DE Dave Tollefson will be transitioning to Defensive Tackle now that DT Jimmy Kennedy has been suspended by the NFL for PED’s.
Via the NY Giants
Kennedy, a nine-year veteran, has played as a backup in all five games and has four tackles (two solo).
In his absence, Dave Tollefson, a natural end who has played numerous snaps at tackle this season, will likely see more time inside.
“I’m not scared, I’m going to bust my (butt),” Tollefson said. “We’re going to need something. It’s not like we’re going to just tell the Bills, ‘Can you just cut out like 10-12 reps, because we don’t have enough (linemen)?’ Someone’s going to have to do it.”
Tollefson will volunteer for anything, so it might as well be him. He said he weighs about 260 pounds. Buffalo’s three interior offensive linemen – guards Andy Levitre and Kraig Urbik and center Eric Wood – are 303, 329 and 311, respectively.
In short, Tolly’s got his work cut out for him Sunday.
