Quarterback 

Jake Luton (2017-19) - Jacksonville Jaguars - Second String

-> After starting the past three games for Jacksonville, head coach Doug Marrone made a quarterback change midweek and went with Mike Glennon at QB. The end result didn't change for the Jags as they lost their 10th straight game, but with Glennon playing well and Gardner Minshew II potentially back soon, Luton's starting reign in Jacksonville may be over.

Sean Mannion (2010-14) - Minnesota Vikings - Second String

Matt Moore (2005-06) - Kansas City Chiefs - Practice Squad

Running Back

Ryan Nall (2014-17) - Chicago Bears - Second/Third String

-> With starting running back David Montgomery back in the fold, Nall was pushed down the depth chart slightly, but he was still able to make an impact against Green Bay, securing his only target for 10 yards. Nall has shown a lot amount of ability when it comes to being a receiving back, so I would imagine he'll continue to see a few targets per game.

Artavis Pierce (2016-19 - Chicago Bears - Fourth String

-> Pierce did not play in Chicago's 41-25 loss to Green Bay.

Wide Receiver

Brandin Cooks (2011-13) - Houston Texans - First String

-> In Houston's 41-25 win over Detroit, Cooks hauled in all five of his targets for 85 yards. Will Fuller V has been Deshaun Watson's primary target in Houston, but he was just handed down a season-finishing suspension from the NFL, which would mean Cooks would be the recipient of nearly all the targets in the passing game. It's unclear whether or not Fuller will be able to appeal his suspension, but if not, Cooks will be very, very busy down the stretch run.

Isaiah Hodgins (2017-19) - Buffalo Bills - Short Term IR

-> Hodgins was designated to return from short-term injured reserve last week and could be primed to join the active roster here in the next two weeks. Hodgins has spent nearly the entire season on short-term IR with a shoulder injury, so seeing him make progress and get closer to making his debut is great news.

Victor Bolden Jr. (2013-2016) - Detroit Lions - Practice Squad

Tight End

Noah Togiai (2015-19) - Indianapolis Colts - Fourth String

-> Togiai (coach's decision) didn't play in the Colts' 45-26 loss to Tennessee.

Offensive Line 

Mike Remmers (2007-11) - Kansas City Chiefs - First String

Isaac Seumalo (2011-15) - Philadelphia Eagles - First String

Josh Andrews (2009-14) - New York Jets - Second String

Sean Harlow (2013-16) - Atlanta Falcons - Practice Squad

Blake Brandel (2015-19) - Minnesota Vikings - Practice Squad

Defensive Line

Kyle Peko (2015) - Denver Broncos - COVID-19 Opt-Out

-> Peko has chosen to opt-out of the 2020 NFL season for COVID-19 concerns.

Secondary 

Steven Nelson (2013-2014) - Pittsburgh Steelers - First String

-> Nelson and the Steelers are supposed to play Baltimore on Wednesday as of writing this story, but it's still very much in the air with COVID-19 concerns.

Jordan Poyer (2009-12) - Buffalo Bills - First String

-> In Buffalo's 27-17 win over Los Angeles, Poyer finished with 10 tackles and half a tackle for loss.

Punter

Johnny Hekker (2009-12) - Los Angeles Rams - First String

-> In Los Angeles' 23-20 loss to San Francisco, Hekker punted seven times for 343 yards. He landed three inside the 20, averaged 49 yards per punt, and had a long of 62 on the day.
