How local NFL products fared in Week 10

Devante Downs, Jake Luton and KeiVarae Russell all saw action this past weekend.

Here’s how players from Snohomish County fared during Week 10 of the NFL season:

Devante Downs

— This week: The Mountlake Terrace High School graduate returned to the New York Giants’ starting lineup at weak-side linebacker this week after coming off the bench last week, and although he appeared on just 34% of the Giants’ defensive snaps he still had five solo tackles in New York’s 27-17 victory at Philadelphia on Sunday. Downs also appeared on 72% of the Giants’ special teams snaps.

— Season: Downs has started six of 10 games for the 3-7 Giants. He ranks 11th on the team with 25 tackles (19 solo, six assisted) and has chipped in with one pass defensed, one fumble recovered and one quarterback hit.

Jake Luton

— This week: Making his second consecutive start at quarterback for the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Marysville Pilchuck High School grad wasn’t quite as sharp as he was in his debut, going 18-for-35 for 169 yards with one touchdown and one interception in the Jaguars’ 24-20 loss at Green Bay on Sunday.

— Season: In his two starts Luton is 44-for-73 for 473 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions, which equates to a 77.0 quarterback rating. Gardner Minshew II is not expected to return from his thumb injury this week, meaning Luton is in line for another start when 1-8 Jacksonville hosts the undefeated Pittsburgh Steelers this Sunday.

KeiVarae Russell

— This week: The Mariner High School product was elevated from the practice squad for Green Bay’s 24-20 victory Sunday over Jacksonville. Although the cornerback didn’t appear on any defensive plays, he did see seven snaps on special teams. Russell did not record a stat.

— Season: This was Russell’s first action of the season for the 7-2 Packers. Russell now reverts to Green Bay’s practice squad, and he can be activated from the practice squad one more time this season before having to be signed to the Packers’ 53-man roster.

Jacob Eason

— This week: The Lake Stevens High School grad and Indianapolis Colts quarterback was inactive for the Colts’ 34-17 victory at Tennessee on Thursday.

— Season: Eason still has not been active for a game this season for the 6-3 Colts as he sits behind Philip Rivers and Jacoby Brissett.

Myles Gaskin

— This week: The Lynnwood native and O’Dea High School product missed his second straight game as he remains on injured reserve because of a knee sprain. The running back therefore had to watch as the host Miami Dolphins beat the Los Angeles Chargers 29-21.

— Season: Gaskin had claimed the starting job before getting injured, gaining 387 yards on 100 carries with two touchdowns while also catching 30 passes for 198 yards. However, with former University of Washington teammate Salvon Ahmed having a good game Sunday (21 carries, 85 yards, one TD) for the 6-3 Dolphins, will Gaskin get his starting job back when he’s eligible to return from IR in two weeks?
