Week Fourteen brought another snapper injury and an emergency replacement pressed into action. Thomas Hennessy of the Jets suffered an apparent concussion against the Broncos in the first half, forcing tight end Eric Tomlinson to assume the snapper role. Tomlinson did a decent job in relief.
Justin Drescher, who filled in for injured Aaron Brewer in Arizona since Week Five, was released yesterday and Brewer is set to resume snapping duties for the Cardinals.
In college a news, Ike Powell of Auburn will join Tanner Carew of Oregon as the two snappers in the Senior Bowl next month. Both are the top snapping prospects for the Draft.
Four snappers recorded tackles in Week Fourteen, with JJ Jansen (Panthers) and Zak DeOssie (Giants) tallying solo tackles and Hennessy and John Denney (Dolphins) adding assisted tackles.
