Joe McKnight Named AFC Special Teams Player of the Month for October

New, comments

Hey, remember last season when RB Joe McKnight was throwing up all over training camp, and could not seem to get out of the doghouse? Remember how TERRIBLE he looked in the pre-season? Well, good things come for people who work hard. We saw the potential last season against the Buffalo Bills in the final game of the season, when he carried the ball 32 times for 158 yards, and how electric McKnight has looked this year on special teams. He leads the league with 13 returns for a 40 yard average. He also has a 107 yard TD return. McKnight has worked hard and deservers honors such as these.

McKnight has a bright future ahead, and with his role expected to expand slightly this week, I know I'm excited about him.
