Calvin Anderson – OT, Broncos
Anderson was called upon for extended action on Thursday Night Football when starter Garrett Bolles left the game with an injury. He’s expected to miss the remainder of the season, meaning Anderson could see a lot more involvement moving forward.
Kylen Gransen – TE, Colts
Gransen snagged one pass in the Colts’ Week 5 loss to the Broncos. He’s now caught at least one pass in each of the team’s first five games this season.
Nick Leverett – OT, Buccaneers
Leverett was active but did not play for the Bucs in their Week 5 win over the Falcons.
Myles Adams – DL, Seahawks
Adams picked up his first tackle of the season on Sunday against the Aints, playing a season-high 29 percent of the defensive snaps in the process.
Bryce Callahan – CB, Chargers
Callahan made two tackles on Sunday in the Chargers’ win over the Browns. That marks the fifth consecutive game this season in which he’s accounted for multiple tackles.
Christian Covington – DL, Chargers
Covington was active for the second consecutive game, making two solo tackles and one tackle for a loss on Sunday in the Chargers’ win over the Browns. He’s now had multiple tackles in every game he’s been active this season.
Jack Fox – P, Lions
The Lions were shut out by the Patriots this past weekend, but surprisingly still only called upon their punting unit two times. Fox booted a long punt of 56 yards and put one ball inside the 20.
Chris Boswell – K, Steelers
Boswell went one of three on his field goal attempts on Sunday against the Bills, mirroring an unsuccessful day from the team as a whole.
