Rashard Higgins returns this week for a football game in Colorado for the first time since starring for CSU.
The third-year wide receiver for the Cleveland Browns will play at Mile High Stadium at 6:20 p.m. Saturday (NFL Network) against the Denver Broncos.
The 6-foot-1, 198-pound Higgins is having the best season of his career despite missing three games with a knee injury.
Higgins has 27 catches for 396 yards and three touchdowns, all career-highs. He has at least one catch in all 10 games he has played this season.
The Broncos have two former Rams on the roster, but neither is likely to take the field against Higgins on Saturday.
Linebacker Shaquil Barrett has missed the last two games with a hip flexor injury. He’s been at practice this week but not participating, according to Mike Klis of 9News.
Barrett, a fifth-year pro, has 24 tackles and three sacks this season. Former Colorado State University quarterback Garrett Grayson is a member of the Broncos’ practice squad. The 2015 third-round pick of the New Orleans Saints hasn’t been active this season for the Broncos.
Here’s a look at how the rest of the former Rams in the NFL are faring:
Michael Gallup, wide receiver, Dallas Cowboys
The rookie has seen his production go up in recent weeks, catching at least two passes or more in six of the last seven games. He had four catches for 24 yards last week as the Cowboys won their fifth game in a row.
Gallup has 27 catches for 404 yards and a touchdown this season.
Next up: 11 a.m. Sunday at Indianapolis
Weston Richburg, center, San Francisco 49ers
The fifth-year pro has played and started 12 of 13 games for the 49ers, including helping San Francisco to a 20-14 win over the Broncos last week.
After the game against Denver, Richburg connected with former Rams Barrett, Grayson and Ray Jackson (the Broncos director of player development) for a photo and traded jerseys with Barrett.
Next up: 2:05 p.m. Sunday vs. Seattle
Kapri Bibbs, running back, Washington Redskins
He was inactive for last week’s game against the Giants, the first time he didn’t play since being promoted from the practice squad in late September.
The third-year pro has 20 carries for 101 yards and three touchdowns and 13 catches for 102 yards and a touchdown this season.
Next up: 11 a.m. Sunday at Jacksonville
Zack Golditch, offensive guard, Arizona Cardinals
After bouncing around the league earlier this season, Golditch has found some footing with the Cardinals. He’s played in two games for Arizona after signing with the Cardinals mid-season. The rookie didn’t play last week in a loss to Detroit.
He spent the preseason with the L.A. Chargers and spent time on the practice squads of the 49ers and Indianapolis Colts before signing with Arizona.
Next up: 11 a.m. Sunday at Atlanta
Ty Sambrailo, offensive tackle, Atlanta Falcons
Sambrailo made his first start of the season last week in a loss to Green Bay, taking over at right tackle for the Falcons.
The fourth-year pro has appeared in all 13 games this season for Atlanta.
Next up: 11 a.m. Sunday vs. Arizona
Trent Sieg, long snapper, Oakland Raiders
Sieg, an undrafted rookie, has appeared in 12 straight games as Oakland’s long snapper since signing with the Raiders.
Next up: 11 a.m. Sunday at Cincinnati
Dalyn Dawkins, running back
Dawkins, an undrafted rookie, was released by the Tennessee Titans on Dec. 3. He didn’t appear in any games after being promoted from the Titans’ practice squad in November.
