It was a very disappointing week for Gopher alums in the NFL in Week 5. A week after some great plays, several players hardly played at all, or got injured during their games.
Maxx Williams— Tight End—Baltimore Ravens
Week 5 at Cleveland Browns
Williams played 27 snaps at tight end for the Ravens in their OT loss to Cleveland but for the first time this season did not make a single catch.
Week 6 at Tennessee Titans
Briean Boddy-Calhoun—Cornerback—Cleveland Browns
Week 5 vs Baltimore Ravens
Boddy-Calhoun played just one defensive snap in the Browns win over the Ravens. So no BBC covering Maxx at all.
Week 6 vs Los Angeles Chargers
Tramaine Brock—Defensive Back—Denver Broncos
Week 5 vs @ New York Jets
Brock was inactive for the second consecutive week in the Broncos loss to the Jets.
Week 6 vs Los Angeles Rams
Eric Murray—Cornerback—Kansas City Chiefs
Week 5 vs Jacksonville Jaguars
Murray only played four snaps in KC’s win to go to 5-0 after leaving with what was initially reported to be a lower leg injury. Andy Reid called it a sprained ankle postgame. We will need to wait and look at the injury report to see if Murray will be healthy for a huge Sunday night game in New England.
Week 6 at New England Patriots (Sunday Night)
Damien Wilson—Linebacker—Dallas Cowboys
Week 5 at Houston Texans (Sunday Night)
Wilson played 24 defensive snaps in the Cowboys OT loss to the Texans Sunday night. He had one tackle in the game, and it was a tackle for loss.
Week 6 vs Jacksonville Jaguars
Marcus Sherels—Cornerback/Returner—Minnesota Vikings
Week 5 at Philadelphia Eagles
Sherels was inactive for the third consecutive game with a rib injury suffered against the packers in Week 2.
Week 6 vs Arizona Cardinals
De’Vondre Campbell—Linebacker—Atlanta Falcons
Week 5 at Pittsburgh Steelers
Campbell recorded just one solo tackle and two assisted tackles on 52 defensive snaps in the Falcons blowout loss to the Steelers.
Week 6 vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Marqueis Gray-Miami Dolphins
Jalen Myrick—Minnesota Vikings
Nate Wozniak—New Orleans Saints
We lose a player this week as Steven Richardson was cut from the Chargers practice squad last week.
