has a good chance to play Sept. 29 in Chicago.
--WR Robert Ferguson impressed the coaches with his toughness by starting at split end and
playing into the second half before he aggravated the knee-ankle injury he
suffered a week ago. "'Fergy' may be one of the toughest players on this team,"
coach Mike Sherman said.
