Well, as injuries pile up (currently 4 former Hokies are out for the year) and teams start to get their bye weeks going, there is not a whole lot for this week's post.
For a bit of a news update, Josh Morgan will miss the rest of the season with an ankle injury. Broncos' WR Eddie Royal was actually the talk of some trades this week and as Brandon Lloyd was dealt, it looked like Royal would join him in the departure list. However, the Broncos held on to Royal and will now have to look at either giving him a new contract or losing him in the offseason.
Follow the jump to see how former Hokies did in Week 6 of the NFL.
Inactives: Xavier Adibi, Darren Evans
Out for the season: Roc Carmichael (shoulder), Cody Grimm (knee), Ryan Williams (knee), Josh Morgan (ankle)
Kam Chancellor-S, Seattle Seahawks: Seahawks had a bye.
DeAngelo Hall-CB, Washington Redskins: DeAngelo had six total tackles with two of them coming as solo tackles. Hall also intercepted Vince Young (who temporarily replaced Mike Vick) as the Redskins lost to the Eagles.
Carlton Powell-DT, Atlanta Falcons: Did not accumulate any stats.
Tyrod Taylor-QB, Baltimore Ravens: Did not accumulate any stats.
Mike Vick-QB, Philadelphia Eagles: After throwing four interceptions against the Buffalo Bills, Vick played better against the division-rival Redskins. Vick was 18/37 for 237 yards, 1 TD, and 1 INT and rushed 7 times for 54 yards. Vick's lone TD pass came on a 7-yard toss to Brent Celek.
Jason Worilds-LB, Pittsburgh Steelers: Did not accumulate any stats.
