Knights in the NFL: Week 10 Recap

New, 4 comments
Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY Sports

This past weekend was a rough one for all Jersey football fans. Rutgers, the Giants, the Jets, and the Eagles all lost. If that's not bad enough, we saw a number of injuries, inactives, and mediocre performances from our Knights in the NFL. Despite all this, let's take a look back on the week that was:

Injuries

George Johnson: Johnson was having a solid game with 4 tackles for the Bucs defense before he left the game with a calf injury. Johnson was unable to return, though his team came out with the 10-6 victory over the Cowboys.

Jason McCourty: McCourty re-aggravated his groin injury that has plagued him all season. He will undergo another groin surgery, landing him on Injury Reserve. With McCourty's absence, the Titans were no match for the Carolina offense, as they were defeated 27-10.

Jeremy Zuttah: Zuttah was forced to leave the game in the 4th quarter after re-injuring his shoulder. In the end, Zuttah's Ravens suffered a disappointing 22-20 loss to the Jaguars.

Inactives

Tim Wright; Detroit Lions

Marcus Cooper; Kansas City Chiefs

Play on the Field

Michael Burton: Burton had one carry for no gain, but was also able to make a solid tackle on special teams. Brandon Coleman: Despite an exciting homecoming for the DC native, Coleman's disappointing season continues, as he finds himself with fewer and fewer opportunities in the New Orleans' offense. He had just one catch for 14 yards in the Saints' 47-14 loss to the Redskins.

Jonathan Freeny: While splitting time with Jerod Mayo, Freeny had a solid game for the Patriots, as he recorded 8 tackles with one pass defended in the thrilling 27-26 victory over the Giants.

Duron Harmon: Harmon was responsible for a possible Not Top 10 play on Sportscenter, as Danny Amendola was set score a huge touchdown on a kickoff return, when Harmon tripped him up at the 5 yard line.

Devin McCourty: Although McCourty recorded 3 tackles against the Giants, his day was defined by a potential tackle that he whiffed on. While covering Odell Beckham Jr., McCourty got burnt on an 87 yard touchdown play by OBJ in the 1st quarter.

Week 10 Scarlet MVP

With the... less than stellar play by our Knights in the NFL during Week 10, the MVP this week has to go to two players' gameday attire. Mohamed Sanu continued to sport his weekly custom cleats, the latest of which were Joker-themed.

Logan Ryan also paid homage to his alma mater while in East Rutherford, sporting a pair of Rutgers gloves. Well done!
