Don Barclay – Listed as the third string left guard for the Packers, Barclay received plenty of time on Thursday night. Wearing No. 67, he looked better in run blocking than pass. He held off pass rushers long enough for the quarterback to get off passes on a three-step drop or quick five-step drop, but his man was able to put pressure on the QB after that. Early in the fourth, the Packers lined up on 3rd and short and ran behind Barclay for a touchdown.
Thomas led the Bears with seven tackles on Thursday night.
Chris Neild – The defensive tackle came in fighting for a roster spot according to local papers and really impressed. Playing the nose for Washington, he recorded two tackles, one for loss and a sack in the Redskins 7-6 victory on Thursday night.
Corey McIntyre – The long-time NFL vet, heading into his ninth season, started at fullback for the Bills once again. As a starter, he didn’t play much and didn’t carry the ball or catch any passes.
J.T. Thomas – Thomas led the Chicago Bears in tackles on Thursday night, registering seven stops (four of them solo). He added on one tackle for loss and a pass deflection.
Tyler Urban – Battling in a tight end logjam in New England, Urban showed a reliable set of hands in his limited time, catching one pass for 20 yards and a first down. It was the only time he was targeted during the game.
Ryan Mundy – Mundy has become a familiar face for the Steelers, helping shore up their defensive backfield. On Thursday night, in limited action, he registered two tackles.
Mortty Ivy – Ivy also saw time as a backup for the Steelers, registering a tackle on the evening.
Will Johnson – Johnson made his way onto the field for the Steelers both on special teams and at fullback. He did not register any statistic for the official box score and is listed as the team's No. 2 fullback. However, after the game, word came down that the starting fullback, David Johnson, tore his ACL and is now out for the season. Will Johnson is now the only fullback on the roster.
On Friday, Selvish Capers (Giants), Najee Goode (Bucs), Adam Jones (Bengals), Ellis Lankster (Jets), Robert Sands (Bengals), Steve Slaton (Dolphins) and Keith Tandy (Bucs) are scheduled to play.
Brandon Hogan (Panthers), Bruce Irvin (Seahawks) and Darius Reynaud (Titans) are set for Saturday; while Pat McAfee (Colts) plays on Sunday and Owen Schmitt (Raiders) on Monday.
