NFL Cougar Highlights: Week 16

HIS QUEST FOR the first 1,000 yard rushing season of his career will have to wait one more week, as Chris Ivory was held to just 38 yards by New England on Sunday –11 yards shy of the four-figure milestone.

The former Cougar sustained a knee injury that sent him to the locker room before halftime, but he returned to the field in the third quarter.

Ivory also caught four passes for 4 yards on 4 targets in the Jets’ 26-20 overtime victory against the Patriots.
