Nate Washington suffered an injury in this one, but not before he reached 47 snaps. That allowed Damian Williams to pace the wide receivers with 55 snaps played. Williams has now matched or played more snaps than Washington in three of the team’s last four games. Lavelle Hawkins chipped in with 34, while Donnie Avery handled nine and Marc Mariani eight. The tight ends were led by Craig Stevens’ 35-snap day. Jared Cook was in on 30 plays and Daniel Graham saw 10. Chris Johnson’s 53 snaps easily paced the running backs, as Javon Ringer was in on only 14 plays. Jamie Harper saw six snaps after seeing a total of seven over the team’s last six games.
I would really like to see more of Donnie Avery. The only play I noticed him out there was a play where pass interference should have been called because the defender clearly held him as he ran past. He is the only guy on the team that can do that. Why isn't he on the field more?
