Week Sixteen brought another prominent use of an emergency snapper, as Kevin McDermott of the Vikings was injured late in the first half against the Packers. Tight end David Morgan served as the snapper the rest of the game and did well under the circumstances.
The Vikings think that McDermott may be able to return for the playoffs but are expected to add a veteran after a workout today that will include Justin Drescher. Last week, the Rams worked out Jeff Overbaugh and Drew Ferris with some kickers and punters due to an injury to their kicker.
The STATS FCS All-America team was announced this week and includes the best of the FCS long snappers. James Fisher of North Dakota State was the first team snapper, followed by Hunter Winstead (Liberty) and Brandon Godsey (South Dakota). All are seniors.
Four snappers has tackles in punt coverage this week, led by Jonathan Weeks (Texans) who had a solo and assisted tackle and Mike Windt (Chargers), who had two assisted tackles. Josh Harris (Falcons) and Zak DeOssie (Giants) each had a solo tackle.
