The Washington State great was a Sunday scratch for the second consecutive week, presumably still hobbled by a bum hammy. That’s music to the ears of the Dolphins’ rookie grabman, Jarvis Landry. Miami’s second-round pick from LSU has made the most of Gibson’s absence, pulling in 10 receptions and scoring a touchdown the past two games. Just like that, Landry has become — statistically — Miami’s second-most productive receiver.
Sidelined with a season-ending knee injury in week seven last year, Gibson was on pace to put up personal-best receiving numbers, booking 30 catches for 326 yards and 3 touchdowns before the injury. Not so this season: the Puyallup native has made just 7 catches for 65 yards in the current campaign.
Here’s how all the NFL Cougs performed in week 7:
Husain Abdullah, S, Kansas City, 6th season: Tallied six tackles (5 solo) in the Chiefs’ 23-20 win against San Diego.
Deone Bucannon, S, Arizona, Rookie: Posted two solo tackles in the Cardinals’ 24-13 defeat of Oakland.
Jed Collins, FB, Detroit, 5th season: No recorded stats from the Lions’ 24-23 victory against New Orleans.
John Fullington, T, San Francisco, rookie: Did not play; assigned to the 49ers’ practice squad.
Brandon Gibson, WR, Miami, 6th season: Declared inactive with a bum hamstring for the Dolphins’ 27-14 victory against Chicago.
Chris Ivory, RB, New York Jets, 5th season: Rushed the ball 21 times for 107 yards—including a 1-yard touchdown plunge—and caught 4 passes for 18 yards in the Jets’ 27-25 loss to New England on Thursday.
Travis Long, LB, Philadelphia, 1st year: Did not play; on injured reserve.
Ropati Pitoitua, DE, Tennessee, 6th season: Did not play, the Tacoma native had surgery earlier this week on a broken finger suffered in week 6.
Jeff Tuel, QB, Buffalo, 2nd season: Did not play; assigned to the Bills’ practice squad.
Marquess Wilson, WR, Chicago, 2nd season: Did not play; on injured reserve with a designation to return. Wilson became eligible to practice with the team last Wednesday and can suit up for the Bears in week 10.
