Badgers in the NFL: Week 3

New, 2 comments

Melvin Gordon sets a Wisconsin touchdown record, Alec Ingold finds the end zone and James White suffers a serious injury.

  • Russell Wilson, QB (Seahawks): Wilson completed 23-of-32 passes for 298 yards and one touchdown in Seattle’s loss to the Vikings.
  • Jonathan Taylor, RB (Colts): Taylor rushed for a season-high 64 yards on just 10 carries, while adding one catch for eight receiving yards in Week 3. The second-year pro has yet to have a breakout game and still hasn’t found the end zone through three weeks.
  • James White, RB (Patriots): White logged just six offensive snaps before being carted off the field with a hip injury on Sunday. The Patriots have already ruled White out indefinitely and a trip to the IR seems highly likely.
  • Melvin Gordon, RB (Broncos): The seven-year veteran turned 18 carries into 61 rushing yards and a touchdown in Denver’s win over the Jets. Gordon became Wisconsin’s all-time leader in NFL touchdowns scored with 59, passing former wide receiver Chris Chambers on Sunday.
  • Corey Clement, RB (Cowboys): Clement was named a special teams captain by the Cowboys for Monday night’s game against the Eagles, his former team. He finished with zero rushing yards on three carries and also played 70% of special teams snaps in Dallas’ win.
  • Dare Ogunbowale, RB (Jaguars): The former walk-on saw his first action at running back this season, logging five offensive snaps. Ogunbowale also played 66% of special teams snaps in the Jaguars’ loss to the Cardinals.
  • Derek Watt, FB (Steelers): Watt played 8% of offensive snaps and hauled in his lone target for three yards in Week 3. He also saw playing time on 71% of special teams snaps and had one solo tackle.
  • Alec Ingold, FB (Raiders): Ingold logged 28 snaps at fullback and had a one-yard touchdown catch in the Raiders’ win over the Dolphins. He also played 58% of special teams snaps and notched one tackle in the game.
  • Ryan Ramczyk, OT (Saints): Ramczyk started at right tackle and played every offensive snap in the Saints’ win over the Patriots.
  • Rob Havenstein, OT (Rams): The seven-year veteran started at right tackle and played 100% of offensive snaps in the Rams’ win over the Buccaneers.
  • Kevin Zeitler, OG (Ravens): Zeitler started at right guard and played all 58 offensive snaps for the Ravens in Week 3.
  • David Edwards, OG (Rams): Edwards once again started at left guard and played every offensive snap for the Rams on Sunday.
  • Michael Deiter, C (Dolphins): The former third-round pick started at center and played all 83 offensive snaps in the Dolphins’ overtime loss to the Raiders.
  • Tyler Biadasz, C (Cowboys): Biadasz started at center for the third straight week and played 100% of offensive snaps for the Cowboys on Monday night.
  • Quintez Cephus, WR (Lions): Cephus played 71% of offensive snaps but finished with just one catch for eight yards in the Lions’ heartbreaking loss to the Ravens.
  • Alex Erickson, WR (Panthers): Erickson hauled in his only target for 25 yards and had two punt returns for 17 return yards against the Texans, the team that cut him in August. In all, Erickson logged 14 snaps (six offensive, eight special teams) in the Panthers’ Thursday night win.
  • J.J. Watt, DE (Cardinals): Watt was on the field for 82% of defensive snaps and finished with two total tackles, including one tackle for loss in Week 3.
  • T.J. Watt, LB (Steelers): Last season’s sack leader was forced to miss Sunday’s game against the Bengals due to a groin injury suffered last week. The good news is that Watt nearly played and should be back on the field for Week 4, barring any setbacks.
  • Joe Schobert, LB (Steelers): The six-year veteran started at inside linebacker and notched five total tackles in the Steelers’ loss to the Bengals. Schobert saw action on 89% of defensive snaps and 17% of special teams snaps in the game.
  • Andrew Van Ginkel, LB (Dolphins): Van Ginkel was on the field for 41% of defensive snaps and finished with three total tackles and one quarterback hit in Week 3.
  • T.J. Edwards, LB (Eagles): Edwards started at inside linebacker and played 40% of defensive snaps in the Eagles’ Monday night loss to the Cowboys. He tallied four total tackles and one sack in the loss.
  • Ryan Connelly, LB (Vikings): Connelly played 60% of special teams snaps and had no tackles in the Vikings’ win over the Seahawks.
  • Zack Baun, LB (Saints): Baun played a season-low 10% of defensive snaps and finished with one solo tackle and a quarterback hit in Week 3. The second-year pro also played 79% of special teams snaps.
