Buckeyes in the NFL
By Scott Dame

Michael Jenkins is fitting in quite well in Minnesota.

The receiver, who attended Leto High School in Tampa, Fla., caught nine passes for 88 yards in the Vikings’ 26-23 loss to Detroit on Sunday.

Jenkins signed with the Vikings this offseason after six seasons in Atlanta. He leads Minnesota in receptions (15), receiving yards (143) and is tied for the team lead with one touchdown catch.

Meanwhile, defensive back Donald Washington came off the bench to finish second in tackles for the Chiefs during Kansas City’s 20-17 loss to the Chargers.

Washington, out of Franklin Central High School in Indianapolis, had eight tackles and forced one fumble.

These are the your top two Buckeyes in the NFL for Week 3.
