WASHINGTON - Washington Redskins coach Steve Spurrier said Monday that Kevin Lockett will start at wide receiver against the Tennessee Titans and either Danny Wuerffel or rookie Patrick Ramsey will get the nod at quarterback.
"We'll announce a quarterback a little later in the week," Spurrier said.
Lockett, who's caught four passes for 39 yards and one touchdown, likely will replace Derrius Thompson, who has seven receptions for 75 yards and a touchdown. Spurrier said Rod Gardner "probably" will start on the other side.
  • JETS: In the midst of their worst slump in 40 seasons - yes, even worse than the Kotite years - the New York Jets benched quarterback Vinny Testaverde.
    Monday's move was meant as a harsh message from coach Herman Edwards, who said he will turn to Chad Pennington to spark the team's mistake-riddled offense.
  • TITANS: Tennessee likely will be without leading receiver Derrick Mason and starting cornerback Samari Rolle for at least 3-to-4 weeks because of injuries.
  • BEARS: Chicago linebacker Warrick Holdman will miss the rest of the season after having surgery Monday to repair torn cartilage in his right knee.
    Holdman, the Bears' second-leading tackler last season, was hurt during the first quarter of Sunday's overtime loss in Buffalo. He will need three months to recover, coach Dick Jauron said.
  • SAINTS: New Orleans first-round draft pick Donte Stallworth is expected to miss next week's game against Pittsburgh because of an injured left hamstring.
  • DOLPHINS: Miami kick returner Albert Johnson will likely miss the rest of the season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.
