LB Russell Allen – Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Chicago Bears
The Jaguars suffered a tough loss and fell to the Bears, 41-3. Allen had four total tackles, three of which were solo. He is currently tied for seventh in the league with 47 total tackles this season.

LB Antwan Applewhite – Carolina Panthers vs. Seattle Seahawks
After missing two weeks due to a knee injury, Applewhite was solid in his return. He recorded four total tackles, including a sack for a loss of three yards. It wasn’t enough, however, as the Panthers lost to the Seahawks, 16-12.

LS Aaron Brewer – Denver Broncos vs. New England Patriots
In the battle of elite quarterbacks, Tom Brady came out on top and the Patriots knocked off the Broncos, 31-21. Brewer continued to snap well for the Broncos, as they were 3-for-3 on PATs and punted the ball three times for an average of 45.7 yards per punt.

WR Vincent Brown – San Diego Chargers vs. New Orleans Saints
The Chargers lost to the Saints, 31-24, and Brown remains out recovering from a broken ankle suffered in the preseason. In a recent update on Rotoworld, it was reported that Norv Turner said Brown was “right on schedule” in his rehabilitation. He is eligible to return to practice in Week 7.

OT/OG Brandyn Dombrowski – San Diego Chargers vs. New Orleans Saints
Like Brown, Dombrowski remains on the injured-reserve list with a foot injury. According to an article published by The North County Times, he is expected to return in Week 8.

LB Heath Farwell – Seattle Seahawks vs. Carolina Panthers
Although Farwell didn’t match the production of his former teammate, Applewhite, it was Farwell whose team got the win. Farwell had one tackle in the game, giving him five total tackles this season.

RB Ronnie Hillman – Denver Broncos vs. New England Patriots
Hillman saw a limited number of touches in the loss to the Patriots. He had three carries for 9 yards and one catch for 4 yards. He has 84 yards from scrimmage this season.

QB Ryan Lindley – Arizona Cardinals vs. St. Louis Rams
The Cardinals lost their first game of the season, as they fell to the Rams in the Thursday night game, 17-3. John Skelton was inactive, and Lindley remains as the backup quarterback behind Kevin Kolb.

OG Lance Louis – Chicago Bears vs. Jacksonville Jaguars
Louis and his fellow offensive lineman were dominant in the Bears’ blowout victory over the Jaguars. They allowed just one sack on quarterback Jay Cutler, and helped their team rush for 214 yards.

LB Kirk Morrison – Buffalo Bills vs. San Francisco 49ers
Morrison was inactive once again, and the Bills were beaten by the 49ers, 45-3. Morrison has yet to record any stats this season, and it is uncertain when he will return to action.

WR Kassim Osgood – Detroit Lions, BYE

WR Chaz Schilens – New York Jets vs. Houston Texans
In the Monday night game, Schilens and the Jets came up short and were defeated by the Texans, 23-17. He had four catches for 29 yards, and nearly came up with a surprise onside kick.
