Now 10 weeks in, let's take a look around all of the Hoos in the NFL.
The Major Contributors:
Branden Albert, Miami Dolphins – Branden dislocated his wrist during the Dolphins win over the Chargers. He had it popped back into place and covered with a cast and then returned to the game. The Dolphins rushed for 4.2 yards per carry against one of the better run defenses in the NFL.
Ahmad Brooks, San Francisco 49ers – The 49ers lost again, and gave up 443 yards to the Cardinals. Ahmad Brooks had five tackles, including one for loss.
Eli Harold, San Francisco 49ers – Harold has been playing better of late. He had just one tackle this week, but it was a sack and a forced fumble. He also had a QB hurry.
Dontrelle Inman, San Diego Chargers – Inman had five catches for 43 yards in the Chargers loss.
Cam Johnson, Cleveland Browns – Johnson had three tackles in the Browns loss. They are 0-10 on the season.
Chris Long, New England Patriots – Chris wasn’t in the starting lineup this week. He played 37 snaps, just over half of the game. He did not record any stats, though he was offsides on one play.
Rodney McLeod, Philadelphia Eagles – McLeod had just three tackles, but he helped the Eagles shut down the Rams offense and come away with a win.
Morgan Moses, Washington Redskins – Moses helped the Redskins rush for 4.6 yards per carry and help keep Kirk Cousins upright in the Redskins win over the Vikings. However, he briefly left the game with a left ankle injury. He returned on the same drive after he was hurt, but he was seen in the boot after the game. He is considered day-to-day.
Austin Pasztor, Cleveland Browns – The Browns managed just 144 yards against the Ravens this week. They couldn’t run the ball and they couldn’t protect the QB. The OL was poor all day.
John Phillips, New Orleans Saints – Last week, Phillips played for the Broncos. Since then, he was released by the Broncos, and picked up by the Saints. So this week, he played for the Saints, but against the Broncos. It was all very confusing. In any event, Phillips played 14 snaps on offense, but did not record any stats.
Brent Urban, Baltimore Ravens – Urban played just five defensive plays (and three on special teams). He had one tackle.
Special Teams Standouts:
Anthony Harris, Minnesota Vikings – Harris had another special teams tackle this week.
LaRoy Reynolds, Atlanta Falcons – Reynolds played 20 snaps on defense, and totaled three tackles in the Falcons loss.
Put Me In, Coach!:
Oday Aboushi, Houston Texans – Aboushi was inactive this week.
Luke Bowanko, Jacksonville Jaguars –Luke is on the PUP list after undergoing hip labrum surgery.
Maurice Canady, Baltimore Ravens – Canady is on IR with a hamstring injury.
David Dean, Cincinnati Bengals – Dean remains on Cincinnati’s practice squad.
Cedric Peerman, Cincinnati Bengals – Peerman is on IR for the Bengals after breaking his arm during training camp.
Matt Schaub, Atlanta Falcons – Schaub did not play this week.
Canaan Severin, Pittsburgh Steelers – Severin is on IR for the Steelers with a shoulder injury suffered during preseason.
