Nagging injuries caught up with a couple of Phillies regulars, forcing Charlie Hayes and Gregg Jefferies out of last night's starting lineup. Jefferies, a late scratch, had been playing with a strained right hamstring. Team doctor Phillip Marone said Jefferies may miss three or four games. Gene Schall started in Jefferies' place at first base. Hayes, who played in 132 of the team's first 134 games, had been playing with torn cartilage in his right knee. He aggravated the injury sliding into home plate Monday night.

Charles Strange was on the job in the boiler room at Tasty Baking Co. when he squatted to check a sump pump. He went to stand up and heard his right knee pop. "I walked around a little and I couldn't straighten my leg up," said Strange, 32, of the city's Mayfair section. So began a painful journey that eventually led to an experimental procedure in which his own laboratory-grown cells were used to repair the damaged articular cartilage in his knee. In a three-step process, a surgeon at Germantown Hospital and Medical Center first removed tiny bits of healthy cartilage tissue from Strange's knee.

Billionaire Ron Burkle will not be part of Sacramento's bid to keep the Kings after all. Sacramento mayor Kevin Johnson said Monday that a conflict of interest forced Burkle to back out. Instead, Johnson said the Southern California businessman and co-owner of the NHL's Pittsburgh Penguins will focus on the development around a proposed new downtown arena - and not the arena itself. Burkle is part-owner of Relativity Sports, which manages some NBA players' careers. Johnson said the conflict surfaced during a meeting with NBA commissioner David Stern and league owners last week and "it won't slow us up. " Burkle had been expected to lead the development of a Sacramento arena.

The Carolina Panthers learned yesterday that linebacker Lamar Lathon will be lost for the season and safety Mike Minter will be sidelined longer than originally thought. Lathon, a starting outside linebacker since the franchise's expansion season in 1995, has had worsening knee problems. He underwent arthroscopic surgery last week to have loose bodies cleaned out, his fourth knee operation of 1998. Minter, a starting strong safety, also underwent arthroscopic knee surgery last week, but had been expected to return to the lineup this week in preparation for Sunday's home game against Green Bay. The team said Minter, who is expected to be released from the hospital tomorrow, would likely miss six to eight weeks.

The Cincinnati Reds put third baseman Terry Pendleton on the 15-day disabled list yesterday with a sore left knee. It's the second time in the last three weeks that the Reds have put Pendleton on the DL. He fouled a ball off his right foot and suffered a hairline fracture in the big toe on June 22. Cincinnati put him on the DL the next day, but the National League voided the move three days later, saying he was not injured severely enough....

Cleveland Browns starting quarterback Tim Couch probably will not play tomorrow. Coach Butch Davis said yesterday that backup quarterback Kelly Holcomb probably will start against the Kansas City Chiefs. Couch has a sore right arm after tearing scar tissue near his elbow in the preseason. "It could be a few days. It could be a few weeks," Couch said. "It's just basically according to how quickly my body will heal. " Couch, who tore scar tissue near his elbow in the exhibition season, was encouraged following an evaluation Thursday by orthopedic specialist Dr. James Andrews of Birmingham, Ala. Andrews told Couch he needs to throw the ball, rather than rest his arm, to help his recovery.

There is a chance that Jesse Campbell, the Eagles' No. 2 draft choice, will have his rookie year put on hold in the next 24 hours. Campbell, the 22-year-old strong safety, flew home to Vanceboro, N.C., yesterday for further examination of his right knee by Dr. Michael Fagenbaum, an orthopedic surgeon. According to Dick Bell, Campbell's agent, previous examinations revealed that Campbell might need arthroscopic surgery to repair possible cartilage damage. Campbell had the same knee scoped last fall at North Carolina State.

Ted Marchibroda plans to make rookie Marshall Faulk earn the multimillion- dollar contract the running back signed with the Indianapolis Colts. "A guy like Marshall, without question, you have to give him the ball," the Colts coach said yesterday. "I think you're talking about 30 times a game, passing and running. " After signing the NFL's richest rookie contract - $17.2 million for seven years - on Sunday, Faulk practiced yesterday for the first time. "It's going to take me some time, but I don't think it's going to take me the whole camp to catch up," said Faulk, the No. 2 pick in the draft.

Holy Ghost Prep's Jack Kalmes has received recruiting interest from several Division III basketball programs, including Catholic University, Gettysburg, and Ursinus. A possible bonus for one of those suitors, in case it's ever needed in a pinch, is his ability and willingness to be a fill-in goalkeeper in soccer. "Last year's team needed a backup, so I offered to do it," Kalmes said. "I mostly got garbage time, but I still enjoyed it. I was able to get an appreciation for the high skill level of our guys.

If truth is the first casualty in an activity as frivolous as war, how can it stand a chance in a serious business like baseball or football or ice hockey? As a society, we may accept shamelessly distorted reporting about politics and government, but we expect - nay, demand - the full, unvarnished truth in such vital matters as knee cartilage, surgical sutures, and tight hamstrings. So it was no surprise when Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. felt compelled Monday to address reporters in Clearwater about the muddied waters surrounding Chase Utley's status.

Years ago, when children tore an anterior cruciate ligament, the conventional wisdom was to delay surgery until their bones were nearly finished growing. That's because the surgery to repair the ligament, found in the knee, carried a slight risk of what doctors call a "growth disturbance. " Among other possible issues, that meant one leg could end up shorter than the other. A new study from Children's Hospital of Philadelphia suggests it is better to go ahead with surgery after all, because a delay may lead to other types of injury.

Soul president Ron Jaworski reiterated yesterday that the team would be very interested in signing Mitchell, but contacting him has been the problem.

They didn't call him Coach Stefanski, but they could have. Basically, that's what Penn safety Kevin Stefanski became when he missed most of the season with torn knee cartilage. During the week, he would be in the film room across from head coach Al Bagnoli's office, and on game day, the Quakers' safeties would get off the field and go straight to Stefanski. "When I realized I wasn't going to be able to be out there, I had to be there in some capacity," Stefanski said. "That was the easiest thing for me to do. I'd stand 10 yards off the line of scrimmage at safety depth and almost go through it mentally as if I was in the game.

Kurt Warner's two MVP awards were of no use to him yesterday: Marc Bulger was named starting quarterback of the St. Louis Rams. Coach Mike Martz made his choice a day after Bulger's strong play in the second half of the Rams' 27-24 overtime victory over San Francisco. "Marc Bulger will be our quarterback this week," Martz said. "Where that goes, who knows? How long that is, let's not worry about it. " Warner sustained a concussion in the first half of the opening 23-13 loss to the Giants, but has not missed any practice and ran the scout team last week.

The bullet has been removed, the wounds have healed. Dennis Weathersby can sprint and backpedal and do everything expected from an NFL cornerback. The toughest part is still ahead: getting beyond the emotional scars from the drive-by shooting. As he deals with those emotions, the Cincinnati Bengals' fourth-round draft pick from Oregon State will begin his NFL career and has been cleared to participate in training camp next week. "The situation that happened to me is kind of tough to talk about," said Weathersby, speaking yesterday in what he said would be the only time he discusses the incident.
