Here’s a look back at how #ProHogs performed in Week 7 of the NFL regular season:
After having just four receptions through the first six weeks, Wright hauled in three passes on Sunday to bring his total to seven catches for 93 yards this season. His three grabs against the Ravens went for a season-high 54 yards, averaging 18.0 yards per reception.
Wright lays out for a nice catch here, then gets a pat on the helmet from his former quarterback at Arkansas, Ryan Mallett.

Henry continues to be Philip Rivers’ favorite tight end target, as the second-year player hauled in four receptions for 73 yards, including a 34-yard catch on San Diego’s first offensive play of the game. Three of his four catches went for at least 13 yards and a first down, pushing his first-down catch total to 15. Among NFL tight ends, Henry ranks in the top 10 in yards (9th – 301), 20-plus yard receptions (T-6th – 4) and first down receptions (T-8th – 15). He also ranks fourth in the league in first-down percentage among tight ends with at least 10 receptions at 71.4 percent. In the last three games, Henry has 12 receptions for 205 yards for an average of 17.1 yards per catch.
Derby led all receivers with six receptions for 66 yards, bringing his season total to 15 receptions for 190 yards and one touchdown. Eight of his receptions this season, including two on Sunday, have resulted in a first down.
