NFL rushing champion Edgerrin James failed to attend the first day of the Indianapolis Colts' summer practice yesterday. "Edgerrin wasn't here and I don't know why he's not here," coach Jim Mora said. "We've tried to make some contact with him, but we haven't had much of a response. He should be here. " Receiver Reggie Wayne, a friend of James' since the two played for the Miami Hurricanes, said he was in touch with James last weekend and expected him to be in Indianapolis.

Bill Parcells, out of coaching the last 3 years, said he met recently with Cowboys owner Jerry Jones for 5 hours and would consider returning to the NFL as a head coach - in the right situation. It's possible the Cowboys job will be open soon. The Dallas Morning News, citing sources close to Jones and Parcells, reported yesterday that Jones has already decided to fire coach Dave Campo. Sources close to both men, according to the newspaper, said their discussion last week at a New Jersey airport included talk of everything from potential salary - Parcells wants at least $3 million per year - to control of personnel, which Jones has no plans of giving up. Sources close to Jones and Parcells said Jones already has decided to fire Campo after the Cowboys' season finale at Washington next Sunday.

Washington Redskins quarterback Brad Johnson sprained a ligament in his left knee when hit on a pass play during the final touchdown drive in Monday night's 27-21 loss to Tennessee. Trainer Bubba Tyer said yesterday that Johnson won't practice today, and he will probably list the quarterback as "questionable" for Sunday's game at Arizona. "I'm concerned to some degree," Tyer said. Johnson was hurt on a pass play to Stephen Davis. He stayed in the game, and trainers applied ice to the knee after the game.

In their search for stability and consistency, for predictability amid the chaos, the Dallas Cowboys have settled on Deion Sanders. Which tells you plenty. Sanders played wide receiver and cornerback, more than 100 plays overall. He caught nine passes for 87 yards on offense and had only a couple of dinky passes caught underneath him on defense. In the first quarter, he knocked a ballcarrier up in the air and caused a fumble. In the fourth quarter, he also had a controversial fumble of his own. In between, the Cowboys played a terrible game and lost to the Chicago Bears, 22-6.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers' coaching search appeared near an end yesterday when Minnesota Vikings defensive coordinator Tony Dungy arrived in Tampa and met with team owner Malcolm Glazer. Dungy is the leading candidate for the job, vacated by the Dec. 27 firing of Sam Wyche. Dungy, who had dinner with Glazer last night, was optimistic yesterday during an interview on One on One Sports Radio Network in Northbrook, Ill., where he was an analyst during the NFL playoffs. "I'm going to meet with Mr. Glazer . . . and, hopefully, that will go well and I think we'll be on our way. " Team officials continued to deny a Tampa Tribune report that an offer had been made.

Jimmy Johnson, introduced yesterday as the second head coach in Dallas Cowboys history, responded to an aggressive line of questioning by saying that no one truly will be able to replace his predecessor, the legendary Tom Landry. But Johnson, sensitive to the controversy surrounding Landry's abrupt dismissal after 29 seasons, pleaded with the Cowboys' fans to give him a chance to create his own legacy. "I think Tom Landry is one of the finest individuals and finest coaches that I would ever hope to know," said Johnson, who guided the University of Miami to a 52-9 record during the past five seasons.

The parameters of the personnel responsibilities will be put in writing, the Boston Globe reported.

Jimmy Johnson took over as the second coach in the history of the Dallas Cowboys yesterday, and immediately apologized to Tom Landry for whatever pain he might have caused him. Landry, the Cowboys' coach for 29 years, was fired by new franchise owner Jerry Jones on Saturday. Johnson, a former roommate and football teammate of Jones' at the University of Arkansas, was installed as the team's new coach. "Tom Landry is one of the finest people and one of the finest coaches I would ever want to know," said Johnson, who left the University of Miami to take the Dallas job. "It hits me hard when I hear people say I have shown disrespect for Tom Landry.

