Here’s how players from Snohomish County fared during Week 11 of the NFL season:

Jake Luton

— This week: Making his third straight start at quarterback for the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Marysville Pilchuck alum had a rough go against the undefeated Pittsburgh Steelers. Luton completed just 16 of 37 passes for 151 yards, and he was picked off four times while failing to find the end zone in a 27-3 loss.

— Season: Luton is 60-for-110 for 624 yards with two touchdowns and six interceptions, which equates to a passer rating of 54.5. No. 1 quarterback Gardner Minshew II is reportedly near recovery from his thumb injury, and Jaguars coach Doug Marrone said Monday he did not know who would start Sunday when 1-9 Jacksonville hosts the Cleveland Browns.

Myles Gaskin

— This week: The Lynnwood native and Miami Dolphins running back, who attended O’Dea High School, remained on injured reserve, missing his third straight game as the Dolphins lost 20-13 on the road against the Denver Broncos.

— Season: Gaskin was required to spend a minimum of three weeks on injured reserve, and he was expected to have recovered from his sprained knee by the time he was eligible to return from IR this week. With Salvon Ahmed’s 43 yards on 12 carries leading the Dolphins in rushing against the Broncos, Gaskin has a good chance of reclaiming his starting spot when 6-4 Miami hits the road to face the winless New York Jets on Sunday. Gaskin has 387 yards on 100 carries with two touchdowns, as well as 30 catches for 198 yards, in seven games this season.

Jacob Eason

— This week: The Lake Stevens High School graduate and Indianapolis Colts quarterback was not active for the Colts’ 34-31 overtime victory over the Green Bay Packers.

— Season: Eason has yet to be active on game day for the 7-3 Colts, who host the Tennessee Titans on Sunday with Philip Rivers and Jacoby Brissett projected to be the QBs.

KeiVarae Russell

— This week: The Mariner High School alum and Green Bay Packers cornerback was not elevated from the practice squad as the Packers lost 34-31 in overtime to the Indianapolis Colts.

— Season: Russell, who’s been on Green Bay’s practice squad since Oct. 28, was elevated from the practice squad for one game, during which he appeared on seven special teams snaps and did not record a stat for the 7-3 Packers.

Devante Downs

— This week: The linebacker from Mountlake Terrace High School and his New York Giants teammates had a bye.

— Season: Downs has started six of 10 games for the 3-7 Giants, totalling 25 tackles (19 solo, six assisted) along with one pass defensed, one fumble recovered and one quarterback hit.
