Nick Leverett – OT, Buccaneers
Leverett and the Bucs were on bye in Week 5.
Austin Trammell – WR, Rams
Trammell has found a role as the Rams’ punt returner, but that didn’t equate to much usage on Sunday against the Eagles who punted just one time. Trammell called a fair catch.
Myles Adams – DL, Seahawks
Adams and the Seahawks were on bye in Week 5.
Elijah Garcia – DL, Broncos
Garcia made his presence felt on Sunday against the Jets, registering his first career sack and stripping quarterback Zach Wilson of the football in the process. The Jets would recover the loose ball.
Jack Fox – P, Lions
Fox was only called upon twice in the Lions’ one-sided victory over the Panthers on Sunday, but he delivered on both occasions. Each of his punts was downed inside the 20 with the longest kick going 55 yards.
Chris Boswell – K, Steelers
Boswell was a perfect 3-for-3 against the Ravens, connecting from a long of 43 yards. He’s a perfect 15-for-15 on field goal tries so far this season.
