The Buffalo Bills waived backup quarterback Billy Joe Hobert on Wednesday, two days after he admitted he was unprepared for an injury to starter Todd Collins. Hobert told the Associated Press earlier this week he glanced over the passing plays and was not ready last week when Collins sustained a strained shoulder in a 33-6 loss to the New England Patriots.

After two Billy Joes, New Orleans Coach Mike Ditka may try a Danny against the Buccaneers. First-string quarterback Billy Joe Hobert is injured again and Ditka has doubts about second-stringer Billy Joe Tolliver. That means the Saints may resort to third-string quarterback Danny Wuerffel, famous for working magic down the road at Florida. The 49ers spent the week practicing plays from the shotgun, a formation they haven't used for 20 years.

The Pacific 10 Conference unanimously recommended Sunday to let stand the results of Washington games in which junior quarterback Billy Joe Hobert played. The Pac-10 Council, meeting in San Francisco, determined that $50,000 in loans Hobert received shouldn't alter the Huskies' record. However, it also said in a statement that "substantial questions remain concerning important aspects of this case."

Billy Joe Hobert, the Washington quarterback who lost his college eligibility for receiving improper loans, will make himself available for the NFL draft instead of appealing for reinstatement with the Huskies. Hobert, a junior, was ruled ineligible on Nov. 10 after it was learned he received $50,000 in loans from an Idaho nuclear scientist. "I think it would have been in my best interest to get reinstated, but I don't think it was possible," Hobert said Tuesday.
