Pennington nominated for FedEx award

Quarterbacks AARON BROOKS of the New Orleans Saints, PEYTON MANNING of the Indianapolis Colts and CHAD PENNINGTON of the New York Jets are the finalists for FedEx Express NFL Player of the Week honors for games played on September 19-20.

Fans can vote for one player on from Tuesday morning through noon on Thursday to determine the FedEx Player of the Week. The winner will be announced Thursday on and Friday in USA Today.

Fans will be voting for more than their favorite player. Along with the award, FedEx will donate $5,000 every week to the local children's hospital in each winning market. The children's hospitals in the two season-long winner's markets, announced at this year's Super Bowl, will be awarded $25,000 each. That means that FedEx will deliver nearly $250,000 to local children's hospitals around the country.
