Vann McElroy, the Raiders' two-time Pro Bowl safety, returned to practice Wednesday, meaning that he must be activated this week or next, or cut. McElroy suffered a calf injury in Game 4. However, he was additionally held out of drills for two weeks after he said he was ready, raising speculation that the Raiders didn't plan to re-activate him. McElroy was persuaded to renegotiate his $575,000 contract before the season.

I was disgusted by the attitude displayed by Vann McElroy in the wake of the Stacey Toran tragedy. I believe that McElroy is quite mistaken: Operating a motor vehicle after drinking enough alcohol to raise one's blood-alcohol level to over three times the legal limit certainly makes one "less of a man." What a depressing contrast to the uplifting story of Dave Dravecky. BRUCE A. FISHER Long Beach

Both Howie Long and Vann McElroy pine for the good old days in Oakland, where the stadium "hopped" with enthusiastic fans every week. Long says that the small, unenthusiastic crowds in Los Angeles don't send chills down his spine. It's time for the silver and black to stop pointing fingers and face the facts--they don't feel the chills because they seem to have left their spines in Oakland. JOSEPH P. HUBBELL Pismo Beach

Veteran safety Vann McElroy, who ended his holdout Monday, doesn't know what his role with the team will be this season. "I came in, signed, and that's about the only comment I have about it," McElroy said Tuesday. "I feel real good. It's up to them what they want to do." McElroy lost his starting job last season after returning from an injury.

The Raiders traded safety Vann McElroy, a two-time Pro Bowl performer, to the Seattle Seahawks today for an undisclosed future draft choice. Meanwhile, running back Marcus Allen and reserve quarterback Steve Beuerlein, two players rumored to be headed elsewhere, stayed put as the NFL trade deadline passed. McElroy, 30, was a training camp holdout in a salary dispute and has played only sparingly on special teams since being activated.

To the menaces of camp, along with those mind-numbing repetitions the coaches love so much and the rivers of sweat running around under your pads, add the ultra-competitor who doesn't know how to go halfway and isn't sure he wants to learn. Or in other words, Raider safety Vann McElroy, hard-hitting son of a preacher man, July through January.

The Raiders didn't trade running back Marcus Allen or quarterback Steve Beuerlein on Tuesday, but they did rid themselves of someone they apparently considered an undesirable player, sending safety Vann McElroy to the Seattle Seahawks for a draft choice. McElroy, 30, was a star in the Raider secondary until he was put on injured reserve for nine weeks in 1989 because of a hamstring pull that McElroy did not believe was serious.

Activated Monday after his two-week roster exemption expired, safety Vann McElroy is eligible to play in Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears at the Coliseum. "We'll use him if there's an opportunity where we have to use him," Coach Art Shell said. "But he'll help us on special teams." McElroy could also play in the Raiders' nickel pass coverage. Raider nose guard Bob Golic and his wife, Jackie, are expecting their first child Dec.

Since they're Raiders and march to their own drummer, nothing they do comes as a surprise. Thus it wasn't a stunner Friday when their protected list for Group B free agency included not only the names of running back Marcus Allen and linebacker Jerry Robinson--Coach Art Shell had said it would--but safety Vann McElroy and defensive tackle Bill Pickel.

An era is passing before our eyes. Remember the 11th-hour deal in 1983, when Al Davis hornswoggled the New England Patriots out of Mike Haynes and paired him with Lester Hayes to form the finest cornerback tandem the game had ever seen? Hayes is gone and likely up to Chapter Eight in "Coach Davis and Other Geniuses I Have Known," his soon-to-be-published autobiography. Haynes departs Sunday in a rare on-the-field appearance.

For Vince Evans, the other shoe dropped Saturday. Already relegated to the No. 3 spot among the team's quarterbacks with the arrival of Jay Schroeder, Evans was placed on waivers Saturday by the Raiders. It was also disclosed that running back Marcus Allen is not going to play today against the Miami Dolphins. Allen has a cast on his left arm after breaking a wrist bone last week against the Cincinnati Bengals.
