First things first. While the Eagles might have jumped back into the free-agency pool by re-signing backup center Bubba Miller and scheduling a weekend visit with Miami Dolphins fullback Stanley Pritchett, the club's personnel evaluators have something else on their minds: The draft. Eagles football operations director Tom Modrak was in Florida yesterday checking out talent, and that state, as usual, is full of it this year. The Sunshine State was the collegiate home to: receivers Peter Warrick, Ron Dugans and Laveranues Coles, defensive tackles Corey Simon and Jerry Johnson and kicker Sebastian Janikowski, all from Florida State; tight end Bubba Franks, from Miami; and Florida receiver Travis Taylor, to name a few. That's not even mentioning other players who call Florida their offseason home and train there.

For the first time since 1982, Cal Ripken missed a start because of injury last night. Ripken, who left the Baltimore Orioles' season opener Monday in the third inning with stiffness in his lower back, began the game against Tampa Bay in the dugout while Willis Otanez took over at third base. "I could beat my head against the wall and go do it, but it doesn't make sense," Ripken said. "'We're going to just work toward being ready tomorrow. " Last Sept. 20, Ripken voluntarily ended his record streak of playing in 2,632 games by sitting out the Orioles' final home game against the New York Yankees.

Darren Daulton sauntered into the Phillies' clubhouse at Joe Robbie Stadium as if he were getting ready to pull on his uniform and play against the Marlins. It didn't happen, of course. He was just visiting his teammates yesterday afternoon. But Daulton, two weeks into an attempt both to rehabilitate his right knee and salvage his career, continues to insist that someday it will. "I still plan on coming back," he said. He conceded he has no way of knowing when. He acknowledged that it might not be this season and that, in truth, it might not happen at all. All that is certain is that for three to five hours a day, six days a week, he reports to the Phillies' conditioning facility in Clearwater, Fla., and works with rehab trainer Hap Hudson.

The line on Sid Fernandez has always been the same. When he's healthy, he's among the best pitchers in the game. A few times a year, though, he is sidelined with one of several nagging injuries. Tonight, Fernandez will miss his scheduled start because of pain in his right knee. The veteran lefthander said he hoped a few days' rest and an anti-inflammatory injection would head off a more serious problem. "I'm not going to do anything to inflame it," Fernandez said yesterday.

The recruitment of Garret Jackson, talented student-athlete at Penn Charter School, is taking place on two levels. For his football prowess, the 6-2, 285-pound Jackson, a two-way tackle, is receiving correspondence from West Virginia, Virginia, Fordham, Temple and Villanova. Then, there are those other colleges that keep sending him mail. "Art schools," he said. "A whole bunch of places I never heard of before. Places I didn't even know existed. " When the incredibly quick Jackson is not blowing people off the ball or making life difficult for opposing quarterbacks, as he did yesterday, when Charter defeated host Episcopal Academy, 10-7, in the Inter-Ac League, he draws.

If the Inter-Ac League were to decide its football title tomorrow in a marathon round-robin session, Bill Gallagher knows who would win. The team he happens to coach, defending champ Penn Charter. "I'm confident of that. Absolutely. We're better than last year," said Gallagher, who needs five victories to hit 100 in his two-school, 17-year career. "Unfortunately, the league doesn't start Saturday. It starts in mid- October, and to win it you've got to be healthy then. Especially us, because we have no depth whatsoever.

Brandon Miller is one of the more vocal players on Upper Moreland's football team. The 6-foot-2, 230-pound Miller, a standout tackle and inside linebacker for a squad that is off to a 2-1 start and trying for its first winning season since 1994, often will yell out, "Yeah, baby!" after making a particularly vicious tackle. The hulking senior also made some noise, quite literally, last spring when he was a chorus member in the school's spring musical, Grease. Though he did endure some kidding from his teammates, Miller says the experience was enjoyable.

For hundreds of successful college football players all over America, today is judgment day. "I remember it real well," said Eagles veteran Mike Quick. "It was kind of like the anticipation before one of your biggest Christmases. You can't sleep the night before. You feel helpless, just waiting to see what happens, where you're going. It's what you've worked for for a long time. All the work, all the blood, sweat and tears, and the goal was just a few hours away. " Quick was the 20th player selected in the NFL's 1982 draft.

"I didn't come here to be a DH. I came here to play football. " - Eagles defensive tackle Keith Millard While Keith Millard was running 220-yard sprints in the furnace that is the Arizona desert . . . While he jogged in 20-minute intervals, in foot-deep sand . . . While he wore out his barbells and climbed every hill in Cave Creek, Ariz., . . . One thought occupied Millard's mind. Hint: It had nothing to do with being a third-down, pass-rush specialist for the Eagles this season.
