PRO FOOTBALL DAILY REPORT : AFC : Hostetler Expected to Face the Colts

Associated Press

Raider quarterback Jeff Hostetler, who injured his larynx during Monday night's loss to Denver, will probably play this weekend against Indianapolis, Coach Mike White said.

Dave Wyman of the Denver Broncos was fined $4,000 by the NFL for hitting Hostetler in the throat. He claimed it was merely a bad block and that he had not intended to hurt the Raider quarterback.

Meanwhile, MRI tests revealed no serious injuries to Raider cornerbacks Albert Lewis and James Trapp and offensive tackle Greg Skrepenak.


San Diego Charger quarterback Stan Humphries went through a full practice and is expected to start Sunday's game at Seattle. Humphries sat out the Chargers' 23-9 loss to Dallas on Sunday because of a bruised right shoulder.

Linebacker Junior Seau missed practice to be with his wife, Gina, who delivered the couple's second child, Jake Ryan, who will be called J.R. Seau.

The Chargers signed defensive tackle Sebastian Barrie, who formerly was with the Arizona Cardinals, to take the spot of rookie Don Sasa. Sasa tore a ligament in his right knee on Sunday and will miss the rest of the season.

The team released veteran tight end Ron Middleton for the second time this season in order to clear up room under the salary cap and signed rookie safety David Hendrix from the practice squad.
