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.

LS Aaron Brewer – Denver Broncos vs. Carolina Panthers
The Broncos handled the Panthers on Sunday, winning their fourth straight game. Brewer did not record any tackles, as he did in his previous two games, but he continued to snap well on punts and field goals.

WR Vincent Brown – San Diego Chargers vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
To add another blunder to their roller coaster of a season, the Chargers fell to the Buccaneers, 34-24. Brown remains out with an ankle injury suffered in the preseason, and is expected to return some time in December.

The Raiders had a tough time stopping the Ravens, and lost 55-20. Burris, who continues to start at weakside linebacker for the Raiders, recorded five total tackles in the game.

OT/OG Brandyn Dombrowski – San Diego Chargers vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Dombrowski returned to practice last week, but it is uncertain if he will see any game action this season. According to a post on ESPN, the Chargers have three weeks to either activate him or place him on injured reserve.

LB Heath Farwell – Seattle Seahawks vs. New York Jets
Behind a strong rushing performance by Marshawn Lynch, the Seahawks defeated the Jets, 28-7. Farwell recorded another tackle on special teams in the game, giving him a total of 11 this season.

RB Ronnie Hillman – Denver Broncos vs. Carolina Panthers
Although he had just seven yards from scrimmage in the game, Hillman scored his first NFL touchdown on Sunday in the Broncos’ big win over the Panthers. He scored on a 5-yard run late in the fourth quarter.

QB Ryan Lindley – Arizona Cardinals, BYE

OG Lance Louis – Chicago Bears vs. Houston Texans
The Bears had their six-game winning snapped on Sunday after they lost to the Texans, 13-6. Louis and his fellow offensive lineman performed well in pass protection, not giving up any sacks in the game. It wasn’t enough for the Bears, however, and their record fell to 8-2.

LB Kirk Morrison – Buffalo Bills vs. New England Patriots
The Bills played the Patriots close all game, but eventually lost, 37-31. Morrison remained inactive for the game, and has yet to see any action this season.

WR Kassim Osgood – Detroit Lions vs. Minnesota Vikings
The Lions had no answer for Adrian Peterson and his 171 yards rushing on Sunday, as they lost to the Vikings, 34-24. Osgood saw action on special teams, but did not record any tackles in the game.

WR Chaz Schilens – New York Jets vs. Seattle Seahawks
Schilens did not have any catches in the Jets’ loss to the Seahawks. Although he was held without a catch in the game, he has 16 receptions for 150 yards and one touchdown this season.

LB Russell Allen – Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Detroit Lions
The Jaguars’ struggles continued as they fell to the Lions, 31-14. Allen recorded six tackles in the loss, all solo stops, and he is currently tied for seventh in the league with 50 solo tackles this season. Allen also reached a career milestone on Sunday, as he recorded his 200th total tackle.

LB Antwan Applewhite – Carolina Panthers vs. Washington Redskins
Applewhite was inactive in Week 9 after suffering a leg injury in Week 7. In a battle of young, mobile quarterbacks, the Panthers beat the Redskins, 21-13, and Cam Newton got the upper hand on Robert Griffin III. Applewhite’s status for Week 10 is uncertain.

LS Aaron Brewer – Denver Broncos vs. Cincinnati Bengals
The Broncos continued their solid play as they defeated the Bengals, 31-23, and secured their third straight victory. Brewer snapped well on punts and field goals, and recorded his second tackle of the season while covering a punt. He has now recorded one tackle in each of the last two games.

WR Vincent Brown – San Diego Chargers vs. Kansas City Chiefs
The Chargers dominated the Chiefs on Thursday, 31-13. Brown remains out with an ankle injury suffered in the preseason, and his recovery has taken longer than expected. According to an article by CBS Sports, Brown is likely out until December.

LB Miles Burris – Oakland Raiders vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Burris and the Raiders fell to the Buccaneers on Sunday, 42-32. Burris had six total tackles in the loss, giving him 38 so far this season.

OT/OG Brandyn Dombrowski – San Diego Chargers vs. Kansas City Chiefs
Dombrowski remains out with a foot injury, and his return this season is unlikely. It was recently reported by CBS Sports that he is recovering from a cyst on his foot, and his chances of playing this season are slim.

LB Heath Farwell – Seattle Seahawks vs. Minnesota Vikings
Behind emerging rookie quarterback Russell Wilson, the Seahawks came away with the win over the Vikings, 30-20. Farwell recorded one tackle on special teams, bringing his season total to 10.

RB Ronnie Hillman – Denver Broncos vs. Cincinnati Bengals
Although Hillman was unable to repeat his breakout performance in Week 8, the Broncos still handled the Bengals. He saw limited touches in the game, as he had one carry for 4 yards and one reception for 5 yards.

QB Ryan Lindley – Arizona Cardinals vs. Green Bay Packers
The Cardinals lost to the Packers on Sunday, 31-17. Lindley remains the backup quarterback behind John Skelton, and still has to take any snaps this season.

OG Lance Louis – Chicago Bears vs. Tennessee Titans
The Bears are quickly making a name for themselves throughout the league after an overwhelming victory over the Titans, 51-20. Louis continued to block well for the Bears, and their record improved to 7-1, tied for second-best in the NFL.

LB Kirk Morrison – Buffalo Bills vs. Houston Texans
The Bills’ defense couldn’t stop Arian Foster and Andre Johnson on Sunday, and fell to the Texans, 21-9. Morrison was inactive for the game, and has yet to see any action this season for unknown reasons.

WR Kassim Osgood – Detroit Lions vs. Jacksonville Jaguars
Osgood was unable to record any tackles on special teams, but the Lions were able to win their second straight game and improve their record to 4-4.
