The top Raider rookie, Penn State guard Steve Wisniewski, agreed to terms Friday and reported after a one-day holdout. Wisniewski was the top pick in the second round. Of the players selected ahead of him in the draft, only two have signed--Troy Aikman with Dallas, and Andre Rison with Indianapolis. George Karras, who handled negotiations for the Raiders, did so from a hospital bed, after undergoing foot surgery. Wisniewski is thought to be in the running for the starting right guard spot.

With left guard Steve Wisniewski sidelined because of a sprained knee for at least a week, probably longer, the Raiders need a replacement. James FitzPatrick, a 300-pound tackle, took over when Wisniewski was injured Sunday. But Coach Art Shell said Monday that Reggie McElroy, a natural guard who has played more tackle this season, might get the start next Monday at New Orleans.

An article titled "Skater's Death Raises Safety Issue" (Times, Aug. 1) erroneously infers that the Hermosa Beach Police Department rarely enforces a Hermosa Beach Municipal Code prohibition governing the use of wheeled vehicles, including roller skates, on sidewalks in the community's commercial zone. Nothing could be further from the truth. Members of the Police Department's Patrol Bureau, Downtown Strand/Beach Enforcement Detail and Traffic Enforcement Unit have been and remain under consistent and clear direction to enforce all laws and ordinances pertaining to the use of wheeled vehicles both on The Strand walkway and in the commercial zones throughout our community.

You have heard that football is war. Even some of the vernacular is the same. There are marches into enemy territory, blitzes, sweeps, bombs. Quarterbacks are often called "field generals." One of today's marquee players is nicknamed "Rocket." NFL players and coaches frequently talk about "going to war" on Sundays in games that will be won or lost "in the trenches." Guard Steve Wisniewski of the Raiders knows better. Wisniewski is one of the meanest, toughest up-and-coming talents in the game.

The Raiders have released two veterans to make room on the roster for rookies, including second-round draft choice Steve Wisniewski. Veteran free-agent quarterback Mike Kelley was cut to make room for Wisniewski, and center George Lilja was dropped Friday. Wisniewski, an offensive lineman from Penn State taken with the 29th pick, signed Saturday morning and participated in two practices after missing the first day of two-a-day workouts. "I wasn't much of a holdout," Wisniewski said.

Play football, Steve Wisniewski says. Play the playoff game at Buffalo today. Play the Super Bowl game at Tampa next week, without postponement because of the war. When consulting with his heart, with his mind, with his conscience, this is the way Steve Wisniewski always sees it. Because this is the way Vince Wisniewski would want it. Steve sits by, anxiously, powerlessly, longing to know where and how Vince is.

Oooh, those arms! Are those biceps inflatable, or what? Level with me kid, is that one of those muscle shirts like Gallagher, the comedian, wears? Steve Wisniewski, the rookie Raider guard, has arms that jut out of his short-sleeved uniform shirt like Sequoia trunks. Talk about your bargains, he was listed as a lean, mean 265-pounder from Penn State, but when he got off the plane, he was 290 pounds of bench-pressing fury. This was a good time for a bargain, too.
