Gresham had somewhat of a breakout game last Sunday, recording nine receptions for 85 yards receiving and a touchdown during Cincinnati's 23-17 loss to the Indianapolis Colts. Because of the performance, Jermaine Gresham is one of five players nominated for this week's Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Week honors.

Gresham is up against Buccaneers running back LeGarrette Blount (91 yards rushing and a touchdown), Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski (five receptions, 72 yards receiving and three touchdowns), Cowboys cornerback Bryan McCann (five tackles, 101-yard pick-six) and Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow (passing and rushing touchdowns).

Gresham isn't the first Bengals rookie nominated this year for rookie of the week honors. Jordan Shipley's 131 yards receiving against the Atlanta Falcons in week seven, which included a 64-yard touchdown reception, earned him a nomination, only defeated by Dez Bryant's 171 yards of total offense and three touchdowns against the New York Giants.
