Bearcats in the NFL Week 2 roundup

| No TrackBacks

--- TRENT COLE: Cole didn't come away with a sack as he did in the opener, but was disruptive in the pass rush in a victory against Detroit. 

He had four tackles, a pass defensed and QB hit.

--- MARDY GILYARD: Gilyard is still without his first career catch, but is entrenched as the starting kick returner. He had five returns for an avearage of 23.2 yards and long of 30 in a 16-14 loss to Oakland.

The most notable element to the game, though, was his Welcome to the NFL moment on a kick return where he got absolutely leveled. I couldn't find any video of it on YouTube, which is probably a good thing.

--- BRENT CELEK: Celek had a pretty mundane week for the Eagles. He caught three passes for 27 yards in the win against Detroit. .

--- BRANDON UNDERWOOD: Underwood was among the inactives for the Green Bay Packers.

--- RICARDO MATHEWS: Mathews was inactive for Indianapolis.  

--- JEFF LINKENBACH: Linkenbach was active, but did not start for the Colts. As long as Charlie Johnson is healthy, he will continue to receive the majority of the snaps at LT.

--- MIKE WRIGHT: Wright moved into a sub-rusher role, giving his DE spot to 2009 second-round pick Ron Brace to give New England a heavier look.

Wright had one QB hit. 

--- KEVIN HUBER: Huber had a good day for the Bengals, kicking eight times for a 44-yard average. His 59-yard boot out of his end zone created a serious field flip in a game of field position with the Ravens.

Marvin Lewis had this to say about Huber:

 "I thought Kevin had a couple good, backed-up punts, but we had a couple punts in the plus-50 area where we can still do better at, and we've got to keep working at that. He's good enough to make those harder plays for them. We kind of changed Kevin's routine in practice last year, and since then he's really benefitted from it. He's (done) everything we expected him to do."


--- HARUKI NAKAMURA: He had a quiet game in his latest return to Cincinnati. He managed one tackle in the 15-10 loss to the Bengals.
