Former Pro Bowl linebacker LaVar Arrington was hospitalized yesterday in Cheverly, Md., with serious but not life-threatening injuries after his motorcycle crashed on a highway ramp. His agent, Carl Poston, said Arrington suffered a broken arm, at least one broken rib and a leg contusion. Arrington lost control of his 2007 Kawasaki ZX-14 motorcycle and hit a guardrail, Maryland State Police Sgt. Russell Newell said. He said police did not know how fast Arrington was traveling.

If Penn State linebacker LaVar Arrington catapults over Ohio State's line for a sack, or runs down a speedy running back from behind, or performs any other amazing task that leaves the broadcasters in the ABC-TV booth hyperventilating tomorrow, it's likely the Buckeyes won't even raise an eyebrow. After all, just about every day in practice, and just about every Saturday afternoon in the fall, they see similar feats from Na'il Diggs, who is as big (6-foot-4, 235 pounds) and perhaps as quick and athletic as Arrington and has been known to jump over blockers.

Numbed by the lack of drama and the absence of competition at yesterday's Penn State-Illinois game, the Beaver Stadium crowd of 96,508 was library quiet by the third quarter. Someone would have to drop out of the cloudless blue sky, it seemed, to lift the Nittany Lions faithful off their blue-and-white cushions. Well, someone did. The fabulous outside linebacker, sophomore LaVar Arrington. The dreary Illini, down, 21-0, and hopelessly out, were going for it on fourth and 1 at the Penn State 31-yard line.

Courtney Brown and LaVar Arrington have found themselves next to each other often in football matters, but yesterday when it happened, there was no quarterback in sight. They usually met in the opponent's backfield, and quarterbacks never were happy to see them, but none of that mattered for a triumphant moment at Madison Square Garden. It was almost as if Penn State coach Joe Paterno had written the script, because team mattered. The two Nittany Lions became only the third tandem of teammates to be selected with the two top picks in the NFL draft.

Pro Bowl linebacker LaVar Arrington agreed to an 8-year, $80 million contract extension with the Washington Redskins, his agent said yesterday. Carl Poston said the deal includes $26.5 million in bonuses, most of which become available immediately. Under Arrington's current contract, he would have earned just under $10 million in salary and bonuses for the next three seasons. Arrington was selected to his third consecutive Pro Bowl last week. He has career highs this season with 112 tackles, seven forced fumbles and 13 quarterback pressures.

LaVar Arrington had a conciliatory tone toward Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder over the weekend, even as the linebacker awaits the outcome of a grievance over $6.5 million he feels is missing from his contract. "We're grown-ups," Arrington said Saturday. "I've had my time to be upset, and it's not going to get me anywhere. "The most mature thing to do is see where we can go with it. That doesn't mean I'm going to be weak about it, but I'm willing to see what type of resolution we can get out of this whole thing.

LaVar Arrington criticized the Washington Redskins for failing to support him during his recent knee injury, an injury that forced him to have another surgery last week. "It's like nothing in terms of the support from them, it's like nothing," Arrington told reporters at Redskins Park yesterday. "It's like, just let me disappear and die. " Arrington, walking on crutches, revealed that he had a second surgery last Wednesday on the same knee that forced him to miss 11 games last season.

Washington Redskins linebacker LaVar Arrington will miss Monday's home game against the Dallas Cowboys, having undergone arthroscopic surgery yesterday to repair torn cartilage in his right knee. Arrington will be evaluated on a weekly basis, the Redskins said on their Web site. He sprained the knee in a season-opening win over Tampa Bay. Earlier in the day, Arrington was fined $5,000 for a hit leveled on running back Tiki Barber in Sunday's game against the New York Giants.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - Ten weeks before the debut of Bill O'Brien as Penn State's head football coach, the sun shone brilliantly Saturday on Beaver Stadium. Outside the huge facility, someone parked a car near the statue of O'Brien's iconic predecessor, Joe Paterno, every few minutes for a quick photo before driving off. While it's never too early to be thinking football at Penn State, no matter the month or the weather, the subject of spending fall Saturdays in Happy Valley for some will be a cause for pain and shame given the events of the last 71/2 months, since shocking allegations of child sexual abuse were brought against former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky.

The last time you may have paid attention to the rest of the NFC East, the New York Giants were certain to fire Tom Coughlin as head coach, Dallas' Bill Parcells was warning that Tony Romo could not yet walk on water, and Washington stunk. A few months later, Coughlin is still on New York's sideline, Romo has a new head coach in Wade Phillips, and the Redskins . . . still stink. But last year's trash often becomes this year's treasure. The gap between first and fourth isn't that large, and this weekend's draft will be the latest competition in a division that sent three of its four teams to the playoffs last year.

New York Giants linebacker LaVar Arrington equated the players union with organized crime yesterday, 24 hours before he was scheduled to testify before Congress at a hearing involving his former agent. Lawmakers will be looking into the NFL Players Association's suspension of Arrington's former agent, Carl Poston, stemming from his handling of a contract the linebacker signed with Washington near the end of the 2003 season. Arrington contends the union acted unfairly in taking away Poston's livelihood.

NOTABLE The star player who meant so much to the franchise is meeting his ex-team today in an NFC East showdown for the first time since he was unceremoniously dumped last spring. We speak, of course, of Giants linebacker LaVar Arrington. Arrington will play his old team, the Redskins, this afternoon in the Meadowlands. He never fit in once Joe Gibbs came back to the Redskins in early 2004. He didn't get along with defensive coordinator Gregg Williams or his position coach, Dale Lindsey.

Paul Posluszny - chest puffed, jaw raised, hands clasped firmly behind his back - stood as rigid as a parade-ground Marine yesterday as he answered hundreds of repetitive questions in a manner as neat and clipped as Beaver Stadium's emerald turf. It was Penn State's media day, and dealing with the media will be the Nittany Lions cocaptain's responsibility this season. So while it was nowhere near as pleasant as planting a running back in the dirt or drilling a tight end, Posluszny dutifully spewed out his not-too-informative answers with a name-rank-and-serial-number rapidity.

The Jacksonville Jaguars at least partly filled a pressing need at linebacker by signing Nick Greisen to a 2-year contract yesterday. Greisen, an unrestricted free agent who started 12 games for the New York Giants last season, should compete for the starting job left vacant when Akin Ayodele signed with Dallas. The move also gives the Jags more flexibility in this weekend's NFL draft. Coach Jack Del Rio had planned to "attack" the linebacker position during the draft, but with Greisen in the mix, Jacksonville could go in another direction.

Washington Redskins coach Joe Gibbs reacted sharply yesterday after LaVar Arrington discussed the three-time Pro Bowl linebacker's expected departure from the team. Arrington told the Washington Times he expects the Redskins to try to trade him or cut him in the coming months because of his high salary. If that happens, Arrington said he might retire. "It's not a given that I'll continue playing if the Redskins get rid of me," Arrington told the newspaper. "I don't really want to play for anyone else.
