The Monday Morning ProCanes report will weed through all the NFL highlights and news to bring you the information you care about the most… what the former University of Miami Hurricanes did during the week prior. On a Sunday when many of the most prominent Hurricanes were missing from NFL action, the Pro Canes recorded countless key performances but were unable to manage a touchdown. With two more players in action tonight, the Pro Canes can still stretch the streak to 150 consecutive weeks with a touchdown dating back to Week 15 of the 2002 NFL season.

Colin McCarthy (Tennessee Titans) – 10 tackles, 4 tackles for loss, 1 forced fumble
The rookie fourth-round draft pick, coming off a strong first start in last week’s victory over Carolina, picked up where he left off in Sunday’s 23-17 loss to Atlanta. McCarthy, who replaced injured starting linebacker Barrett Ruud in the second quarter, finished the game as the Titans’ leading tackler for the second straight week. He recorded ten tackles, including a team-high four tackles for loss, and forced a key fumble in the fourth quarter that would result in a Tennessee touchdown. McCarthy now leads the team with 18 tackles over his past two games.

Kellen Winslow
(Tampa Bay Buccaneers) – 9 catches, 132 yards
The eighth-year tight end had his breakout performance in 2011 on Sunday with a stellar showing at Lambeau Field; Winslow’s nine-catch performance was a season-high, and his 132-yard output was a career high. In a hostile environment as visitors in Green Bay, the tight end recorded his first 100-yard game since Week 10 of the 2009 season. Winslow, who has been a frequent target of third-year quarterback Josh Freeman, nearly extended the ProCanes streak with a touchdown that was nullified on a pass interference call.

Campbell, who blocked his third field goal of the season and fifith of his career in the first quarter, finished the day with four tackles. The defensive end, who managed to record his first career interception last week against Philadelphia, is on pace to finish the 2011 season with career highs in tackles and sacks.
