NFL Rookie Watch: Week 10

Adrian Peterson (Vikings) – Peterson has a partial tear to a ligament in his right knee and will miss at least one week. He finished with 11 carries for 45 yards against the Packers before injuring his knee in the 3rd quarter. Let’s hope he’s back and full strength soon; he’s the only reason to watch the Vikings.

Marshawn Lynch (Bills) – Lynch’s efforts on the touchdown and game-tying 2-point conversion lifted the Bills over the Dolphins and put them right into the playoff picture. Lynch had 61 of the Bills 63 rushing yards. His second effort to reach the ball across the goal line on the 2-point conversion saved the Bills season.

Dwayne Bowe (Chiefs) – Bowe got his second 100-yard game of the season in the Chiefs loss to the Broncos. Bowe had a season high 9 catches and racked up 105 yards.

Leon Hall (Bengals) – Hall became the first rookie to 4 interceptions. He also had 7 tackles as the Bengals showed that they do in fact have a defense beating the Ravens 21-7.

Jon Beason (Panthers) – Seems like the same line every week- 11 tackles…leads team…team loses.

Dwayne Jarrett (Panthers) – He tripled his production with 2 catches against the Falcons. Looks like the Panthers are finally going to throw him into the fire.

James Jones (Packers) – Jones had 3 catches for 62 yards. Jones is 6 yards short of 500 on the season and has really helped Brett Favre spread the ball around.

Selvin Young (Broncos) – Just another Broncos RB that can be plugged into the system. Young had 109 yards on 20 carries. The victory put the Broncos right back in the hunt in the AFC West.
