Here’s how players from Snohomish County fared in Week 12 of the NFL season:

Devante Downs

— This week: The Mountlake Terrace High School graduate and New York Giants linebacker started at weak-side linebacker in the Giants’ 19-17 road triumph over the Cincinnati Bengals. However, Downs played just eight defensive snaps (he also appeared on 20 special teams snaps) and did not record a stat.

— Season: Downs, who has started seven of New York’s 11 games, has seen his playing time fluctuate throughout the season. He has recorded 25 tackles (19 solo, six assisted), one pass defensed, one fumble recovered and one quarterback hit for the 4-7 Giants.

Jake Luton

— This week: After three weeks starting at quarterback for the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Marysville Pilchuck High School grad hit the bench as the Jaguars turned to journeyman Mike Glennon in their 27-25 home defeat to the Cleveland Browns.

— Season: Luton was 60-for-110 for 624 yards with two touchdowns and six interceptions in his three starts. Glennon had a respectable game against the Browns, and with No. 1 Gardner Minshew II close to returning from his thumb injury, Luton is in danger of being left inactive by the 1-10 Jaguars.

Myles Gaskin

— This week: Gaskin, a Lynnwood native and O’Dea High School alum who’s now playing running back for the Miami Dolphins, returned to practice after missing the previous three games because of a sprained knee. Gaskin was eligible to be activated off IR for the first time, but the Dolphins elected not to activate him for their 20-3 road victory against the New York Jets.

— Season: Gaskin is still Miami’s leading rusher by some margin, having gained 387 yards on 100 carries with two touchdowns while also catching 30 passes for 198 yards. There is a good chance he’s activated this week by the 7-4 Dolphins.

Jacob Eason

— This week: The Lake Stevens High School product and Indianapolis Colts quarterback was not active for the Colt’s 45-26 home loss against the Tennessee Titans.

— Season: Eason is still waiting for his first game in which he’s active, as he continues to sit behind Philip Rivers and Jacoby Brissett for the 7-4 Colts.

KeiVarae Russell

— This week: The Mariner High School graduate and Green Bay Packers cornerback was not elevated from the practice squad for the Packers’ 41-25 home victory over the Chicago Bears.

— Season: Russell has only been elevated from the practice squad once since signing with Green Bay in late October. He appeared on seven special teams snaps in that game and did not record a stat for the 8-3 Packers.
