How local NFL products fared in Week 14

Lynnwood native Myles Gaskin lands on the reserve/COVID-19 list for the Dolphins and sits out.

Here’s how players from Snohomish County fared in Week 14 of he NFL season:

Devante Downs

— This week: The Mountlake Terrace High School graduate has been in and out of the starting lineup at linebacker for the New York Giants all season long, and this week he did not start in the Giants’ 26-7 home loss to the Arizona Cardinals. While he was on the field for just five defensive snaps, he made the tackle on two of those five plays. He also had an assisted tackle on special teams as he played 21 special teams snaps.

— Season: Downs, who has seven starts in 13 games, ranks 13th on the team with 30 tackles (22 solo, eight assisted). He also has one fumble recovered, one quarterback hit and one pass defensed for the 5-8 Giants.

Myles Gaskin

— This week: The hits kept coming for the Lynnwood native who attended O’Dea High School. Last week Gaskin, the Miami Dolphins’ No. 1 running back, returned after missing four games because of a sprained knee. But his comeback was derailed as he was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list, meaning he had to sit out the Dolphins’ 33-27 home loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.

— Season: Gaskin remains Miami’s leading rusher with 477 yards on 121 carries while scoring two touchdowns, and he also has 32 receptions for 249 yards. He’ll be hoping to get off the reserve/COVID-19 list in time for the 8-5 Dolphins’ home game Sunday against New England.

Jake Luton

— This week: For the second straight week the Marysville Pilchuck High School graduate and Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback was left inactive, as he did not dress for the Jaguars’ 31-10 home loss to the Tennessee Titans.

— Season: Luton, who started three games through the middle of the season, finds himself behind Mike Glennon and Gardner Minshew II on the depth chart for the 1-12 Jaguars. However, with Glennon being pulled from Sunday’s game after a poor performance, Luton may have a chance to get back in uniform for Sunday’s game at Baltimore. Luton is 60-for-110 for 624 yards with two touchdowns and six interceptions this season.

Jacob Eason

— This week: The Lake Stevens High School graduate and Indianapolis Colts quarterback was inactive for the Colts’ 44-27 road victory over the Las Vegas Raiders.

— Season: Eason still has yet to get into uniform this season for the 9-4 Colts as he remains behind Philip Rivers and Jacoby Brissett in the pecking order.

KeiVarae Russell

— This week: The Mariner High School graduate and Green Bay Packers cornerback was not elevated from the practice squad for the Packers’ 31-24 road victory over the Detroit Lions.

— Season: It’s now been four weeks since Russell had his lone game in which he was elevated from Green Bay’s practice squad. His season consists of a total of seven special teams snaps.
