WASHINGTON - Matt Read laid on the trainer's table outside the Flyers' dressing room after yesterday's morning skate at Verizon Center as a steady stream of teammates passed by in suits. His teammates were on their way to the bus, ready to head back to the team's hotel for lunch and a pregame nap. Read wasn't going anywhere. The season is but 44 games old, but it's already been a long year for Read. He has spent much more time with the Flyers' medical staff than he could count.

Zac Rinaldo scored his first goal of the season Wednesday in the Flyers' 3-1 win over Montreal, but the feisty winger also suffered a left high-ankle sprain. He will miss about six weeks, the club announced Thursday. Rinaldo, who has been seeing time on the penalty-killing unit lately, notched the first game-winning goal of his career on Wednesday. General manager Paul Holmgren said the injury did not occur during Rinaldo's second-period fight with Montreal's Brandon Prust. The Flyers, who are also without winger Matt Read (concussion)

Andy Reid said he knows what can happen to star NFL running backs when they reach age 30 and their catalog of injuries starts to match the length of an 8-year-old's wish list at Christmas. The decline can be swift and cruel, but Reid said he did not believe that would occur with Brian Westbrook. "Brian was on a mission this year to come back, and he still is," Reid said. "When I mention that he was in phenomenal shape, I mean he really was in incredible shape, and that will help him get through this.

Keith Bogans, the player with the most scrutinized body part at the NCAA Midwest Regional, wore a protective boot around his left ankle and a glum look on his face as he boarded a motorized cart back to the Kentucky locker room yesterday. The top-seeded Wildcats (32-3) take on Marquette (26-5) today at the Metrodome for a berth in the Final Four, and may have to do it without Bogans, the 6-foot-5 senior guard who is their leader on and off the court. Bogans suffered a high ankle sprain late in the first half of Thursday night's regional semifinal victory over Wisconsin, the Wildcats' 26th consecutive win. He sat out the final 22 minutes of the game, received treatment overnight, and watched yesterday's practice from the sideline.

There were no surprises among the eight roster cuts the Eagles announced yesterday, which brings them from 75 to 67 players. They must get to the regular-season limit of 53 by 6 p.m. today. Released were: wide receivers Bam Childress and Jamal Jones, cornerbacks Therrian Fontenot and Nick Graham, running back Ryan Moats (waived/injured), safety Marcus Paschal, offensive lineman Stefan Rodgers and linebacker Pago Tagofau. Once Moats gets over the high ankle sprain he suffered at the end of the Patriots' preseason game, it will be interesting to see if someone takes a shot with the 2005 third-round pick.

Villanova wideout Matt Szczur is leaning toward playing in Saturday's regular-season finale at Delaware. But the injured all-American said he may not make up his mind until Friday or Saturday morning. Szczur has been sidelined for the last six games with a left high-ankle sprain. "It's still not 100 percent," he said of his ankle. "It's the coaching staff and myself who want to make sure that I'm 100 percent to go out there. " The 5-foot-10, 205-pounder sprained his ankle on his first touch of the Sept.

Tedy Bruschi handled the hits his teammates dished out in practice. Whether he'll get a chance for more contact in Sunday night's home game with Buffalo remains uncertain. The energetic catalyst of the New England's defense who had a mild stroke 8 1/2 months ago must await coach Bill Belichick's decision whether he'll play. "I'd like to get out there and see," Bruschi said before yesterday's practice, his second with contact. "But it's out of my control now. I'm back. I'm a player.

For the last five years, and nine of the last 10, Penn had opened the season against Dartmouth. In eight games, neither side scored more than 24 points. And six times, the winning margin was eight points or fewer. Quakers coach Al Bagnoli thinks at least the first part of that tradition is about to change, now that the teams are meeting in Week 3 in the Ivy League opener for each. "I'm not sure what they've done, but we've taken all of the preseason to go over everything we're going to see with Dartmouth," Bagnoli said.

Sources familiar with the situation have confirmed a Baseball America report that Villanova's two-sport standout, Matt Szczur, most likely will forgo the NFL to continue pursuing a baseball career with the Chicago Cubs. Szczur, who is in Florida training for what was supposed to be his appearance in the Jan. 29 Senior Bowl, was not available for comment. He will not be playing in that game now. Last June, he was taken in the fifth round of the major league draft and signed for $100,000, with another $500,000 due on Feb. 10 if he did not opt to play football.
