Buckeyes in the NFL – Week 7

Baltimore Ravens
John Simon (LB) (2009-12)– Didn’t record any statistics in the Ravens week 7 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. It remains to be seen how much impact Simon will have this season for Baltimore.

Cincinnati Bengals
Mike Nugent (K) (2001-04)– Converted on 2-of-3 field goal tries, including a 54 yard game winner as time expired in Cincinnati’s 27-24 victory over the Detroit Lions. Nugent was also 3-3 on PAT attempts for the Bengals.

Dane Sanzenbacher (WR) (2007-10)– Recorded 1 reception for 7 yards in the Bengals week 7 victory over the Lions.

Houston Texans
Devier Posey (WR) (2008-11)– Recorded 1 reception for 42 yards in the Texans 17-16 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in week 7. The Texans continue to free fall in the standings.

Indianapolis Colts
Daniel “Boom” Herron (RB) (2008-09, 2011)– Herron was active for the Colts on Sunday night as Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos returned to Indianapolis. Herron is an insurance policy at running back behind Richardson and Brown. He will also get an opportunity to contribute on special teams.

Jacksonville Jaguars
Mike Brewster (C) (2008-11)– Continues to be a back-up across multiple positions on the offensive line. Brewster has yet to start a game for Jacksonville this season but it wouldn’t be a bad idea for the Jaguars to start playing some of their younger players. It continues to shock me that Brewster has not seen more playing yet this season.

Denver Broncos
Justin Boren (G) (2009-10)– Didn’t record any statistics or playing time for the Broncos in week 7. Boren is currently on the injured reserve. If he gets healthy, it will be difficult for him to see any playing time unless the offensive line becomes decimated with injuries over the course of the season.

Miami Dolphins
Brian Hartline (WR) (2006-08)– Recorded 6 receptions for 69 yards in the Dolphins week 7 loss to the Buffalo Bills. Hartline was targeted 11 times and it is clear he remains the top receiving option in Miami.

New England Patriots
Nate Ebner (DB) (2008-11)– Didn’t record any statistics for the Patriots in their week 7 loss to the New York Jets. Ebner was again active but didn’t have an impact.

New York Jets
Santonio Holmes (WR) (2003-05)– Holmes remained inactive again in the Jets week 7 victory over the Patriots. Holmes remains week to week but my guess is he’ll remain out for at least a few more weeks.

Nick Mangold (C) (2002-05)– Started at Center for the Jets in week 7 against the New England Patriots. Mangold helped the Jets gain 383 total yards of offense.

Oakland Raiders
Terrelle Pryor (QB) (2008-10)– The Raiders were among the few teams who were on a bye in week 7. Pryor and the Raiders will return to action next week.

Chimdi Chekwa (CB) (2007-10)– The Raiders were among the few teams who were on a bye in week 7. Chekwa and the Raiders will return to action next week.

Pittsburgh Steelers
Cameron Heyward (DE) (2007-10)– Recorded 1 solo tackle and returned a short kick-off 11 yards in the Steelers week 7 victory over the Baltimore Ravens.

Mike Adams (OT) (2008-11)– Adams has lost his starting role with the Pittsburgh Steelers because of his poor play. The Steelers are trying to shake things up and make sure the guys playing are fully committed. We’ll see if Adams gains his starting position back or not.


Dallas Cowboys
Will Allen (SS) (2000-03)– Allen was cut by the Cowboys last week.

Carolina Panthers
Ted Ginn Jr. (WR) (2004-2006)– Recorded 2 receptions for 34 yards in the Panthers week 7 victory over the St. Louis Rams. Ginn continues to consistently put up statistics for the Panthers.

Ben Hartsock (TE) (1999-03)– Didn’t record any statistics in the Panthers week 7 victory over the St. Louis Rams. Hartsock remains the backup Tight End behind Greg Olson and is a special teams staple for the Panthers.

Detroit Lions
Rob Sims (OL) (2002-05)– Started at LG for the Seahawks in there week 7 victory over the Arizona Cardinals. Sims helped lead Seattle to 135 yards rushing with 4.2 yards per rush.

Green Bay Packers
A.J. Hawk (LB) (2002-05)– Recorded 12 total tackles in the Packers 31-13 victory over the Cleveland Browns in week 7. Hawk led the Packers in tackling and he continues to be a monster in the middle.

Ryan Pickett (DT) (1998-00)– Started in the middle for the Packers as usual but didn’t record any statistics. He played in just over a third of the overall defensive snaps for the Packers.

New Orleans Saints
Malcolm Jenkins (CB) (2005-08)– The Saints didn’t play in week 7. Jenkins will be back in action next week against the Buffalo Bills.

Will Smith (DE) (2000-03)– Placed on injured reserve (IR) for the remainder of the year. Smith injured his ACL back in August.

New York Giants
Jim Cordle (C) (2007-09)– Didn’t start for the Giants in their Monday night game against Minnesota. Cordle did play in nearly 80 percent of the offensive snaps for the Giants. The rushing offense struggled and only managed 64 yards on the ground.

Johnathan Hankins (DT) (2010-12)– Hankins was inactive in week 7 for the New York Giants.

Philadelphia Eagles
Kurt Coleman (DB) (2006-09)– Recorded 1 total tackle for the Eagles in their week 7 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. Coleman didn’t start and only played in a handful of plays defensively. He played in the majority of special teams snaps.

Washington Redskins
Doug Worthington (DE) (2007-09)– Has been placed on the IR (bicep) for the remainder of the year.

St. Louis Rams
James Laurinaitis (LB) (2005-09)– Recorded 11 total tackles and played in every defensive snap for the St. Louis Rams in week 7. Laurinaitis also recorded a 13-yard sack. He continues to lead the St. Louis defense in every way.

Jake McQuaide (LS) (2008-10)– Starting long snapper for the Rams in Week 7.

San Francisco 49ers
Donte Whitner (DB) (2003-05)– Recorded 3 total tackles for the 49ers in their 31-17 victory over the Tennessee Titans in week 7. Whitner left the game in the 4th quarter because of a knee injury he sustained. The injury isn’t thought to be serious as Whitner could be seen jogging off the field at the end of the game.

Alex Boone (G) (2005-08)– Started at guard for San Francisco in Week 7 against Tennessee. The 49ers rushed for 153 yards and three touchdowns.
