Ex-Wolverines in the NFL: Week 12

Catch up with all your favorite ex-Wolverines in the NFL through Week 12 of the regular season. This week watched Denard throw a NFL pass, Henne throw no interceptions, and Brady throw another historic game.

Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports

Jay Feely (K, Undrafted in 1999, Arizona Cardinals):

The Cardinals absolutely demolished the Colts on Sunday, and with the win, Arizona is in great position in the NFL Wild Card race. Feely continued to help his team with solid play; however, his 17 straight field goals streak ended in the first quarter with a block on a 28 yard attempt. On the day, he finished with 16 points via four field goals (48, 50, 21, and 25 yards, respectively) and four extra points.

Kenny Demens (ILB, Undrafted in 2013, Arizona Cardinals):

Demens is on the practice squad in Arizona.

Alan Branch (DT, 33rd in 2007 to Cardinals, Buffalo Bills):

Buffalo had their bye this week.

Craig Roh (DE, Undrafted in 2013, Carolina Panthers):

Roh is on the practice squad in Carolina.

Tim Jamison (DE, Undrafted in 2009, Houston Texans):

Jamison was inactive this week.

Chad Henne (QB, 57th in 2008 to Dolphins, Jacksonville Jaguars):

Henne helped the Jags gain their second victory this season by playing "as he always does, completing an efficient 23-of-32 passes for 239 yards, but never really [getting] points on the scoreboard." It isn't difficult to beat the lowly Texans these days, but Jacksonville will take what they can get during this mess of a season. It's good to see Henne not turning the ball over even if he's not scoring.

Denard Robinson (WR, 135th in 2013 to Jaguars, Jacksonville Jaguars):

Robinson continues to barely play for the struggling Jaguars as he was on the field for only two snaps on Sunday. However, he did attempt one pass on a direct snap but the throw fell incomplete. Big Cat Country had this to say regarding Denard's minimal action: "The most interesting [snap count situation for the running backs] has been the sheer lack of Denard Robinson, though when he did get his shot a few weeks ago he fumbled the ball. I think it's clear he's still being groomed for the RB position."

Junior Hemingway (WR, 238th in 2012 to Chiefs, Kansas City Chiefs):

In the Chiefs' shootout loss to the Chargers, Hemingway was involved in one play, the final play of the game. He received a lateral during KC's last effort but fumbled the ball away.

Jordan Kovacs (S, Undrafted in 2013, Miami Dolphins):

Kovacs is on the practice squad in Miami.

Tom Brady (QB, 199th in 2000 to Patriots, New England Patriots):

Tom Brady did his best rendition of Tom Brady on Sunday night as he led the Patriots back from a 24-0 halftime deficit to an overtime victory. Brady finished the game with a solid stat sheet: 34 for 50 for 344 yards and three touchdowns. However, Brady also fumbled twice with one being recovered and turned into seven points for the Broncos. Nevertheless, Pats Pulpit summed up Tom's performance best: "It was an amazing comeback by Tom Brady, who outplayed Peyton Manning in what will be without a doubt one of the most memorable games of their rivalry."

Ryan Mundy (S, 194th in 2008 to Steelers, New York Giants):

Mundy's playing time is still diminishing (17 defensive snaps this week), but he recorded two solo tackles with two assists with the limited time on Sunday. Unfortunately, it seems like most of that time came following an injury to a Giants cornerback and during the Cowboys' game-winning drive in the fourth quarter. It'll be interesting to see what Mundy's role is moving forward.

David Harris (ILB, 47th in 2007 to Jets, New York Jets):

The Jets lost an ugly one on Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens by a score of 19-3. In the game, Harris recorded five solo tackles with three assists. Following the loss, he had this to say in regards to New York's diminishing playoff chances: "We're in five one-week seasons. It's still not over."

William Campbell (RG, 178th in 2013 to Jets, New York Jets):

Campbell was inactive this week.

Jason Avant (WR, 109th in 2006 to Eagles, Philadelphia Eagles):

Philadelphia had their bye this week.

Brandon Graham (LB, 13th in 2010 to Eagles, Philadelphia Eagles):

Philadelphia had their bye this week.

LaMarr Woodley (OLB, 46th in 2007 to Steelers, Pittsburgh Steelers):

Woodley was inactive again this week due to a calf injury, and he'll only be back to play in the Steelers Thursday Night game against the Ravens if he can practice today.

Charles Woodson (FS, 4th in 1998 to Raiders, Oakland Raiders):

Woodson and the rest of Oakland's secondary failed to stop the Titans on a six-minute, game-winning touchdown drive that ended with 10 seconds left in the game. Specifically, Charles gave up a reception on third and six from Oakland's 19-yard line. If he makes the play, the Titans likely kick a game-tying field goal and the Raiders have a chance to win in overtime. However, that didn't happen and Woodson had this to say on the disappointing loss that eliminated Oakland from playoff contention:

"We let a team go down late in the game and score a touchdown. In order to be one of those [playoff] teams, that you can't do. And we did."

Jonathan Goodwin (C, 154th in 2002 to Jets, San Francisco 49ers):

Goodwin helped the 49ers offense easily handle the Redskins defense last night on Monday Night Football in a 27-6 victory. After a couple weeks of low offensive success and two straight losses, the primetime win has to have Goodwin and company happy.

Mario Manningham (WR, 95th in 2008 to Giants, San Francisco 49ers):

Since coming back two weeks ago, Manningham hasn't done much but having a solid option at the second receiver position probably means more to the 49ers than output at this point. On MNF, Mario caught four passes for 45 yards, and I fully expect his role to increase as he regains his football shape.

Jake Long (LT, 1st in 2008 to Dolphins, St. Louis Rams):

There are no complaints coming out of St. Louis this week as the Rams demolished the Chicago Bears on Sunday behind 258 total yards rushing with 8.9 yards per attempt. Long and the rest of the offensive line seemed to play their part with minimal issues this week, which is a step in the right direction after some major problems with Jake earlier this year.

Patrick Omameh (G, Undrafted in 2013, Tampa Bay Buccaneers):

Omameh was inactive for the sixth straight week.

Mike Martin (DT, 82nd in 2012 to Titans, Tennessee Titans):

Martin was inactive this week.
