Week 6 was a good one for Cowboy Alumni in the NFL, almost everyone that played had arguably their best game of the season thus far including some career firsts. Malcom Floyd and Tashaun Gipson both continued to shine for their respective teams and rookies Marqueston Huff and Robert Herron continue to see their role’s expand.
Malcom Floyd, WR, San Diego Chargers- Floyd had his best game of the season against the Raiders, he caught 5 passes for 103 yards, including a 5 yard TD and a leaping 44 yard grab over Charles Woodson. His big game helped the Chargers (5-1) defeat the Raiders 31-28. Floyd’s average yds/catch didn’t go down much (21.3) and he remains among the league leaders in that category.
2014 Stats: 6 G 6 GS 17 REC 363 YDS 21.3 YDS/REC 60.3 YDS/GAME 3 TD.
Week 4: 24 yard TD

Tashaun Gipson, S, Cleveland Browns- Gipson had a season high 9 tackles in the Browns (3-2) 31-10 win over the Steelers. He is 3rd on the Browns with 28 TT and 4th on the team with 15 solo tackles, he also leads the team with 2 INT and is the Browns only interception returned for a TD. His 2 INT’s is for T8 in the NFL and his 79 return yards is good for 4th.

Robert Herron, WR, Tampa Bay Buccaneers- Herron had his first multi catch game of his young career in the Bucs (1-5) 17-48 loss to the Ravens this week. He caught 2 passes for 31 yards, his 16 yard and 15 yard receptions were also his longest of the season. Herron continues to get more involved in the offense as the season progresses.

Week 5: 9 Yard touchdown catch

Marqueston Huff, DB, Tennessee Titans- Huff had the best game of his rookie season in the Titans (2-4) 16-14 win over the Jags. He recorded 4 TT, three solo, including his first career sack in an expanded role this week. It appeared to me he was playing nickel back and they sent him on a blitz a few times.
2014 Stats: 6 G 0 GS 8 TT 5 SOLO 3 AST 1 Sack 0 PD O INT
Next Week: @ Redskins (1-5) 11:00 AM MT
Mitch Unrein, DT, Denver Broncos- Unrein was inactive again this week for the Broncos (4-1) 31-17 victory over the Jets. Unrein has now been inactive for 4 of Denver’s 5 games.

Mike Purcell, DT, San Francisco 49ers- Purcell remains on the Niners practice squad, where he has been all season.
This Week: @ Rams (1-3) Mon. 6:30 PM MDT
Next Week: @ Broncos (4-1) 6:30 PM MDT
Chris Prosinski, S, Free Agent- Prosinski remains a free agent after playing in the Jaguars first three games before getting released after a hand injury. I think he has a chance at getting signed once healthy.
