Hauschka named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week

September 27, 2017

After connecting on four field goals, three of which were from 49 yards out or longer, Bills kicker Stephen Hauschka has been named the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week for week three in the NFL.

It’s the second time in Hauschka’s career he has received the honor. He was named NFC Special Teams Player of the Week as a member of the Settle Seahawks in week four of 2013.

In the team’s 26-16 win over the Denver Broncos, Hauschka connected on field goals of 27, 49, 53, and 55-yards, plus a pair of extra points. He also put five of seven kickoffs in the end zone. Three of those went for touchbacks. He became the first kicker in Bills history to hit two field goals of 53 yards or longer in the same game.

All three AFC Players of the Week for week three came from the AFC East. Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and Jets safety Terrence Brooks were also honored.

Glenn still out of practice, Dareus limited

Head coach Sean McDermott told the media Wednesday that left tackle Cordy Glenn will not practice later in the day.  Glenn missed last week's game due to his ankle/foot injury.  

McDermott also said DT Marcell Dareus (ankle) will be limited, while DT Kyle Williams and LB Lorenzo Alexander will get scheduled rest days.
