Week 9 of the NFL season did not go great for the former Gophers in the league. Injuries reigned with De’Vondre Campbell and Antoine Winfield, Jr. missing games and the news that Rashod Bateman will miss the rest of the season. The lone bright spot this week was Benjamin St. Juste but he couldn’t do enough to get his team a win.
