SHARE RAIDERS BENCH SCHROEDER

Quarterback Jay Schroeder of the Los Angeles Raiders was benched Wednesday by Coach Art Shell, just four days before he was to face his former team for the first time.

Schroeder, a disappointment since being acquired from Washington last season, will be replaced by Steve Beuerlein for Sunday's game against the Redskins at the Coliseum.Schroeder has completed only 48.6 percent of his passes for 1,145 yards, six touchdowns and eight interceptions, and his 66.5 rating is second-lowest in the AFC. Beuerlein has connected on 21 of his 35 attempts (60 percent) for 296 yards, three TDs and two interceptions.
