Mason Foster nominated for NFL Rookie of the Week



After an impressive performance Sunday at Minnesota, Bucs middle linebacker Mason Foster is among five nominees for NFL Rookie of the Week.

Foster, who recorded 10 tackles, a forced fumble and his first NFL sack, played a key role in the Bucs' defensive resurgence in the second half of the win over the Vikings.

He's the only defensive nominee among this week's five candidates. The others are: Panthers quarterback Cam Newton, Raiders receiver Denarius Moore, Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton and Dolphins running back Daniel Thomas.
