Denver-AP -- Denver Broncos running back Terrell Davis couldn't pick a better time to participate in a full practice. Davis worked out yesterday, less than a week after running back Olandis (oh-LAN'-dihs) Gary broke his left leg in the Broncos' Thanksgiving Day win over Dallas.

Davis is coming off his second knee surgery of the season and says he's ready to reclaim the starting job. Broncos coach Mike Shanahan says Davis will start unless he has a setback in practice this week.

(Undated-AP) -- Quarterbacks Brett Favre (fahrv) and Daunte Culpepper are banged up but ready to play this weekend. Favre was listed on Green Bay's injury report yesterday with a bad back. It didn't stop him from tossing long bombs while participating in a full practice.

Favre thinks he hurt his back against Atlanta November 18th.

Culpepper is still bothered by a knee sprain suffered in Minnesota's seven-point loss to Chicago last Sunday. He says he'll take it easy in practice this week but expects to play Sunday versus Pittsburgh.

(San Diego-AP) -- Steve Christie is the latest ex-Bill to be signed by San Diego. The 34-year-old kicker received a contract yesterday and will handle field goals and points-after while struggling kicker Wade Richey will take kickoffs. Christie worked out yesterday in front of general manager John Butler, who was Buffalo's G-M last season.

(Foxboro, Massachusetts-AP) -- The New England Patriots are listing wide receiver Terry Glenn as probable for Sunday's clash with the New York Jets. Glenn has been sidelined the last seven weeks with a sore hamstring and has appeared in just one contest since serving a four-game suspension for violating the N-F-L's substance abuse policy.

(San Francisco-AP) -- Candlestick Park could become Candlestick Park again. Three-Com Corporation has told the San Francisco 49ers that it will remove its name from the team's home field and not renew a multimillion-dollar naming contract.

Candlestick Park was renamed Three-Com Park in 1995.

(Columbus, Ohio-AP) -- Ohio State quarterback Steve Bellisari will spend three days in jail after the Buckeyes play in the Outback Bowl New Year's Day. Bellisari was sentenced after pleading no contest yesterday to drunken driving.

(Undated-AP) -- Three more college football teams have decided their bowl destinations. Georgia Tech will face Stanford in the inaugural Seattle Bowl, Boston College will play an S-E-C team in the Music City Bowl and Colorado State will battle North Texas in the New Orleans Bowl.
