    Defense: LB Jyles Tucker, San Diego Chargers

    * Signed by the Chargers as an undrafted free agent in the offseason, Tucker has made an immediate contribution since making his NFL debut on November 25 against Baltimore. In a bid to secure the third-seed in the AFC playoffs, Tucker led the defense with four tackles, a career-high three sacks, two forced fumbles and a fumble recovery for a touchdown as the Chargers defeated Oakland 30-17. Tucker, a 6-3, 258-pound linebacker scored his first touchdown of his career in the third quarter on a fumble recovery in the end zone. The New Jersey native has totaled 3.5 sacks in 6 games this season.

    In his rookie season from Wake Forest, this is Tucker’s first career Player of the Week Award. Tucker is the third Charger to win Defensive Player of the Week honors this season (ANTONIO CROMARTIE and SHAWNE MERRIMAN).

    Other nominees for AFC Defensive Player of Week 17 were:

    * Kansas City defensive end JARED ALLEN, who posted three tackles and two sacks against the Jets.
    * Denver defensive end ELVIS DUMERVIL, who recorded three tackles, half a sack and two fumble recoveries.
    * New York rookie linebacker DAVID HARRIS, who registered 11 tackles and one sack against Kansas City.

    Great achievement by another guy following in the line of Kris Dielman, Antonio Gates, Kassim Osgood, Wes Welker and Marques Harris.

    Gems unearthed by the Gold Miner that is AJ (OK so Wes was let go but correct me if I am wrong that would have been the Head Coaches decision?).

    Congrats Jyles, don't let this go to ur head now!.

    Good for him!! He played a great game game although I thought he backed off just a little bit on one of his sacks where he could have really blasted Russell. :bolt:

    The amazing thing is he was like the second person to be called up.

    Obviously there's Marques Harris who's ahead of him but in front of Jyles Tucker was Nick Roach (remember him?) who got scooped up by the Bears. http://www.chicagobears.com/team/player159.html

    So this was the second LB on the practice squad and look what he does. Damn AJ really is goOd

    I missed the one where he backed off. Two of Tucker's sacks resulted in fumbles. On the last one he really rocked Jamarcus.
