D. Colquitt Named AFC Special Teams Player Of Week

#VFL Dustin Colquitt was named the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week.  Colquitt averaged 40.6 yards per punt on five attempts, with four being downed inside the 20-yard line Sunday in Kansas City's beatdown of the division-rival San Diego Chargers. It meant that Philip Rivers had to try and lead his team on long drives, which is part of the reason they only managed to score three points all game.

Worley Signed To Bears Practice Squad

Former Tennessee quarterback Justin Worley has signed with the Chicago Bears and been added to the team's practice squad.  In 2014, Worley started seven games as a senior and had a 62.3 completion percentage, completing 157-of-252 passes for 1,579 yards with 12 touchdowns and eight interceptions. His season came to early end due to a shoulder injury suffered in October.

In his career with the Vols (2011-14) Worley started 17 games, throwing for 3,556 yards and 23 touchdowns.
