As players and coaches get ready for week 10 in the National Football League, six former Knights continue to be key contributors in the second half of the season.
Fullback Bruce Miller (San Francisco) enjoyed his bye week at UCF on Saturday for the Homecoming game against SMU. He will be back in action on Sunday at 4:25 p.m. against the Rams.
Cornerback Asante Samuel (Atlanta) helped lead the Falcons to a close 19-13 win over the Cowboys on Sunday night with three tackles and one pass defended. He also had a crucial 79-yard interception for a touchdown in Atlanta’s tight win over Oakland in Week 6. He is currently fourth in interceptions by active players with 46 for his career.
Wide receiver Brandon Marshall (Chicago) had nine receptions for 122 yards and three touchdowns, including this 39-yard beauty in the Bears’ 51-20 romp over the Titans on Sunday. He continues to rank in the top five in the league in most receiving categories, including fourth in receptions (59), third in receiving touchdowns (7) and second in receiving yards (797) and yards per game (99.6).
Strong safety Atari Bigby (San Diego) continues to make big plays on the field in his starting role with the Chargers. Last week, he had eight tackles vs. the Chiefs and in Week 8, he had 10 stops and one pass defended in the tight game against the Browns.
Cornerback Josh Robinson’s (Minnesota) playing time continues to increase with the Vikings. In the past four weeks, he has averaged three tackles per game against Washington (10/14), Arizona (10/21), Tampa Bay (10/25) and Seattle (11/4)
