Marshall in the NFL: Week 5

Weekly review of Marshall alumni in the National Football League.

1. Ahmad Bradshaw, Running Back, Indianapolis Colts

Ahmad Bradshaw sat out a second straight week, sidelined with a neck injury that could require season ending surgery but, that is not certain.

2. Chris Crocker, Safety, Cincinnati Bengals

Bengals safety Chris Crocker registered seven tackles, (including one against fellow Marshall alum Aaron Dobson) two tackles for loss, and two passes defended during a 13-6 win over the New England Patriots.

In Sunday’s 36-21 win against the New York Giants, Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Vinny Curry recorded one tackle and a quarterback hit.

4. Aaron Dobson, Wide Receiver, New England Patriots

On rainy day in Cincinnati, Aaron Dobson caught two passes from Patriots quarterback Tom Brady for 49 yards.

5. Mario Harvey, Linebacker, Indianapolis Colts

It doesn’t show up on the stat sheet but, Mario Harvey laid a vicious hit on Seahawks punter Jon Ryan during a blocked field goal return. The Colts scored on the play but, it was not enough to beat Seattle as Indianapolis fell 34-28.

6. Albert McClellan, Linebacker, Baltimore Ravens

Limited in practice last week while recovering from a shoulder injury, Albert McClellan was active for the Baltimore Ravens 26-23 win over the Miami Dolphins but did not register any stats.

7. Doug Legursky, Guard/Center, Buffalo Bills

After missing the season’s first four games because of a knee injury, Doug Legursky was active for the Buffalo Bills 37-24 loss to the Cleveland Browns. Legursky rotated in a left guard, splitting reps with Colin Brown.

8. Lee Smith, Tight End, Buffalo Bills

Despite being targeted on one pass play, Bills tight end Lee Smith did not record a catch during Thursday’s loss to the Browns.

9. C.J. Spillman, Safety, San Francisco 49ers

C.J. Spillam was instrumental during the San Francisco 49ers 34-3 win over the Texans, making two special teams tackles that pinned Houston deep in their own territory.
