Vincent Brown Aztecs For Life

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.

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.

LB Miles Burris – Oakland Raiders, BYE

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.