Barry Switzer, a determined look on that Marlboro Man face, hopped off a grandstand as confidently and quickly as a Pony Express rider dismounting. As the Cowboys coach strode toward a ragged crowd of Super Bowl inquisitors yesterday morning, a nervous club employee approached. Switzer listened attentively to the message, wrapped a reassuring arm around the young woman's shoulders and, after a brief response, sent her away smiling. He then resumed his short journey in the manner of a politician working a Labor Day barbecue - shaking hands, laughing, hugging.

The Dallas Cowboys opened training camp in earnest yesterday with an injured veteran getting released, a tardy player getting a big fine and a rookie free agent giving up. Players also got a day to get acclimated to the baking heat of Wichita Falls, Texas, without pads. Full gear isn't usually used on the first day, but coach Dave Campo has repeatedly said this will be a physically punishing few weeks. "It's been a while since our last minicamp, so we've got to get our football legs underneath us a little bit," Campo said.

IRVING, Texas - Jerry Jones replaced coach Wade Phillips yesterday. Which is to say that the Cowboys owner and general manager sat down on the same chair in the interview ranch at the team's Valley Ranch training complex that Phillips had occupied a few moments earlier. Rumors that Wade could be dismissed at the end of this season have persisted all year. Now that the Cowboys have won three straight to win the NFC East and earn a home game against the Eagles Saturday night in the first round of the playoffs, the whispers have abated somewhat.

SAN ANTONIO - Wade Phillips has spent his entire coaching career futilely trying to establish his own identity. He's been blowing a whistle for 37 years, the last 31 of them in the NFL. And yet, to many, he still is "Bum's Boy. " Never mind that he celebrated his 60th birthday last month. Never mind that his daddy retired from coaching nearly a quarter century ago. Never mind that he's taken two franchises to the playoffs as a head coach and is considered one of the best defensive coaches on the planet.

Bill Parcells is often described as beefy. That's probably because the more he cooks, the tougher he gets. And because the Dallas coach has undoubtedly been broiling ever since the Cowboys were roasted by Miami on Thanksgiving Day, you've got to believe that his recipe for Sunday's game with the Eagles involves turning up the heat during practice this week. "It's hard to tell," Dallas offensive tackle Torrin Tucker said yesterday when asked if Parcells had intensified workouts after the Cowboys' second loss in three weeks.

Bill Parcells wore a silver and blue striped tie - Cowboys' colors - to his introductory news conference in Dallas last night. Parcells, who became the sixth coach in Cowboys' history after signing a four-year contract, ended more than a week of speculation about his return to the NFL. The two-time Super Bowl winner was hired three days after owner Jerry Jones fired Dave Campo. Jones described Parcells as the "most qualified coach in our sport. " Armed with a deal worth $17.1 million, Parcells will try to turn around a team that went 15-33 in the last three seasons.

Two elements temporarily stand in the way of Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones' presumed search for a successor to coach Dave Campo, who is expected to be fired after Sunday's game at Washington. Jones met last week with former New York Jets coach Bill Parcells, who previously coached New England and the New York Giants. Parcells is asking for considerable clout over Cowboys football operations while publicly insisting he is not after absolute control, according to ESPN.com, which cited team and NFL sources.

First of all, there probably is no truth to the rumor that Jerry Jones gave Dave Campo a Christmas gift here last night: a cigarette and a blindfold. But that sort of suspicion was raised after Jones, the Cowboys' ego-driven owner, spent a lot of time before the game with the Eagles talking about the five-hour conversation he had with Bill Parcells on Wednesday. In light of Campo's fading job security as head coach of the Cowboys, the Parcells chat had been a big issue for the Dallas media nearly all of last week.

Like countless other coaches in his position, Dave Campo was relying on his players' continued effort as proof that he was doing a good job. That all went out the window Sunday. Campo's Dallas Cowboys were embarrassed, 37-7, by the New York Giants. That prompted open speculation in the Dallas-Fort Worth media that Campo was finished. Columnist Randy Galloway of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram called him the NFL's version of Trent Lott, the controversial Senate Republican leader. Most important for Campo, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he didn't believe the team was making progress.
