Sleepless in Buffalo: Collins starting at QB

September 22, 1996|By KNIGHT-RIDDER NEWS SERVICE

Todd Collins walked around Rich Stadium feeling the pre-game jitters. Unfortunately for the Buffalo Bills quarterback, it was two days before the game.

"I was pretty nervous [Friday] night," said Collins, who is replacing the injured Jim Kelly today against the Dallas Cowboys. "I didn't sleep to well, but as the week goes on, I'm getting more excited."

The Bills have struggled through their first three games while Kelly got off to the worst start of his career. The 36-year-old quarterback is expected to be out for at least two weeks TTC because of a strained hamstring.

In Collins' only career start, against Houston last year, he completed just six of 15 passes for 30 yards and was sacked five times.
