As per usual, the Bills came up short of beating the Texans

Post

The Eagles had a big win over the Giants to kick off Week 6 Color Rush Mike Wallace Jersey , which meant a whole lot of time on Sunday to watch former Philadelphia players with their new teams.There’s been no updates on the Eagles trying to get McCoy back via trade, but at least on the field, the rusher is still productive.Here’s how some other former Eagles performed in Week 6:D-Jax misses (potential) game-winning catchThe Buccaneers were thissssss close to pulling off a late-game win over the Atlanta Falcons, but wide receiver DeSean Jackson couldn’t make the catch on what was a wild final play from Tampa Bay. He was obviously frustrated following the play, and nearly walked right into the locker room before saying good game to at least one Falcon before heading into the tunnel. The Bucs ended up losing 29-34 to an absolutely decimated Atlanta team, and fall to 2-3 so far on the season.Jackson didn’t make the initial catch, but it seems he gave up on the play a little too early, with reports later coming in that he could have still picked up the ball and tried for the score. The former Eagle wide out finished the day with four catches for 77 yard, getting him just over 500 receiving yards on the season and three touchdowns.Additionally for Tampa Bay, Beau Allen was back from a foot injury and recorded one tackle Color Rush Corey Clement Jersey , and Vinny Curry had three total tackles against Atlanta, including a stuff.Torrey gets a TDDespite losing on Sunday, Panthers wideout Torrey Smith nearly doubled his production this season, and nabbed his second touchdown by way of Cam Newton. Smith had five catches in Week 6 against Washington, for 43 yards and a score. Burton gets a score tooIt seems like the Bears are perfectly content targeting tight end Trey Burton in the redzone, and it worked for them again on Sunday against the Dolphins. Burton had just four catches, but went 23 yards and into the endzone, marking his third touchdown in only 15 receptions this season.Worley solidified a starting spotThe Raiders might currently be a dumpster fire, but cornerback Daryl Worley has earned his role among the starting lineup after serving his four-game suspension. He essentially took the job from second-year player Gareon Conley, but he made it pretty easy for the coaching staff to decide.In Sunday’s game against the Seahawks, Worley had five total tackles, two pass breakups, and an interception he returned for 16 yards. He made a critical pick on a tipped pass into the endzone Youth Carson Wentz Jersey , and was able to keep Russel Wilson from putting even more points on the board — at least on that drive.Play of the WeekMarcus JohnsonThe second-year player out of Texas didn’t get much playing time for the Eagles last season, but after a short stint in Seattle, found a good spot for him with the Colts. In just five games with Indianapolis, Johnson has six catches for 102 yards — including five first downs — and on Sunday, made his first career touchdown catch.Injuries, Inactives and Bye WeeksKicker Caleb Sturgis has a strained quadriceps and wasn’t available for the Chargers this weekend against the Browns. Instead, the team signed Mike Badgley, who could end up competing for the job full-time depending on Sturgis’ return timetable. (Speaking of former Eagles kickers, Cody Parkey missed a 53-yard attempt for the Bears in overtime.)Bennie Logan was inactive for the Titans in Week 6 due to an elbow injury.Quarterback Sam Bradford continues to ride the bench for the Arizona Cardinals. He talked about the weird change in his role with the organization, and how he’s focused on helping the team in other ways.There are just two teams on bye this week, the Detroit Lions (LeGarrette Blount) and New Orleans Saints (Patrick Robinson [IR])Rumor: Eagles adding 2016 third-round pick to their practice squad The Philadelphia Eagles will be adding free agent wide receiver Braxton Miller to their practice squad, according to Alex Gleitman of 247Sports. As far as practice squad signings go, this is an intriguing one. Miller was selected by the Houston Texans with the No. 85 overall pick (third round) in the 2016 NFL Draft after playing four seasons at Ohio State. Miller spent his first three seasons at quarterback for the Buckeyes. He finished fifth in the 2012 Heisman Trophy voting and ninth in 2013. Miller suffered a shoulder injury that caused him to be a medical redshirt in 2014 before he ultimately changed positions to wide receiver in 2015. In two seasons with the Texans Derek Barnett Jersey , Miller appeared in 21 games (nine starts). He logged 34 receptions for 261 receiving yards (7.7 average), and two touchdowns. He also had four rushing attempts for one yard. Miller returned four punts for a total of 13 yards and three kickoffs for a total of 41 yards.All of this is to say that Miller, who turns 26 years old in November, has struggled to produce at the NFL level. The Texans decided he wasn’t worth keeping around anymore so they waived him during final cuts last weekend.So why are the Eagles taking a chance on him? Well, Miller is pretty athletic.And the Eagles are pretty thin at wide receiver with both Alshon Jeffery and Mack Hollins missing time. Philadelphia currently has only five healthy receivers on the 53-man roster: Nelson Agholor, Mike Wallace, DeAndre Carter, Shelton Gibson, and Markus Wheaton.Another reason why this report makes sense is that the Eagles waived the two receivers they were storing on their practice squad — Rashard Davis and Greg Ward Jr. — on Friday afternoon. They have two vacant spots on the scout team and it looks like Miller will be filling one.
