Hokies in the NFL: Week 13

Josh Morgan, or should we call him Joshy on the Spot?--NO. NO WE SHOULDN'T. THAT IS A HORRIBLE JOKE--returned a fumble for a touchdown and Roc Carmichael saw more action on defense. Cody Grimm has been sidelined on injured reserve for the Bucs.

Rob Carr

As with last year, no offensive lineman are mentioned because it's just too hard to really tell how they performed. The Hokies in the NFL are below in alphabetical order:

Xavier Adibi, LB Tennessee Titans- Adibi was active this week, but did not accumulate any stats.

James Anderson, LB Carolina Panthers- Anderson and the Panthers went on the road to Kansas City to play a Chiefs that was still shaking from the aftermath of Jovan Belcher's suicide. Anderson totaled three tackles (all solo) in the loss.

Jarrett Boykin, WR Green Bay Packers- Boykin was targeted once on a 3rd down pass (it was incomplete) and earned a special teams tackle on kickoff coverage in the Green Bay win over division rival Minnesota.

Roc Carmichael, CB Houston Texans- After making his NFL debut a week ago, Carmichael was more involved in the Texans' game plan, earning four of his five tackles as part of the defensive plan instead of special teams. Carmichael also broke up a pass intended for Tennessee WR Kendall Wright. He was also flagged for a personal foul on special teams, but since I didn't see the game I'm not sure what it was exactly.

Kam Chancellor, SS Seattle Seahawks- Chancellor was second on the team in tackles, racking up eight total, seven of which were solo efforts, in the Seahawks' win over the Bears.

Shayne Graham, K Houston Texans- Graham was one of one on the day, converting a 50-yard try and adding three of three extra points.
1/1 (50), 3/3 XP

Cody Grimm, FS Tampa Bay Buccaneers- Grimm was placed on injured reserve by the Bucs, yet again cutting a season short for the safety.

Darren Evans, RB Tennessee Titans- Evans was active this week, but did not accumulate any stats.

Brandon Flowers, CB Kansas City Chiefs- Flowers left the game against the Panthers early after injuring his hamstring. The very next play after Flowers went out, the man that he would (likely) be covering, Steve Smith, caught a touchdown pass. Flowers totaled two tackles in the win.

DeAngelo Hall, CB Washington Redskins- Hall earned four total tackles, three as solo efforts in the Redskins' victory over the Giants.

Jayron Hosley, CB New York Giants- Hosley played in Monday Night's game but did not accumulate any stats.

Jeff King, TE Arizona Cardinals- King did not accumulate any stats in the Cardinals' loss to the Jets. Why didn't he catch a pass? Probably because starting quarterback Ryan Lindley (who?) completed just 10 of 31 passes for 72 yards. The Cardinals only lost by a point, due in large part to New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez throwing three interceptions.

Josh Morgan, WR Washington Redskins- Morgan found himself in the right place at the right time as he recovered a RGIII fumble and ran it 13 yards to the endzone to score the opening touchdown for the Redskins. Griffin III kept the ball on an option and was on the way to the ground before the ball came out. In an effort to recover his own fumble, he ended up flipping it right up and into the hands of Morgan, who took it the rest of the way for a touchdown. Morgan also caught two passes for 17 yards in the victory.

Eddie Royal, WR San Diego Chargers- Eddie was inactive again this week.

Darryl Tapp, DE Philadelphia Eagles- Tapp earned two tackles, both as solo efforts.

Tyrod Taylor, QB Baltimore Ravens- Tyrod did not accumulate any stats.

Michael Vick, QB Philadelphia Eagles- Vick was still on the sidelines with concussion related symptoms during the Eagles' loss to the Cowboys. Sad that I can use the exact same line as last week and just plug in a new team.

David Wilson, RB New York Giants- Wilson was involved in the run game a little more, rushing the ball four times for nine yards in the Giants' loss to the Redskins. Wilson also returned four kicks for a total of 83 yards, with a long of 26 yards.
4 RUSH, 9 YDS; 4 RET, 83 YDS

Jason Worilds LB Pittsburgh Steelers- Worilds accumulated three total tackles, all as solo tackles and all on the same drive, in the Steelers' win over the Ravens. 3 TAK, 3 SOLO

Inactive/Practice squad players: WR Danny Coale, Dallas Cowboys (practice squad).

Player of the week: Going to give it to Josh Morgan for his play, turning a potential drive-ending fumble into a touchdown.
