The 29-year-old former Palisades High All-City lineman is the NFL’s ultimate ironman, not having missed a snap in  his seven seasons (four in Cleveland, three in Kansas City).

Meanwhile, Palisadian Chris Conte, a defensive back for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, made 14 tackles in the team’s first two contests (victories over New Orleans and Philadelphia). The 29-year-old is in his eighth season (four in Chicago, four in Tampa Bay).
