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

Six weeks of the 2020 NFL season are now complete for 11 former IU stars with teams in the league.

Take a look at how they did with our quick weekly recap of the Hoosiers in the NFL.

Tevin Coleman (RB) – San Francisco 49ers

Coleman did not play on Sunday despite being eligible to return from injured reserve.  Coleman is unlikely to return in week seven as he continues to recover from a knee sprain.

For the season Coleman has 18 rushes for 30 yards.  He has added 3 catches for 34 yards in two games.

Dan Feeney (OL) – Los Angeles Chargers

The Chargers were on a bye in week six.

Feeney has started all five games and played 100 percent of the offensive snaps this year.

Jordan Howard (RB) – Miami Dolphins

Howard was a healthy scratch in week six.  It was the second week in a row that he was inactive.

On the season Howard has 18 carries for 14 yards and 3 touchdowns.  He has one reception for -3 yards.

Brandon Knight (OL) – Dallas Cowboys

Knight started against the Cardinals.  It was his fourth start in six games.  With injuries on the offensive line, Knight appears primed to start for the rest of the season.  He played 100 percent of the offensive snaps on Monday.

Dallas (2-4) rushed 27 times for 97 yards and allowed three sacks.

UPDATE:  Knight is expected to miss a couple weeks with a knee injury.

Wes Martin (OL) – Washington

After starting every game for Washington at left guard through the first five weeks, Martin only saw a few special teams snaps in week six.

Washington’s offensive struggles continued the Football Team fell to 1-5 in a 20-19 loss to the Giants.

Rodger Saffold (OL) – Tennessee Titans

Saffold appeared in his 135th NFL game, starting for the 132nd time.  The longest tenured Hoosier in the NFL helped lead Tennessee to 263 rushing yards and more than 600 total yards.  Saffold played in 100 percent of the offensive snaps.

The Titans moved to 5-0 with the win.

Jason Spriggs (OL) – Chicago Bears

Spriggs has been active all season for the 5-1 Bears, appearing in one game.  He did not register any statistics during week six.

Nate Sudfeld (QB) – Philadelphia Eagles

Sudfeld was inactive for the fifth straight week.  Philadelphia fell to 1-4-1 on the season after losing to Baltimore.  With backup Jalen Hurts now involved in the offense, Sudfeld is likely to remain inactive on gamedays.

Ian Thomas (TE) – Carolina Panthers

Thomas continues to have an insignificant role in the Panthers passing attack.  He caught his lone target for a nine yard reception.  Thomas was on the field for 69 percent of Carolina’s offensive snaps in a loss to Chicago.  The Panthers moved to 3-3 on the season.

On the year Thomas has 6 catches for 39 yards and a score.

Nick Westbrook-Ikhine (WR) – Tennessee Titans

Westbrook appeared in his fourth game and started for Tennessee.  While he didn’t officially catch a pass, Westbrook scored his first NFL points when he caught a two-point conversion late in the game.  He played on 36 percent of the offensive snaps, and 24 percent of the special teams snaps.  The Titans moved to 5-0.

Westbrook has 1 catch for 7 yards on the season.

Simon Stepaniak (OL) – Green Bay Packers

The Packers rookie has been on the non football injury list for the first six weeks of the season as he continues to recover from knee surgery.  We will share an update when Stepaniak is cleared to return.

NOTE:  Former IU linebacker Tegray Scales is on the Tampa Bay practice squad.
