Week 6 of the NFL season has come and gone, and it seemed like more NFL players were injured this past weekend than any of the previous weeks. Some of those unfortunately were former Bama stand outs, Kenyan Drake, and Landon Collins. Kenyan Drake will be back in a few weeks, but Landon will be sidelined the rest of the year with an Achilles injury. While those gentlemen will be missing, there are still plenty of Bama athletes who had big games this past weekend. Let’s take a look at a few of those guys.
JULIO JONES: 8 REC 97 YDS
Julio Jones continues to prove he is the best WR in the league as he continues to get doubled up, and still continues to make the plays.
DERRICK HENRY: 20 CAR 75 YDS 1 TD
Even though Henry was slowed down last week, he continues to be in my opinion the best back in the league. At nearly 240 LBS, he’s tough to bring down.
Damien Harris: 10 CAR 58 YDS
While Harris numbers don’t look all that impressive, what is impressive is the nearly 6 yards a carry. Harris continues to improve and may very well become the vocal point of the Patriots offense with the QB play for the Pats being horrendous the past few weeks.
Quinnen Williams: 3 SOLO 1 AST 1 TFL, 1 SACK, 3 QB HITS
I normally don’t speak too often on the defensive guys, but I’ll say this about Q, weather he stays with the Jets, or traded away, he’s going to be a force an opposing QB is going to have to deal with for a long time.
Jonathan Allen: 2 SOLO 1 TFL SAFETY
Allen continues to be a force for the Washington Football Team ( it’s so weird saying that). Allen recorded his first safety of the year, and he and Daron Payne make a great combo on that D-line.
