Bearcats in the NFL: Week 4 roundup

| No TrackBacks

No major plays for the UC products this week, but it was a good one for Alex Daniels, who found his way onto a practice squad.

Here's a look at how some UC products fared during Week 4.

--- ALEX DANIELS: Daniels has a new home. He was signed as a member of the Dallas Cowboys practice squad this week.

It sounds like he will be working as a fullback there. But, regardless, great news for Daniels who recently accepted an injury settlement from the Raiders after going undrafted.

--- TRENT COLE: Cole didn't have quite the monster week he did in Week 3, but was solid. He had four tackles, including a tackle for loss in the Eagles 17-12 loss to Washington.

--- MARDY GILYARD: One week after grabbing his first career reception, Gilyard added two more in St. Louis' surprise 20-3 victory against Seattle.

He had two receptions for 13 yards and added two kick returns for 22 yards.      

--- BRENT CELEK: Not surprisingly, Celek benefitted from the return of close friend Kevin Kolb at QB. Celek was targeted seven times and caught his first touchdown of the season.

His stock is up, certainly until Mike Vick returns.

He caught three passes for 27 yards with the score.   

--- BRANDON UNDERWOOD: Underwood, in just his second game back from injury, was relatively unnoticed with two tackles in Green Bay's 28-26 victory against Detroit.

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

--- JEFF LINKENBACH: Some more honros came the way of Linkenbach. Curt Curtis of the Indy Star wrote this in depth blog post about the play of Linkenbach.

Coach Jim Caldwell had this to say about how Linkenbach played:

"He hung in there," Caldwell said of Linkenbach's showing in Denver. "He played tough, he's a scrappy guy."

Linkenbach didn't start against Jacksonville with the return of Charlie Johnson.

--- MIKE WRIGHT: Wright spent most of his night plugging the middle on the defensive line with DT Vince Wilfork moved to the end in New England's rout of Miami. 

It worked as Wright managed a sack of Chad Henne. He also had a pass defense.  

--- KEVIN HUBER: Huber had an average day for the Bengals. He punted three times for an average of 38.6 yards. His long was 50. 

--- HARUKI NAKAMURA: Nakamura continues to do a diary during his time with the Ravens for the Carroll County Times. It's not exactly mind-bending stuff, but it's hearing from Haruki.

He had one tackle in Baltimore's win at Pittsburgh.
