Newly acquired wide receiver Keenan McCardell will make his season debut tomorrow and might even start for the San Diego Chargers in their road game against the Carolina Panthers. The Chargers obtained McCardell from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for two draft picks on Tuesday, just before the NFL trading deadline. McCardell was the league's last holdout, skipping the first six games with Tampa Bay because he was unhappy his contract was not renegotiated. "It's not out of the realm of possibility that Keenan starts," coach Marty Schottenheimer said yesterday.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers receiver Keenan McCardell was fined $12,500 for two illegal blocks in Sunday's loss to the Carolina Panthers, the National Football League said. The second block tore the ligaments in the left knee of defensive end Kavika Pittman, who will miss the rest of the season. Carolina coach John Fox told reporters after the game that he would send tapes of the play to the league office. McCardell was not called for a penalty. McCardell said the blocks were legal and that he has filed an appeal of the fine.

Buffalo quarterback Rob Johnson will miss tonight's preseason game against the Eagles with a sprained index finger on his right throwing hand.

With his index finger wrapped and taped to his middle finger, Johnson said he hoped to practice early next week.

Matt Bryant, who has not played since pulling a hamstring Oct. 5, may kick for the New York Giants against the Eagles tomorrow. Bryant kicked all week in practice and coach Jim Fassel yesterday said he did well. "He banged them out here [yesterday]," Fassel said. "I wanted to see him with full 100 percent power on the ball and he did that. He's got good power on the ball now, and he's not sore. " Brett Conway has hit 9 of 12 field-goal attempts since taking over for Bryant.

Jacksonville Jaguars receiver R. Jay Soward will miss the first four games of the season for violating the NFL substance-abuse policy, the club announced yesterday. The Jaguars placed Soward on the reserve list for non-football-related illness before the final game of a disappointing 2000 rookie season. Coach Tom Coughlin fined Soward numerous times last season for team violations. At one point, the coach began sending a limousine service to Soward's house to ensure he would make team meetings on time.

Steve Spurrier was his usual maverick self when he arrived in Carlisle, Pa., for his first NFL training camp as a head coach yesterday. He barely had unpacked his bags when he immediately made it clear he would rather be somewhere else. "I don't understand the importance of getting away, to tell you the truth," Spurrier said as the Washington Redskins checked into their dorms at Dickinson College. Spurrier, an avid golfer whose first words when he walked into the room before the news conference were, "Shot 75 today," said he might move training camp back to Redskin Park in the Washington suburbs next season.

Edgerrin James could be a bargain for some NFL team. James' new agent, Drew Rosenhaus, said yesterday the Indianapolis Colts were not demanding a first-round draft pick in exchange for the former two-time NFL rushing champion. James, the Colts' career rushing leader, was designated the team's franchise player last month. Now Rosenhaus, who said he spoke with Colts president Bill Polian yesterday, is looking for a trade. "The bottom line is that I talked to the Colts today, and he doesn't think he can get a long-term deal done," Rosenhaus said in a telephone interview.

Tampa Bay receiver Keenan McCardell was fined $12,500 by the NFL for two illegal blocks, including one that sidelined Carolina lineman Kavika Pittman for the rest of the season. The 12th-year pro also was cited by the league for using an illegal crackback block on a running play during the first quarter of the Buccaneers' 12-9 overtime loss to the Panthers last Sunday. McCardell said yesterday the blocks were legal and he has filed an appeal of the fine. "The one on Kavika Pittman wasn't a high-low," he said.

The Dallas Cowboys could have some offensive-line help arriving soon. Derek Kennard, who decided to retire during training camp, may be back. The Cowboys still own Kennard's rights, and coach Barry Switzer said: "Derek could really help our depth. I was told he would be in this week. We need him, and we're committed to keeping him on the team. " Switzer said there was still little hope that linebacker Darrin Smith would end his holdout. The Cowboys have offered Smith $425,000; Smith has said he will not play for less than $750,000.

