LB Russell Allen – Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Buffalo Bills
The Jaguars fell to the Bills on Sunday, 34-18. In what has been a tough season for Jacksonville, Allen has been a consistent bright spot. He had nine total tackles in the game, and is ranked fifth in the NFL with 81 solo tackles this season.
LB Antwan Applewhite – Carolina Panthers vs. Kansas City Chiefs
The Panthers lost to the Chiefs on Sunday, 27-21. Applewhite was inactive for the sixth straight week after suffering a hamstring injury in Week 7.
LS Aaron Brewer – Denver Broncos vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Arguably the hottest team in the league, the Broncos won their seventh straight game on Sunday as they beat the Buccaneers, 31-23. Brewer continued to snap well for the Broncos, but did not record any tackles in punt coverage.
WR Vincent Brown – San Diego Chargers vs. Cincinnati Bengals
The Chargers were defeated by the Bengals on Sunday, 20-13. This loss dampened the chances of Brown playing this season, as it has been reported that his return will likely depend on the team’s playoff chances. Brown is not expected to return unless he is needed for a playoff push, which is unlikely for the struggling Chargers.
LB Miles Burris – Oakland Raiders vs. Cleveland Browns
In a tight battle, the Raiders lost to the Browns on Sunday, 20-17. Burris recorded eight total tackles in the loss.
OT/OG Brandyn Dombrowski – San Diego Chargers vs. Cincinnati Bengals
Battling a foot injury all season, Dombrowski was put on injured reserve last week. The move officially declared him out for the remainder of the season.
LB Heath Farwell – Seattle Seahawks vs. Chicago Bears
The Seahawks defeated the Bears on Sunday, 23-17. Farwell continued to play an important special teams role for Seattle, but did not record any tackles in the game.
RB Ronnie Hillman – Denver Broncos vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
In the Broncos victory over the Buccaneers, Hillman had five carries for 29 yards. Even with Willis McGahee hurt, Hillman remains the second running back option behind Knowshon Moreno, who carried the ball 20 times for 69 yards.
QB Ryan Lindley – Arizona Cardinals vs. New York Jets
With a relatively young and inexperienced offensive line, Lindley had a tough time getting into a rhythm in his second career start and the Cardinals lost to the Jets, 7-6. He finished 10-31 for 72 yards and threw one interception.
OG Lance Louis – Chicago Bears vs. Seattle Seahawks
After suffering a season-ending knee injury last week, Louis was forced to watch on Sunday as the Bears fell to the Seahawks. He will miss the remainder of the season with a torn ACL in his left knee.
LB Kirk Morrison – Buffalo Bills vs. Jacksonville Jaguars
Morrison was inactive once again in the Bills’ victory over the Jaguars. He was released by the Bills on Monday, and it is uncertain if any other team will make a push to sign him for the remainder of the season.
WR Kassim Osgood – Detroit Lions vs. Indianapolis Colts
The Lions were the latest team to fall to arguably the biggest surprise of the season, the Colts. In the 35-33 loss, Osgood was active on special teams and recorded one tackle.
OT Will Robinson – New Orleans Saints vs. Atlanta Falcons
The Saints fell to the Falcons on Thursday, 23-13. With tackle Zach Strief back in the lineup, Robinson did not start, but is still excited to be a part of the team. Here is a recent article about Robinson making his return to the NFL after working as a bouncer.
WR Chaz Schilens – New York Jets vs. Arizona Cardinals
Schilens’ got the upper hand against his former teammate Ryan Lindley on Sunday, as the Jets knocked off the Cardinals. Schilens finished with two catches for 5 yards.
