Nominations for week two FedEx and Pepsi weekly awards are out; no Bengals

On Tuesday, the NFL released their nominations for FedEx Ground Player, FedEx Air Player and Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Week. Neither Rey Maualuga (four tackles, a sack and two forced fumbles) or Carson Palmer (three touchdown) passes made it this week for sponsored fan votes; though it would be hard pressed to see Palmer nominated. The nominations this week are:
