Week Five was an uneventful one at the snapping position. In fact, Charley Hughlett of the Browns was the only snapper to record a tackle in punt coverage with an assisted tackle.
There were two tryouts last week as teams continue to keep their emergency lists up to date in case of injury or performance issues. Jon Akemon worked out with the Chiefs and client Clint Gresham along with Thomas Gafford had workouts with the Lions.
In Week Six, special teams coach Joe DeCamillis of the Broncos will serve as head coach for Gary Kubiak, who is recovering from a health issue and will miss the game.

Week Four is complete and brought the first snapping change. Aaron Brewer snapped for the Cardinals after replacing rookie Kameron Canaday. Brewer had an uneventful day, which is just the Cardinals were looking for.

As expected, the first snapping change of the year occurred in Arizona. The Cardinals waived rookie Kameron Canaday after a rough three weeks and will sign veteran Aaron Brewer to replace him.
Brewer, was in training camp with the Chicago Bears, worked out today along with Tyler Ott, who was in camp with the Giants.
Week Three of the NFL is complete and the Cardinals long snapping situation is front and center again as rookie Kameron Canaday struggled this week. Although the Cardinals indicated they would stick by him last week, it appears they may look at other snappers perhaps as early as today.
