FOR WHO? For what? Forever. Forever, Ricky Watters will live with his infamous dismissal, his implication that his health was more important than winning a football game. It is what many fans will remember, with disgust, on Sunday when he addresses them as an honorary captain before the Eagles play the Lions. It is ugly irony, then, that, forever, Watters will live with pain he suffers from carrying and catching footballs at Veterans Stadium, among other places; pain, from head to toe. "I got it all," he said.

Enigmatic tight end Jason Dunn sped off from Veterans Stadium in a bit of a snit yesterday before the final practice of the Eagles' fifth and final minicamp. The reasons for his demeanor became obvious later in the day. Dunn got cut. Dunn missed the first two, and the last four, games last season because of a torn posterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. He had not participated in minicamp practices, but he had attended them. Coach Andy Reid said Dunn was excused for "personal reasons," but declined to elaborate.

The comeback of Eagles cornerback Ben Smith from last season's major reconstructive knee surgery has been dealt a severe blow. Smith, the Daily News has learned, has been informed by several orthopedic specialists that his repaired left knee needs another operation before his return to football is possible. According to Otho Davis, the Eagles' head trainer, Smith has experienced instability in the knee that can be corrected only by further surgery to tighten the medial collateral ligament.

New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez might have surgery this offseason to stabilize the patella ligament in his left knee, which was injured during college. Sanchez, who just completed his rookie season, won't need any procedures on his right knee, which sustained a sprained posterior cruciate ligament earlier this season. He had both knees examined by team doctors this week, and also had them looked at by Dr. James Andrews in Birmingham, Ala., on Wednesday. General manager Mike Tannenbaum said Sanchez would be ready "well before training camp" if he elects to have the procedure, which isn't considered major, but could miss some early offseason workouts.

Two Washington Redskins players and a team intern were injured when the vehicle they were riding in overturned yesterday in Colonial Beach, Va. State police spokeswoman Mary Evans identified the injured as Cory Raymer, 23; Brian Thure, 23, and Hugo Garcia, 26. Raymer is a second-year center and Thure a second-year guard. Garcia is an intern working with the team's strength and conditioning coach, according to Mike McCall, the Redskins' public relations director. A fourth person in the 1995 GMC, Anthony Giordano, was not injured.

Jason Dunn, who was injured on the second offensive play of the preseason, will be out six to eight weeks, the Eagles said last night. An MRI exam revealed that the third-year tight end has a second-degree sprain of the medial collateral ligament and a partially torn posterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. Dunn is not expected to require surgery, and the ligaments will be allowed to heal on their own. Dunn is likely to need a brace when he returns. The injury dealt a blow to the Eagles' plans to incorporate the tight end more into their offense.

One would never think a baseball player at Northeast High could have something in common with Eagles quarterback Randall Cunningham. Mike Ferro does - not that he's thrilled about it. Last June, Ferro suffered a torn posterior cruciate ligament (behind the kneecap) in his right knee when the car he was driving was rammed from behind. Cunningham suffered that injury, among others, on his left knee in the first game of the 1991 season on a hit by Green Bay linebacker Bryce Paup.

It's a good thing Michael Timpson is coming back. Wide receiver Chris T. Jones, who caught 70 balls as a starter last season, might not see action for a while, Eagles coach Ray Rhodes said at his press conference yesterday. The pain and swelling in his right knee are simply too much to bear. Rhodes has had enough of Jones gimping around. He wants him healthy, so he is shutting him down for a while. "I'd have to look at two or three weeks to see if it will come around," Rhodes said of Jones's knee.

The struggle continues. Enigmatic Eagles tight end Jason Dunn will miss the rest of the season with a torn posterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. So, too, will backup tight end Kaseem Sinceno, because of a torn ligament on top of his right ankle. While Sinceno's injury appeared ominous from the start, Dunn initially was thought to have injured the medial collateral ligament. That might have allowed him to return after tomorrow's game against St. Louis at Veterans Stadium.

Michael Chang won his first title of the year yesterday with a straight-set victory over Paul Haarhuis of the Netherlands in the MFS Pro Championships at the Longwood Cricket Club in Brookline, Mass. Displaying the crisp style and endless hustle that has always made him a crowd favorite, Chang, the fourth seed, won the final match, 6-3, 6-4. It was a sweet victory in a tough year for Chang, one in which his once-high ranking dropped to 22 and he suffered a number of injuries.

All running backs get knocked down. All running backs get back up. That's the nature of the position. Except for those two or three runs into the safety of the end zone - and that's on an exceptionally good day - and the occasional scoot out of bounds, every play ends with the ballcarrier on the ground, usually with a couple of guys from the other team on top of him. Josh Woods understands that. The Triton senior has been a running back his entire football career. But this season, Woods is trying to get back up from a different kind of knockdown.

CONNOR DALY can describe what happened almost as if he's intently watching the game tape. That's often the way it is, of course, when a moment you can vividly remember is one you'd like to completely forget. It's last Sept. 18. Daly, then a junior starter at middle linebacker, and La Salle High are playing football against West Catholic. West opts for a rushing play that features a pitchout. Daly makes the correct diagnosis. Rushes forward with the hope of notching the tackle.

Back in training camp, the Eagles were hoping to get big production from a versatile group of tight ends. Jason Dunn had game-breaking potential, Chad Lewis was the guy with great hands, and Jimmie Johnson was the solid veteran. On the first day of December, Chris Fontenot was the team's senior active tight end, having joined the Eagles way back on Oct. 29. Fontenot, 24, will make his first NFL start tomorrow night against the St. Louis Rams. "I've always heard that things can happen really fast in the NFL," Fontenot said.

Steve Everitt is so close he can taste it. Really, though, he'll probably get only a sniff. The Eagles' starting center has not played this season. He broke a bone in his right foot while running just before training camp started. Bubba Miller has played in Everitt's place, but Everitt wants to play Sunday in Arizona. "I think I'll be ready to go," Everitt said. "I don't think it's realistic for me to go out and play four quarters. Maybe a half. "It's been a long time coming," he added.
