Week Seventeen, which usually marks the end of the NFL regular season, is complete and just one week of the regular season remains. However, COVID continues to impact many teams and snappers are no exception.
The Chargers added Beau Brinkley to its practice squad but just released him after Matt Overton snapped this weekend. The Colts used veteran Kyle Nelson this week after losing Luke Rhodes to the COVID list. Nelson was signed after a workout that also included Trey Harper in his first NFL tryout, along with Brian Khoury and Garrison Sanborn. Rhodes should be back this week as Nelson was released yesterday. Colin Holba was added to the Bengals practice squad, likely as a potential emergency replacement for Clark Harris. Harris did snap in his 200th game for the Bengals Sunday. Finally, the Rams released Carson Tinker from its practice squad after being on the team on and off the last few weeks.
Five snappers recorded tackles in punt coverage this week. Aaron Brewer (Cardinals) and Nick Moore (Ravens) had solo tackles, while client Patrick Scales (Bears), Thomas Hennessy (Jets) and Jon Weeks (Texans) recorded assists.
