This week marked a couple of first in the professional careers of a few of our Wildcats. Let’s start with the not so great news, Wesley Woodyard played his first game of his career without recording at least an assists on a tackle or pass deflection. It appears the veteran linebacker in his 12th year is coming near to the end of his NFL career. Now the positives, Benny Snell rushed for his first time in the NFL and it was a great one. He netted 23 yards on the run and looked really good doing it. With James Conner dealing with a groin issue, it’s possible Snell may see an increase in workload soon. Lonnie Johnson and Mike Edwards made their first career NFL starts this week and they both ended up with 3 tackles, not bad for the amount of opportunities they had! Danny Trevathan looked great in the Bears win totaling 12 tackles, which is nothing new for the veteran linebacker who just so happens to be in a contract year. Get that $$$! Overall, it was a pretty good week for our guys and hopefully we are seeing a trend with our first year players that includes more playing time and increased production!
Our MVP selections for the week are:
Offense – Benny Snell – Great start to his career!
Defense – Danny Trevathan – 12 Tackles was double of any other Wildcat and he helped his team win
