Pro Frogs: Collier shines on Monday night, Gladney continues solid play

Plenty of Horned Frogs in action across last week’s NFL slate.

Jason Verrett, CB, San Francisco 49ers

Richard Sherman returned to the Niners Sunday, moving JV from field to boundary corner. It didn’t seem to bother him one bit, as he had a big day teaming up with Sherman, collecting five tackles as the 49ers got a field goal late to beat the Rams 23-20.

He also joined SF’s Unscripted Podcast for an interview.

And had a really nice article written about his healthy season, too, which included this quote:

“Jason Verrett is one of the comeback stories of the season,” wrote Sam Monson of Pro Football Focus. “He had played just four snaps on defense since the beginning of the 2018 season, and 327 since the start of 2016, but he has surpassed that total this year alone while establishing himself as one of the best cover guys in the league.”

Ben Banogu, DE, Indianapolis Colts

Banogu was a healthy scratch again, as the Colts got torched by the Titans. This doesn’t give me much hope that he has a future in Indy:

Maybe the best thing for him is to get released and get a fresh start somewhere else.

Joey Hunt, C, Indianapolis Colts

Hunt was elevated to the active roster with the Colts down a center.

Ross Blacklock, DT, Houston Texans

Blacklock had a nice game in the Texans win over the Lions, with the broadcasters shouting him out multiple times. He had two tackles on the day, including this stuff:

L.J. Collier, DE, Seattle Seahawks

LJ got a shoutout from Mina Kimes so I would say he had a good night on Monday Night Football.

He had three tackles and a sack in Seattle’s win at Philadelphia.

Andy Dalton, QB, Dallas Cowboys

Skip still believes in him, but I don’t know if that helps:

Dallas lost to the Washington Football team 41-16.

I blame Zeke.

Sewo Olonilua, RB, Dallas Cowboys

Practice Squad.

Jeff Gladney, CB, Minnesota Vikings

Jeff had another solid day as the Vikings held off the Carolina Panthers (and Matt Rhule) for a 28-27 win. With six tackles, including a tackle for loss, he continues to improve each week and is making a name for himself as a player always around the ball:

He’s also consistently earning praise from outsiders:

Jerry Hughes, DE, Buffalo Bills

Hughes had a really great game in the Bills win over the Chargers, despite dealing with a back injury. The veteran had four tackles, a tackle for loss, half a sack, and a pair of QB hits, ever so kindly introducing himself to rookie Justin Hebert.

Joe Noteboom, OL, Los Angeles Rams

Noteboom was solid in his second consecutive start at LT in place of veteran Andrew Whitworth. But the Rams were shocked by the 49ers, losing 23-20 on a late field goal.

Matt Pryor, OG/OT, Philadelphia Eagles

Jamal Adams and the Seahawks ate Monday night, sacking Carson Wentz five times on their way to a win over the Eagles. Pryor was fine in his role starting on the offensive line, but the unit as a whole didn’t do much to get the running game going. Some of the pressures could be leveled on Wentz’s shoulders, as he has a habit of holding onto the ball for too long and didn’t show much presence in the pocket — albeit, under duress most of the evenings.

Jalen Reagor, WR, Philadelphia Eagles

Carson Wentz is terrible. Watching (part of) the Monday Night game, I really felt for Reag. He got stuck with a fourth string QB his sophomore year, a freshman QB as a junior, and now this hot garbage in Philly to start his pro career.

Reagor was fine against the Seahawks; he was targeted seven times, made three catches — but had just 11 yards. There was a catchable ball in the end zone that he seemed to give up on a bit; it certainly wasn’t a great throw, but even the announcers said it was a play he should make. He has certainly shown flashes, but until the Eagles get a better QB — or Wentz plays like he did as a rookie — it’s hard to expect much out of Reag.

Austin Schlottmann, OG/C, Denver Broncos

Schlottmann had one special teams snap in the Broncos’ loss to New Orleans. That means he played more snaps than Denver had QBs on its roster.

Vernon Scott, S, Green Bay Packers

Vernon had a couple of special teams tackles for the Pack against the Bears on Sunday Night Football.

Ty Summers, LB, Green Bay Packers

Summers was relegated to special teams Sunday, where he did not record a stat.

Halapoulivaati Vaitai, OT, Detroit Lions

Poor Big V... back on the injury list with the foot problem that has plagued him all year. Whether he will be activated again this season remains to be seen.

Marshall Newhouse, OT, Tennessee Titans

Newhouse was signed to the Titans practice squad, giving him a shot to revive his career.
