Justin Jackson finally touched the ball; Anthony Walker Jr. overcame an injury, and more ex-Wildcats continued to fight for their spots in the NFL.

Here’s how they fared the past two weeks:

Justin Jackson: Los Angeles Chargers

Jackson recorded his first stats of the season in Sunday’s win over the Browns. He rushed 3 attempts for 4 yards and had 1 reception for 8 yards. While his stats did not have the biggest impact, he is progressing and finally getting field time.

Anthony Walker Jr.: Indianapolis Colts

Walker saw minimal snaps in the Week 5 matchup against the Patriots after leaving the game early with a possible concussion. As a result, he only played 20 percent of the defensive snaps but was still able to record three total tackles.

He bounced back in Week 6 against the Jets and played 85 percent of all defensive snaps and 28 percent of all special teams snaps, charting six total tackles. While he is still listed as questionable, he appears to be back to full strength.

Sherrick McManis: Chicago Bears

Chicago has continued to use McManis sparingly on defense. In the Week 6 matchup against the Dolphins, he only saw two of the team’s 78 defensive snaps. McManis has had a presence on special teams and played 75 percent of the special teams snaps Sunday but failed to record any stats on the day.

Dean Lowry: Green Bay Packers

Lowry recorded 2 tackles in the last-second win over San Francisco Monday night. His stats this week were in line with the small contributions he has had all season long.

Joe Jones: Denver Broncos

After having one tackle against the Jets in Week 5, Jones failed to record any stats against the Rams Sunday.

Austin Carr: New Orleans Saints

In Week 5, Carr was targeted twice and caught both balls for 17 yards on the day, which was a major improvement from not being targeted once the week before. The Saints had their bye in Week 6.

Ifeadi Odenigbo: Arizona Cardinals

Odenigbo finally saw the field in Week Five and assisted on one tackle in the win over San Francisco. It was the first action he has seen all season.

Brian Peters, Ibraheim Campbell, Garrett Dickerson and Trevor Siemian

All four players have yet to see a snap in October, mostly because they sit farther down on the depth chart and will most likely not see the field, barring a major development.
