Morgan Moses - Washington Redskins - Offensive Tackle: Moses has started every game for Washington, but has been dealing with a knee injury that has caused him to miss snaps occasionally. The former UVA star lineman is questionable for the Thanksgiving Day game vs Dallas.

Brent Urban - Baltimore Ravens - Defensive End: Urban has started every game for Baltimore and has recorded 15 tackles so far this season.

Anthony Harris - Minnesota Vikings - Safety: “Ant” Harris has started the last three games for Minnesota and has performed spectacularly. He grabbed two interceptions on Sunday Night Football and has nine tackles in the past two games.

Dontrelle Inman - Indianapolis Colts- Wide Retriever: The former star UVA receiver recently signed with the Colts and started three of the past four games. Inman grabbed a touchdown last week to go along with 34 yards.

Oday Aboushi - Arizona Cardinals - Offensive Tackle: The 5-year veteran recently signed with the Cardinals and started at right guard in Arizona’s last game.

Micah Kiser - Los Angeles Rams - Linebacker: Kiser has only been used on special teams for the 9-1 Rams.

Matt Schaub - Atlanta Falcons - Quarterback: Schaub has seen a little bit of action this year backing up Matt Ryan, but has not played since early October.

Green Bean Casserole (Injured):

Eli Harold - Detroit Lions - Linebacker: Harold started off the season strong for the Lions, recording three sacks in the first three games. However, the former UVA linebacker has been dealing with a shoulder injury and has not played in a couple weeks.
