New, 1 comment

It was a low key week for the former Gophers this week

NFL: Kansas City Chiefs at Los Angeles Chargers Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sports

Week 4 in the NFL has passed up by and it was the most low key week of the season so far for the former Gophers. But you can’t always have career games in back to back weeks. Here is our recap of how the former Minnesota Golden Gophers performed in Week 4 in the NFL and a look ahead to Week 5.

Maxx Williams— Tight End— Arizona Cardinals

Week 4 @ Carolina Panthers

Week 5 @ New York Jets

Maxx missed his second of at least three games after being put on IR for the Cardinals.

De’Vondre Campbell—Linebacker—Arizona Cardinals

Week 4 @ Carolina Panthers

Week 5 @ New York Jets

Campbell played all 77 defensive snaps for Arizona and recorded four solo tackles and five assisted tackles in the Cardinals loss to Carolina.

Chris Streveler-QB-Arizona Cardinals

Week 4 @ Carolina Panthers

Week 5 @ New York Jets

For the second week in a row we did not get to see a trick play with Streveler in the game for Arizona. He remains the backup QB.

Eric Murray-Safety Houston Texans

Week 4 vs Minnesota Vikings

Week 5 vs Jacksonville Jaguars

Murray played all 66 defensive snaps for the Texans and recorded three tackles in the loss to the Vikings on Sunday. The Texans are now 0-4 on the season and their head coach Bill O’Brien was fired on Monday.

Damien Wilson—Linebacker—Kansas City Chiefs

Week 4 vs New England Patriots

Week 5 vs Los Vegas Raiders

Wilson recorded two tackles and added one assisted tackle as the Chiefs defeated the Patriots on Monday after the game was postponed a day due to COVID considerations.

Blake Cashman—Linebacker—New York Jets

Week 4 vs Denver Broncos

Week 5 vs Arizona Cardinals

Cashman sat out his third of at least three games on IR as the Jets fell to 0-4. Cashman is expected to return to play this week as the Jets host a slew of former Gophers and the Arizona Cardinals

Antoine Winfield Jr. —Safety—Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Week 3 @ Denver Broncos

Week 4 vs Los Angeles Chargers

Week 5 @ Chicago Bears (TNF)

Winfield had his least productive day as a pro on Sunday recording just two tackles in the Bucs win over the Chargers. Winfield did play all 53 defensive snaps for Tampa, but the plays just didn’t come to him.

In other news, Winfield was named the NFL Defensive Rookie of the Month for September earlier this week as well. Pretty impressive.

Tyler Johnson-WR-Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Week 4 vs Los Angeles Chargers

Week 5 @ Chicago Bears (TNF)

Johnson played for the second week in a row for Tampa Bay and saw 25 offensive snaps. However he wasn’t targeted and did not record any stats in the Bucs win over the Chargers. Hopefully his first NFL catch can come on Thursday Night Football against the Bears

Carter Coughlin-LB-New York Giants

Week 4 @ Los Angeles Rams
Week 5 @ Dallas Cowboys

Coughlin was inactive for the Giants loss to the Rams on Sunday. It’s not known whether it was a healthy scratch or whether he was banged up. Hopefully he can return this week against Dallas.