Perhaps the most talked about topic in our region these past few weeks has been who will be the Eagles' next coach. It blew away talk about the fiscal cliff, what to do about Iran, and many other issues of lesser importance. Everyone has an opinion, and everywhere I go, people don't hesitate to tell me their choice. From that decidedly unscientific poll, I can tell you that the overwhelming people's choice is "Chuckie," a k a Jon Gruden. For what it's worth, he's my choice, too. The main indictment against Andy Reid was that he never won a Super Bowl, and that is the standard that we judge all coaches by. When talking about prospective coaches, that's the question we always ask - does he have the stuff to make us Super Bowl champs?

WHEN SAINTS wide receiver Robert Meachem stripped the ball from Redskins linebacker Kareem Moore on Sunday, he not only turned what was an interception going one way into a touchdown going the other, he threw a hand grenade into fantasy leagues across the land. Meachem's thievery resulted in all sorts of confusion and rancor. Wide receivers don't score touchdowns on fumbles by the defense very often, and the scoring systems for a number of leagues came under intense scrutiny from irate players.

Santana Moss and Antwaan Randle El were unable to practice again yesterday, putting the Washington Redskins in a perilous position at receiver for tomorrow's game against the Eagles. Moss is sidelined with a bruised heel and is listed as questionable on the injury report, but neither Moss nor coach Joe Gibbs sounded optimistic that it would heal sufficiently before game time. "Same that it felt all week. Sore. Hurts. Painful," Moss said. "I couldn't tell you yes or no right now. It's one of those things where I'll just have to see how it feels on Sunday.

As expected, the Dallas Cowboys cut Drew Bledsoe yesterday. Bledsoe, who lost his quarterback job to Tony Romo after six starts last season, was among a number of aging players cut as teams adjusted their rosters to get more salary-cap room for the free-agency period that began today. Bledsoe, 35, was the No. 1 overall pick by New England in 1993. He was invited back by owner Jerry Jones, although he is sure to be a backup at a reduced salary. Also cut was Joe Horn, one of the leaders of the New Orleans Saints during their 2005 season in Hurricane Katrina-enforced exile.

Warren Sapp says his food repeatedly was tampered with when he was on road trips with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers - especially in Philadelphia. Sapp, now an Oakland Raiders defensive tackle, now refuses to eat out on road trips. "You get your food poisoned," said Sapp, a Buc from 1995 to 2003. "They don't want you out there on Sunday. You don't think about it. It just got crazy. " He pointed specifically to three incidents: Before the NFC Championship Game in Philadelphia at the end of the 2002 season, which the Bucs won on the way to the Super Bowl title; before a divisional playoff at Green Bay in January 1998; and at New Orleans, where the Bucs played a road game during the 1998 season.

Less than 15 minutes after his San Diego Chargers ended the Indianapolis Colts' hopes for a perfect season yesterday with a stunning 26-17 victory at the RCA Dome, Marty Schottenheimer was on the phone with an old friend. Schottenheimer had a team official call Don Shula, whose legacy as the coach of the only undefeated team in modern NFL history, the 1972 Miami Dolphins, Schottenheimer helped preserve. "He was obviously excited," Schottenheimer said. Shula wasn't the only one. In a game they had to have to stay alive for the postseason, the Chargers used a stifling first-half defensive effort and a gutsy fourth-quarter comeback to improve to 9-5 and drop the Colts to 13-1.

Hi, I'm Terrell, and I'll be your waiter this afternoon. . . . Unless, of course, you're Dan Dierdorf or Dick Enberg. The CBS broadcast duo for yesterday's Eagles-Chargers game was distinctly unimpressed by Terrell Owens' latest piece of end-zone pantomime after catching a 4-yard touchdown pass for the 100th scoring reception of his career. Owens took a hand towel out of his pants, draped it over his left arm, and carried the ball off the field as if he were a server carrying a tray.

Injuries finally caught up with the New England Patriots. San Diego's explosive offense added to the misery. Even Marty Schottenheimer knew something wasn't right with the defending Super Bowl champions. After his Chargers beat host New England yesterday, 41-17, the San Diego coach suggested the win may have had as much to do with who wasn't playing for New England as the superior performances of Drew Brees, LaDainian Tomlinson and Antonio Gates. "What they've done is remarkable," he said of the Patriots, who had their 21-game home winning streak ended.
