There have been a few injuries to NFL Vols this season and this week saw another name added to the list:
Rookie Mychal Rivera took a hard hit to the head from Tennessee safety Michael Griffin (who was suspended for one game for his actions)
Rivera was down on the field for a few minutes but walked off on his own. He suffered a concussion on the play

  • In the Cowboys 24-21 victory over the New York Giants, Jason Witten capitalized on two of his four receptions taking them to the house. 
  • This marks the second time this season that Witten has nabbed two TDs in a game, the other also coming against the Giants in the season opener. 
  • Witten has recorded multiple TD games just four times in his career, all against NFC East rivals as the previous two were against Philadelphia in 2010 and 2004. 
  • Witten now has 857 catches in his 11-season NFL career, second most among NFL tight ends, 19th most all-time. He needs four catches next Sunday to pass Muhsin Muhammad for 18th place and six catches to move past Jimmy Smith into 17th place this weekend.

  • Justin Hunter began his career with the Titans reeling in two passes in two weeks, both for touchdowns. 
  • Since then, Hunter has been quiet on the field, and was unsure if he would play last weekend after suffering a concussion in Week 11. 
  • But Hunter played, and had a breakout game for the Titans helping them past Oakland on the road, 23-19. 
  • Hunter finished with a team-high six catches for 109 yards including a 54 yard TD
The Tennessean: Hunter has breakout game
