NFL Roundup: Brandon Weeden’s Part in the Colin Kaepernick Saga



Week 6 of NFL action has come and gone and several former Cowboys were in action. Let’s take a look.

Brandon Weeden

The former OSU quarterback signed on with the Tennessee Titans after Marcus Mariota’s hamstring injury two weeks ago. He’s yet to record a stat for Tennessee but the record-setting QB has seen his name in the news for other reasons. Former San Franciso 49er, Colin Kaepernick has filed a law suit against the NFL for collusion and according to a report by Pro Football Talk, Weeden’s signing by the Titans was the final straw.

The team worked out Weeden as well as Matt Barkley, Matt McGloin and T.J. Yates but Kaepernick did not receive an invite. Both the Seattle Seahawks and the Baltimore Ravens showed interest in Kaepernick but he’s yet to receive an offer since opting out of his contract with the 49ers following last season. He sparked a controversial movement when he began taking a knee during the national anthem to protest police brutality last season.

Emmanuel Ogbah

The former Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year tallied two total tackles as the Browns fell 33-17 on the road to the Houston Texans. He was able to play in front of his home crowd for the first time as a pro.

Lane Taylor

The Packers makeshift offensive line again struggled to protect Aaron Rodgers, and this time it cost them. Rogers will undergo surgery to repair a broken collarbone he suffered during a rough hit against the Vikings and the future Hall of Famer could miss the rest of the season.

Taylor also suffered an apparent leg injury and was carted off the field and did not return.

Vincent Taylor

The rookie saw his workload decrease with the return of Jordan Phillips from injury. Taylor saw the fewest snaps of the Dolphins’ d-tackles (nine) behind Ndamukong Suh (47), Phillips (21) and fellow rookie Davon Godchaux (21). Taylor did not record any stats.

Tyler Patmon

The fourth-year defensive back signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars this past summer and has seen sparing snaps. Patmon saw time on special teams in kick coverage in the Jaugars’ 27-17 loss to the Los Angeles Rams.

Russell Okung

The first-year Charger helped keep Philip Rivers’ jersey as clean as about any in the league. Rivers was sacked once but was able to captain the Chargers to their second win in as many weeks.

Dez Bryant and Dan Bailey

The Cowboys were on a bye week and will return to action against the San Francisco 49ers on October 22.
