Hoosiers in the NFL: Week 11 results and notes for former IU football stars in the league

Eleven weeks of the 2020 NFL season are now complete for 12 former IU stars with teams in the league.

With a weekly update that looks more like an infirmary report, take a look at how they did with our quick recap of the Hoosiers in the NFL.

Tevin Coleman (RB) – San Francisco 49ers

The 49ers had a bye week.  Coleman has dealt with a knee injury all year but he is likely to return for week 12.

For the season Coleman has 21 rushes for 50 yards (2.4 ypc).  He has added 3 catches for 34 yards.

Dan Feeney (OL) – Los Angeles Chargers

Feeney has started all ten games and played 100 percent of the offensive snaps this year for Los Angeles.  He also played in 16 percent of the special teams snaps including 20 percent on Sunday.

The Chargers finally got a win, moving to 3-7 on the season.  LA scored 27 offensive points while rushing 26 times for just 29 yards and passing for 347 yards while allowing 3 sacks.

Jordan Howard (RB) – Miami Dolphins

After a mutual parting with Miami, Howard is back with Philadelphia, this time on the practice squad.

Since he has registered NFL stats in 2020 (28 carries, 33 yards, 4 TDs) we will keep him with the active players.

For his five year NFL career, Howard has 3,928 yards rushing (4.2 ypc) and 34 touchdowns.  He has added 83 receptions for another 634 yards and two more scores.

Brandon Knight (OL) – Dallas Cowboys

Knight was activated from injured reserve but did not play on Sunday.  He has started four times in six games for Dallas and is expected to return this season after knee surgery.

Wes Martin (OL) – Washington

Martin saw a few snaps with the Washington offense in week 11.  It was his first action with that unit since week 5 when he started to open the season.

Martin also continued to play on special teams.

Washington beat the Bengals on Sunday to remain in the NFC East hunt.

On the season Martin has played in 49 percent of the offensive snaps and 14 percent on special teams.

Rodger Saffold (OL) – Tennessee Titans

Saffold missed his first full game of the season with an ankle injury.

He has appeared in 139 NFL games with 136 starts and is the longest tenured Hoosier in the NFL,

On the season Spriggs has played in 10 percent of the offensive snaps and 1 percent on special teams.

Nate Sudfeld (QB) – Philadelphia Eagles

Sudfeld is on the active roster but has been inactive on game day for most of the season including Sunday against the Browns.

Ian Thomas (TE) – Carolina Panthers

Thomas was held to no catches with no targets in week 11. Thomas was on the field for 56 percent of Carolina’s offensive snaps as the Panthers improved to 4-7 on the season.

On the year Thomas has 12 catches for 93 yards and a score while playing on 64 percent of the offensive snaps.

Nick Westbrook-Ikhine (WR) – Tennessee Titans

Westbrook appeared in his ninth game for Tennessee.  He played on no offensive snaps, and 41 percent of the special teams snaps.  It was on special teams where Westbrook hauled in his only target, on a successful fake punt play for 7 yards. The Titans improved to 7-3 with a loss to the Ravens.

Westbrook has 2 catches for 14 yards on the season and a two-point conversion catch.  He has one start and has played on 16 percent of the offensive snaps and 33 percent of the special teams snaps overall.

Simon Stepaniak (OL) – Green Bay Packers

The Packers rookie has been on the non football injury list as he continues to recover from knee surgery.  Stepaniak was reported to have participated in his first practices last week.
