The Hoosiers in the NFL had a big week as Jordan Howard went for three touchdowns and Wes Martin earned his first start with the Washington Redskins.
Tevin Coleman – San Francisco 49ers
Tevin Coleman is nursing a sprained ankle and is expected to make a return sometime in October. The 49ers were off with a bye week.
Jordan Howard – Philadelphia Eagles
Jordan Howard had an offensive explosion on Thursday night against the Packers in what was by far his best game with the Philadelphia Eagles. Howard scored three touchdowns on the day, two on the ground and one receiving. Howard accumulated 87 rushing yards on 15 carries, good enough for 5.8 yards-per-attempt. Howard added three receptions for 28 yards. The Eagles offense looked unstoppable and so did Jordan Howard. If Thursday was any indication of what the Eagles offense will look like, Hoosiers will need to keep an eye on Howard.
Ian Thomas – Carolina Panthers
Ian Thomas was not targeted in Carolina's victory over the Texans on Sunday. The young tight end did not record a statistic for the third straight week. Thomas hopes to find a role in an offense trying to adjust without quarterback Cam Newton.
Cody Latimer – New York Giants
Wide receiver Cody Latimer returned to action after dealing with a calf strain. Latimer was not targeted and did not record a statistic during the Giants’ win over Washington.
Nate Sudfeld – Philadelphia Eagles
Nate Sudfeld is recovering from a fractured wrist suffered in the preseason. He is expected to make a return between late October and mid-November.
Chris Covington – Dallas Cowboys
Chris Covington was inactive for the Cowboys this week in their loss to New Orleans.
Dan Feeney – Los Angeles Chargers
Dan Feeney and the Chargers were outscored 20-3 in the second half in a loss to the Houston Texans at home. LA is 1-2 so far this year.
Brandon Knight – Dallas Cowboys
Brandon Knight was inactive for Dallas’ loss against the Saints.
Wes Martin – Washington Redskins
Wes Martin, rookie offensive guard, was active for Washington’s loss to the Giants this week. Sunday marked Martin’s first career start at right guard.
Roger Saffold – Tennessee Titans
Roger Saffold and the Titans won a key road game in Atlanta to get back to .500 on the season.
Jason Spriggs - Green Bay Packers
