It was a pretty uneventful week for former Red Raiders in the NFL between injuries, bye weeks and players in special role positions.
Still, a handful of Red Raiders were instrumental in Week 7 victories:
WR Danny Amendola, St. Louis
Amendola did not play in a 30-20 loss against Green Bay due to a shoulder injury. He could return in the next few weeks.
RB Baron Batch, Pittsburgh
Batch saw very limited playing time for the Steelers in a 24-17 win against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday Night Football. He got two rushing attempts and gained four yards.
WR Michael Crabtree, San Francisco
The 49ers played a very balanced game in a 13-6 win at the Candlestick. Quarterback Alex Smith only completed 14-of-23 passes, but Crabtree caught five of those passes for 31 yards. That includes a long reception of 16 yards.
DE Kenyuta Dawson, Tennessee
Dawson was not on the active roster for the Titans' 35-34 win against Buffalo.
RG Dylan Gandy, Detroit
Gandy played mostly on special teams for the Lions in a 13-7 loss on Monday Night Football. He did not record any stats. The offensive line as a whole helped the Lions to 360 total yards.
CB Joselio Hanson, Oakland
Hanson played in the secondary rotation in the Raiders' 26-23 overtime win against Jacksonville in Oakland. He recorded three assisted tackles and a pass deflection.
QB Graham Harrell, Green Bay
Harrell did not play against the Rams while backing up Packers' starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
S Darcel McBath, San Francisco
McBath was in the 49ers' secondary rotation but he did not record any stats in Thursday's win against the Seahawks.
RG Manny Ramirez, Denever
Ramirez and the Denver Broncos enjoyed a bye week in Week 7.
RG Louis Vasquez, San Diego
Vasquez and the Chargers also enjoyed a Week 7 bye.
WR Wes Welker, New England
Welker started at receiver against the Patriots' bitter rival, the New York Jets. The former Tech star caught six passes for 66 yards, including a long reception of 21 yards. Rob Gronkowski got the ball closer to the endzone though for two touchdowns compared to Welker's zero.
The Patriots defeated the Jets, 26-23, in overtime.
