Week Five in Review

After a quiet Week Four, things changed at the snapping position and quickly.

It was revealed earlier last week that Jake McQuaide of the Cowboys tore his biceps on his final snap of Week Four. The Cowboys brought in four snappers for tryouts and signed two, Matt Overton and Tucker Addington, to the practice squad. Overton was activated for this week and snapped well after a miscue on his first extra point snap that was snapped too early and prevented the kick. Garrison Sanborn and Antonio Ortiz were the other snappers the Cowboys evaluated.

There will also be a new snapper in Denver next week, as Jacob Bobenmoyer is expected to miss time with a wrist injury and been placed on injured reserve. No snapper has been signed to replace Bobenmoyer as of now, but the team brought in Tucker Bernard, Hunter Bradley Ryan DiSalvo, Mitch Fraboni and Kyle Nelson yesterday and are expected to workout more snappers today. The Broncos previously worked out nine snappers in early August, although none of those tryout players were in the initial workout yesterday.

Before his injury, Bobenmoyer recorded a solo tackle and Matt Orzech of the Rams added two solo tackles.
