Note: Going forward, White Mike will not be included in the Bulls in the Pros feature (unless he goes absolutely HAM again), but we will call attention to his incredible performance against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Coming in for relief of the injured rookie Zach Wilson, Mike White put on a performance for the ages against one of the NFL’s best defenses this year. White completed 37 passes for 405 yards and three touchdowns and was on the receiving end of a two-point conversion pass to give the Jets a 34-31 lead that would go on to be the final.
Mike White joins some elite company with his New York debut, becoming only the second QB in NFL history to throw for 400 yards in their first career start, the other being Cam Newton.
JPP and the Bucs traveled to New Orleans to face off against the Saints in a hotly anticipated match up in the NFC South. The Saints prevailed 36-27 behind another backup QB providing relief for a starter. JPP ended the day with three tackles and two passes batted down.
Despite the rumblings that MVS would be active for the week 8 matchup against Arizona, he did not get activated and continued to rest the injured hamstring. However, he is back at practice this week, pointing towards a return from the IR.
Nick Chubb was taken off the IR this past week for the Browns, meaning D’Ernest Johnson moved back down a notch to the RB2 spot. He ended the day against the Steelers with four carries for 22 yards and the lone touchdown the Browns scored.
Mack was used for one (1) snap against the Tennessee Titans this past Sunday, and despite all the rumors swirling about possible suitors for Marlon to be traded to, none of them came to fruition and he will remain on the Colts.

Wilcox was used sparingly in the Bengals loss to the Jets, accounting for two offensive snaps.
Rodney Adams was not activated off the practice squad in week 8.
Austin Reiter was once again the starting center for the second straight week despite Greg Mancz being healthy. Unfortunately, his name was brought up in discussion to the fumbled snap at the end of the first half in the redzone.
Mike Gesicki spent 10 seconds directing traffic pre-snap and then it unsurprisingly led to a fumble and a turnover. Brutal from the Dolphins pic.twitter.com/EWo2sOH1Zx— Joe Fann (@Joe_Fann) October 31, 2021
Senat spent week eight for the Falcons on the IR and was not active.
Love was not promoted to the active 53 man roster and remains on the practice squad.
