Terrell Davis, the NFL's premier running back of the late 1990s, says he is so discouraged with the lack of progress on his injured knees that he is contemplating retirement. "I'm taking everything in stride, and whatever way the wind blows, I'm fine with it," said Davis, who has been plagued by injuries since 1998, when he became just the fourth player ever to rush for 2,000 yards in a season. Davis seemed ready to start this season as the Denver Broncos' No. 1 back. But his right knee began to swell during camp and recent tests found no reason for it. Lions.

Reggie White, the leader of the Green Bay Packers' defense and one of the leaders of the entire team, stood erect and took his medicine. Denver Broncos running back Terrell Davis had made a mockery of the Packers' defense that played so well in the postseason. White's expression remained placid. He praised Davis for being named the MVP of Super Bowl XXXII. He gave the young back his due for rushing for 157 yards and a game-record three touchdowns on 30 carries, despite sitting out the whole second quarter with a migraine.

The Denver Broncos have been savaged in Seattle and badly beaten by Kansas City at home, and hardly look like a consensus choice for Super Bowl XXX. Yet one suspects it has been the happiest of football seasons for the unlikeliest starter on the team's roster. That would be Terrell Davis, the Broncos' rookie tailback, who has embarrassed the scouting departments of 29 NFL franchises by consistently performing at a level that belies their low assessment of his ability. In nine games, Davis has 622 yards rushing, 299 yards in pass receptions, six touchdowns, an affinity for the crushing block, and an enviable talent for taking tacklers for a 2-yard ride or so, after the initial hit. If he isn't the fastest back in the West, no one's complaining.

It wasn't personal, just business. Terrell Davis wasn't determined to run the football down the Pittsburgh Steelers' throats to answer their boast that he couldn't. The NFL's second-leading rusher knew that he if he didn't, it was more than likely that the Steelers, and not he and the Denver Broncos, would be heading to Super Bowl XXXII. "We knew we had to run the football," said Davis, who rushed for 139 yards and scored a touchdown as Denver prevailed yesterday, 24-21, in the AFC Championship Game.

Kateree Davis used to stop and listen, stop and look, whenever her son's fame crept up on her. She would stay tuned to channels when she saw her son's image on television, slow her grocery cart when she saw someone wearing his No. 30 Denver Broncos jersey in a supermarket, or turn up the volume on her minivan's radio when the announcer mentioned his name. "It was Terrell Davis, Terrell Davis - everywhere, all the time," the proud mother said, laughing. "And I was always stopping what I was doing because it was happening so often.

Already honored as the NFL's best offensive player and the only unanimous all-pro selection, Denver running back Terrell Davis was selected yesterday as the league's most valuable player by the Associated Press. One of the game's biggest stars at the age of 26, Davis became the fourth player to rush for 2,000 yards in a season, gaining 2,008. He also ran for 21 touchdowns and was instrumental in the Super Bowl champions' posting a 14-2 record. The Broncos are now as much Davis' team as they are John Elway's.

Terrell Davis breezed untouched into the Green Bay end zone from 1 yard out, putting Denver ahead by a touchdown with less than two minutes left in the Super Bowl, apparently because the Packers wanted him to. "I wanted the ball back," Packers coach Mike Holmgren said yesterday. Instead of attempting a time-consuming goal-line stand, the Packers let Davis score on second and goal, and then had 1 minute, 45 seconds and two time-outs to come back. Holmgren said he'd mistakenly thought it was first and goal when Davis scored, instead of second and goal.

After two seasons of injuries, Denver Broncos running back Terrell Davis was ready to sever ties with his painful past. Not so fast. Davis, who has missed 24 games since his 1998 MVP season, was held out of Denver's afternoon practice yesterday after aggravating a month-old hamstring injury. He hopes to return today, but acknowledged he will be less than 100 percent. "Believe me, I'm trying to get on this field as much as I can," he said. "I'm close. I feel great except for this right now. I'm too close to get frustrated.

Davis has been rehabilitating in Phoenix in an attempt to return to the NFL, but recently told Broncos coach Mike Shanahan he didn't think his battered knees would allow him to pass a physical before the start of training camp today.

Cleveland linebacker Jamir Miller will miss the entire season after tearing his right Achilles' tendon during the Browns' 27-15 victory over the Minnesota Vikings on Saturday. "He was not hit," Browns coach Butch Davis said yesterday. "Nobody rolled up on the back of his leg. It just snapped and gave way. It's one of those really unfortunate things. " Davis said Miller will have surgery today, and will need 5 to 6 months to make a total recovery. Losing Miller in their exhibition opener is the latest blow for the Browns, who had a rash of serious injuries last season in Davis' first year as coach.

JERSEY CITY, N.J. - Most professional athletes don't have to waste a lot of time worrying about when they're going to retire. That decision usually is made for them. "Joe Bob, we really appreciate everything you've done for this organization the last 10 years. But we've decided to go in another direction. Here's the phone numbers for ESPN, Fox Sports 1 and NFL Network. Good luck. " The lucky few who do have the ability to write their own career ending usually are encouraged by fans and literati to retire sooner rather than later because, well, watching the skills of a great athlete erode is like watching a dog get old. Which brings us to Peyton Manning.

The taller they are, the better Terrell Davis seems to like it. Davis, a 6-foot-4 forward for Kennett High's basketball team, battled players considerably taller than him in the squad's last two PIAA Class AAA state playoff games. First, there was Harriton's Joel Green, a 6-9 center. Then, in Tuesday's semifinal against Lancaster Mennonite, there was Ryan King, a 6-8 center. Each time, boosted by the strong inside play of Davis, the Blue Demons prevailed and moved closer to the school's first state championship.

The Denver franchise could be named the Thoroughbreds because its herd of gallopers seems more elite than Broncos. With Terrell Davis and Olandis Gary back from serious injuries, and Mike Anderson fresh off a rookie year in which he ran for nearly 1,500 yards, there is not a better stable of backs in the NFL. Having made some moves to tighten their defense and having found stability at quarterback in the post-Elway era with Brian Griese, the...
