Some tidbits I need to pass along:
— Running back Tim Hightower, who ran for a career-high 148 yards and two touchdowns last weekend, is up for the FedEx Ground player of the week award. He is up against Raiders running back Darren McFadden (3 TDs, 123 yards rushing, a 67-yard scoring reception) and Falcons running back Michael Turner (112 yards, 3 TDs). Voting — which you can accomplish by clicking here — runs through 10 a.m. Friday.
— If you want a chance to meet kicker Jay Feely, he will be signing autographs from 6-7 p.m. tonight at Padre Murphy’s (4338 W. Bell Rd, Glendale).
— Larry Fitzgerald, who loves photography, has launched a contest called “Caught on Film.” Fitz wants fans to share personal photos, and at the end of each month one will be chosen as the best with the winner receiving a signed Fitzgerald jersey. Submissions go to Fitz’s Facebook page (facebook.com/larryfitzgerald) and the top five photos each week move on to a fan vote. The 20 finalists of the month then are voted upon on Fitz’s website (larryfitzgerald11.com). There will be a theme each month. For December, it is “Greatness.”
UPDATE: I missed that QB John Skelton was also up for Pepsi rookie of the week award. That’s what happens when you don’t scroll down far enough. Skelton is competing with Tampa WR Arrelious Benn, New England TE Rob Gronkowski, Buffalo LB Arthur Moats and San Diego RB Ryan Mathews.
