Jeremiah Attaochu, OLB, San Diego Chargers (2010-2013)
Jeremiah Attaochu and the San Diego Chargers were pretty powerless to stop the Oakland Raiders passing attack, losing to the Raiders 37-29. Attaochu had just a tackle, and Derek Carr went to town, finishing 24-for-31 with 289 yards and three touchdowns (91.2 QBR).
T.J. Barnes, DT, New York Jets (2008-2012)
T.J. Barnes played in the New York Jets' 30-23 loss to the New England Patriots as a reserve, but did not register any stats.
Mario Butler, CB, Buffalo Bills (2007-2009)
Mario Butler played as a reserve for the Bills in their trip to London to take on the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Bills came back late, but fell to the Jags 34-31. Butler did not record any stats.
Calvin Johnson, WR, Detroit Lions (2004-2006)
The Detroit Lions offense continued to struggle this week as they lost to the Minnesota Vikings 28-19. Calvin Johnson had a good game, though. He finished with five catches for 86 yards and a touchdown, but one of those was a 46-yard catch, meaning on the other four, he only averaged 10 yards per reception. Following the loss, the Lions fired their offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi. Johnson is this week's Top Pro Jacket.
Shaquille Mason, OG, New England Patriots (2011-2014)
Shaq Mason started at left guard for the New England Patriots in their 30-23 victory over the New York Jets. Behind Mason and the offensive line, the Patriots totaled 353 total yards of offense, but they were unable to get anything going in the rushing game (16 rushing yards the whole game).
Derrick Morgan, OLB, Tennessee Titans (2007-2009)
Derrick Morgan and the Tennessee Titans defense did a solid job of slowing down a potentially very dangerous Falcons offense, but were unable to muster up any offense themselves, falling 10-7 to the Dirty Birds. Morgan registered a tackle for loss in the effort.
Daryl Smith, LB, Baltimore Ravens (2000-2003)
Daryl Smith led the Baltimore Ravens defense in their 26-18 loss to the Arizona Cardinals this week. Smith led the Ravens defense in tackles with eight.
Darren Waller, WR, Baltimore Ravens (2011-2014)
Darren Waller played in the Ravens' loss to the Cardinals, but did not record any stats.
Did Not Play
Stephen Hill, WR for the Carolina Panthers, was placed on the IR prior to the start of the season. And DeAndre Smelter, WR for the San Francisco 49ers, was placed on the Non-Football Injury Reserve prior to the season. Andrew Gardner of the Philadelphia Eagles was placed on the injured reserve after suffering a foot injury in Week 3.
Philip Wheeler, in his first game with the Atlanta Falcons, was inactive in order to catch up on the playbook. I would expect him to play next week. Michael Johnson (Cincinnati Bengals), Morgan Burnett (Green Bay Packers), Demaryius Thomas and Vance Walker (Denver Broncos) were all on a bye this week.

- Euclid Cummings, DL, Toronto Argonauts (2009-2013): The Toronto Argonauts were mercilessly slaughtered by the Montreal Allouettes this week 34-2. In the effort, Euclid Cummings registered a tackle.
