5.) Tyrel Dodson
The linebacker position took a big blow back in Week 5 when Matt Milano was carted off the field with a leg injury and eventually played on the IR. The linebacker room then looked like Terrel Bernard and a rotation between rookie Dorian Williams and Tyrel Dodson.
Going up against the Bengals, Williams was the starter but then was eventually replaced by Dodson. While Dodson was second in total tackles for the defense, there were times when he was out of position and allowed a dump-off catch to gain extra yards. While he stepped up in the second half, the first two quarters were ones to forget.
With Terrel Bernard suffering a concussion against the Bengals, Dodson and Williams are more than likely going to be commanding the defense on Monday night against the Broncos. Dodson is a thumper who can stop the run, but has difficulty going into coverage and it showed against Cincinnati.
