Retirement usually means gifts and parties at work for the faithful employee. That was not the case, however, at the Raiders' El Segundo practice facility last week when offensive tackle Steve Wright decided to hang up his cleats after 13 years.

With starters Don Mosebar and Shelby Jordan holding out, the rebuilding of the Raider offensive line proceeds slowly. Right now the No. 1 unit includes journeymen Dwight Wheeler and Steve Wright, plus the endangered incumbent, Mickey Marvin. When everyone is here, this is how it shapes up: Left Tackle--Favored to start: Bruce Davis. Coming up fast: No. 1 pick John Clay. Raider officials say Clay was switched to the left to motivate Davis.

If wide receiver Mervyn Fernandez does not catch a pass in today's game at Washington, it will be the first time in his six-year NFL career with the Raiders that he did not catch at least 10 passes in a season. Fernandez, who has not seen much action this season, has only nine catches for 121 yards in 15 games. His previous low came in 1987, when he caught 14 passes for 236 yards in seven games before being placed on injured reserve.

As of 1 p.m. Thursday, the Raiders had sold 76,500 seats for Sunday's game against the Dallas Cowboys. That's far short of a sellout in the Coliseum, capacity 92,488, meaning the television blackout will not be lifted. But if the attendance figure reaches the expected level of more than 85,000, it will be largest crowd of the season in the NFL. * Quarterback Todd Marinovich practiced Thursday and is expected to start Sunday's game.
