This week in the NFL, former Wildcat Ricky Lumpkin rejoined the ranks of Kentucky's active NFL alumni with a promotion from the Oakland Raiders' practice squad to their 53-man roster for the second time in two seasons. The 6-foot-4 defensive tackle went undrafted in 2011, but spent time with the Raiders and Arizona Cardinals over the past three seasons.
With NFL standouts Danny Trevathan and Larry Warford still sidelined by injury, Kentucky's NFL Cats went a combined 4-7 in Week 13.
Cats in the Spotlight
Randall Cobb | #18 WR | Green Bay Packers (9-3)
Cobb caught seven passes for 85 yards in Green Bay's monumental 26-21 win over the New England Patriots. Even without scoring a touchdown, Cobb is still tied for third place among league leaders with 10 receiving touchdowns on the season.
Stevie Johnson | #13 WR | San Francisco 49ers (7-5)
Despite his team's offensive struggles, Johnson finished with three catches for 28 yards (posting a 9.3-yard-per-catch average) in the 49ers' 19-3 Thanksgiving loss to the defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks.
Wesley Woodyard | #59 ILB | Tennessee Titans (2-10)
Despite another solid defensive performance from Woodyard, the Titans dropped their sixth consecutive game of the season. Woodyard totaled four tackles (three solo, one assist) in Tennessee's 45-21 loss to the Houston Texans.
