UConn in NFL: Week 16

A pair of former UConn offensive stars who began the season at backups continued to make an impact down the stretch.

Running back Donald Brown had a 51-yard scoring run and caught a 33-yard touchdown pass as the Indanapolis Colts defeated Kansas City 23-7. Tight end Ryan Griffin had five catches for 66 yards as he led the Houston Texans in catches for the second straight game. Also, Nick Williams got a chance to return kickoffs for Washington and returned nearly 24 yards on four returns.

There was some bad news as rookie cornerback Dwayne Gratz injured his ankle and he is not expected to play in the season finale.
