide panel of 93 sportswriters. Davis received 36 1/2 votes to 34 for Favre.

You've seen Simeon Rice in a football helmet. Now, imagine him in a beret with a bullhorn. Rice sees himself as part Tampa Bay defensive end, part Simeon Spielberg. "I want to write, direct, the whole thing," he said. "I've got a few treatments that I did. I want to take it to the highest level, promote that to the highest. I've found it's somewhat of a gift I have: I'm colorful.

Arizona defensive end Simeon Rice had predicted a multiple sack game, and then pulled it off with two against the Eagles, proclaiming, "Just call me the great Mussolini." Try Nostradamus. * The Cowboys are without Troy Aikman, who has a broken collarbone, but should get Chris Warren back for the Raiders, just in time because Emmitt Smith is limping because of a strained groin.

Sunday afternoon at Veterans Stadium in Philadelphia, Eagle quarterback Donovan McNabb will take a snap from center, drop back to pass and see a familiar face heading his way, the face of his big brother in high school, the face of his mentor through college and into the pros, the face of his off-season basketball partner and buddy. McNabb and Tampa Bay Buccaneer defensive lineman Simeon Rice were teammates back at Chicago's Mt. Carmel High.

This will be news to the editorial writers of the Chicago Tribune, but All-American linebacker Simeon Rice of Illinois isn't quite the hero they thought he was. But he's close. Back in January, when Rice announced he would return to Illinois for his senior season rather than join the NFL, the Tribune found room on its stately editorial page to praise the Chicago-born star for staying in school. About the only things missing were orange and blue pompons.

Johnny Johnson, signed last spring to bolster the San Francisco 49ers' rushing attack, was cut Tuesday without playing in a game. Gino Torretta, the 1992 Heisman Trophy winner, also was among 18 players released as the 49ers trimmed their roster to the NFL-mandated 60-player limit. Johnson, who signed to a two-year, $3-million contract last March, aggravated a back injury on the 49ers' first day of training camp.

Chicago Bear defensive tackle Chris Zorich will sit out the 1996 season because of a torn knee ligament. The team said Monday that Zorich suffered his injury in the first quarter of Saturday's 31-21 exhibition loss at New Orleans. "It's very frustrating," Zorich said. "I remember one foot being planted in the AstroTurf and my other foot came down on the wrong angle."
