Here is an update on how NFL players from Snohomish County fared during Week 9 of the season:
— This week: The Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback, who’s a graduate of Marysville Pilchuck High School, made his first career start in place of the injured Gardner Minshew II, going 26-for-38 for 304 yards with one touchdown and one interception, while also scoring on a 13-yard touchdown run in the host Jaguars’ 27-25 loss to the Houston Texans. The TD pass was a 73-yarder to DJ Chark in the first minute of the game, while the TD run came in the final two minutes and gave the Jaguars an opportunity to tie the score with a two-point conversion.

— Bleacher Report (@BleacherReport) November 8, 2020
— Season: Sunday’s game was Luton’s first action of the season for the 1-7 Jaguars. He has been named the starter again for Sunday’s road game against the Green Bay Packers.
— This week: After starting the previous two games at weak-side linebacker for the New York Giants, Downs, who graduated from Mountlake Terrace High School, came off the bench in the Giants’ 23-20 victory at Washington. Downs still appeared on 54% of New York’s defensive snaps, registering three solo tackles and one assisted tackle. He also played on 77% of the Giants’ special teams snaps.
— Season: Downs has five starts in nine games for the 2-7 Giants, totalling 20 tackles, one fumble recovery, one quarterback hit and one pass defensed.
— This week: The Miami Dolphins running back, who hails from Lynnwood and attended O’Dea High School in Seattle, was placed on injured reserve last week because of a knee injury, thus missing the Dolphins’ 34-31 home victory over the Los Angeles Rams. Gaskin is required to miss three games, but the injury is not expected to keep him out longer than that.
— Season: Gaskin had grabbed hold of Miami’s starting running back position, rushing for 387 yards on 100 carries with two touchdowns and catching 30 passes for 198 yards for the 5-3 Dolphins.
— This week: The Indianapolis Colts quarterback, who graduated from Lake Stevens High School, was inactive for the Colts’ 24-10 loss to the Baltimore Ravens.
— Season: Eason has yet to be active for a game this season for the 5-3 Colts as he remains third on the depth chart behind Philip Rivers and Jacoby Brissett.
— This week: The Green Bay cornerback, who graduated from Mariner High School, is on the Packers’ practice squad.
— Season: Russell has not been elevated from the practice squad since signing with the 6-2 Packers on Oct. 28.
