SUPER BOWL XXII : WASHINGTON vs. DENVER BRONCOS : Three Replacements Who May Play

The replacement players expected to dress Sunday as members of the Super Bowl teams' 45-man squads:

REDSKINS: Wide Receiver Anthony Allen--Their most valuable replacement. After a United States Football League career, he blew out a knee with the Falcons in '86, was waived and signed by Washington after the strike. In three strikeball games, he caught 13 passes for 337 yards, including 255 against a veteran-stocked Cardinal squad, as the non-union Redskins went 3-0. He was subsequently waived, but re-signed when Art Monk was hurt. If Monk returns, Allen may not dress Sunday.

Cornerback Dennis Woodberry--He survived the veterans' return and became the nickel back in passing situations, intercepting a pass by Jim McMahon in the playoff victory over the Bears.

BRONCOS: Cornerback K.C. Clark--Another Bronco who made a big play in the victory over the Raiders. He intercepted a short sideline pass Vince Evans threw on the first play from scrimmage. He was the team's punt returner in the last six games of the season.

Players still on the 50-man rosters who aren't expected to dress are tight end Joe Caravello, Washington; tight end Mitch Andrews, offensive lineman Steve Bryan, quarterback Ken Karcher, and offensive tackle tackle Keith Kartz of the Broncos.
