The Browns go to Tennessee this week. But BBC had a great article about him on

De'Vondre Campbell-LB Atlanta Falcons

Campbell missed his fourth consecutive game due to his ankle injury. That sucks

Hopefully another week of rest gets Campbell back on the field. Maybe?

Ra'Shede Hageman--DE Atlanta Falcons

Hageman recorded one tackle in the Falcons win over Denver

Week 6 vs Seattle Seahawks

Hageman and the Falcons head to Seattle.

Maxx Williams-TE Baltimore Ravens

Week 5 vs Washington

Maxx was put in Injured Reserve this week by the Ravens, effectively ending his season. He could come back in Week 13 if the Ravens choose not to return anyone else this season.

Damien Wilson--LB Dallas Cowboys

Week 5 vs Cincinnati Bengals

Wilson did not record any stats in Dallas’s win over the Bengals

Week 6 vs Green Bay Packers

The Cowboys head to Green Bay in what could be a large game coming playoff time.

Marqueis Gray--TE Miami Dolphins

Week 5 vs Tennessee Titans

Gray did not record any stats in the Dolphins loss to Tennessee.

Week 6 vs Pittsburgh Steelers

The Dolphins get the Steelers

Eric Decker--WR New York Jets

Week 5 vs Pittsburgh Steelers

Decker missed the game against the Steelers, and then was put in Injured Reserve by the Jets on Wednesday. He could return in Week 13, but his season is probably over.

Tramaine Brock-CB San Francisco 49ers

Week 5 vs Arizona Cardinals

Brock recorded three tackles and three pass breakups in the Cardinals win over San Fran.

Week 6 vs Buffalo Bills

The 49ers head east to Buffalo this week.

Marcus Sherels--CB/PR Minnesota Vikings

Week 5 vs Houston Texans

Sherels was the lone bright spot. He returned four punts for 100 yards including a 79 yard touchdown return. He also returned one kickoff for 17 yards. He became the first Viking ever to return two punts for touchdowns in a single season...and its only Week 5!!

Week 6 Bye

The Vikings get a week off before continuing as the only undefeated team in the NFL.

Marcus Sherels makes the best out of an injury plagued week.
