BRONCOS: Swedish kicker Ola Kimrin, who has little chance of sticking with the team with Jason Elam in front of him, made a 65-yard field goal Thursday night against visiting Seattle. The ball sailed through the uprights with a few yards to spare as time expired in the first half. Kimrin was mobbed by teammates as he ran toward the sideline, and Denver tight end Shannon Sharpe grabbed the ball and gave it to him as they left the field. Elam hit a 63-yard field goal in 1998 to tie Tom Dempsey for the longest field goal in league history. Preseason games do not count in the league record book.

COLTS: Defensive tackle Ellis Johnson, whose tenure as a draft choice had been the longest on the active roster, was released after his request to be cut or traded because he wasn't satisfied with his role. Because of his good relationship with team management, Johnson was told he could return if he doesn't find a job. Johnson, 28, started 84 of 104 games since Indianapolis made him the 15th selection in the '95 draft. He had 33 sacks.

DOLPHINS: Quarterback Sage Rosenfels has nothing bad to say about Steve Spurrier. Rosenfels was traded by Washington to Miami last week after failing to move up the depth chart. "Coach Spurrier gave me his word he was going to give me a fair shot, and he kept his word," Rosenfels said.
