"His slow recovery from knee surgery limited Bruce to one appearance in 1974 (at Green Bay). He held down the starting center position for most of the 1973 season until a knee injury in practice before the Cincinnati game sidelined him for the remainder of the year. He underwent knee surgery. Bruce [also] missed all but three games of the 1972 season with a knee injury.
He's a solid offensive performer on running and passing plays. He was a third round draft choice in 1971 and first won a regular job as a rookie.
Jarvis was an honorable All-America as a center for Coach Jim Owens' Huskies, and a second-team All-Coast selection. He was voted Washington's Offensive Lineman of the Year and was elected to play in the annual Hula Bowl game. Bruce was a college teammate of Bills linebacker Bo Cornell.
Bruce earned his B.A. degree in finance and economics during the off-season. He has an interest in a Buffalo area restaurant- 'The Outside Inn.'"
