We're down one Hokie this week as Ryan Williams sits out the rest of the year with a shoulder injury. Or, if I were a broadcaster I'd do something annoying as hell and say that he's out the rest of the year with a shoulder. But I digress. Here's your weekly installment of Hokies in the NFL.
As with last year, no offensive lineman are mentioned because it's just too hard to really tell how they performed. The Hokies in the NFL are below in alphabetical order:
Jarrett Boykin, WR Green Bay Packers- As pointed out in the comments below, Boykin hit the field for the first time, no longer on the inactive list. Though he didn't accumulate any stats, the rookie did get to see the field late in the Pack win over Houston.
Kam Chancellor, SS Seattle Seahawks- Chancellor and the Seahawks pulled off a big upset with a one-point win over the New England Patriots. Chancellor had 11 total tackles with seven coming as solo efforts in the win.
11 TAK, 7 SOLO
DeAngelo Hall, CB Washington Redskins- Hall tallied seven tackles with three solo tackles with a pass defended and a game-sealing interception as the Redskins knocked off the Minnesota Vikings.
7 TAK, 3 SOLO, 1 PD, 1 INT
Jeff King, TE Arizona Cardinals- King caught two passes for 10 yards total, including a nine-yard reception, in the Cardinals' loss to the Bills. The Cardinals are 0-2 in games in which Ryan Williams doesn't play the full 60-minutes...just sayin'
1 REC, 4 YDS
Josh Morgan, WR Washington Redskins- Morgan pulled in three passes for 42 yards, with receptions of 17, 16 and nine yards. Morgan also provided a crucial block on Robert Griffin III's 76-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter as the Redskins knocked off the Vikings.
3 REC, 42 YDS
Eddie Royal, WR San Diego Chargers- Eddie caught two passes for 22 yards in a wild Monday Night game. Eddie and the Chargers jumped out to a 24-0 lead at halftime, but Peyton Manning used his enormous noggin to figure out a way to lead a 35 point comeback. Eddie also returned three punts for 14 yards in the loss.
2 REC, 22 YDS; 3 RET, 14 YDS
Michael Vick, QB Philadelphia Eagles- Vick had an interesting weekend. Vick was 28 of 46 for 311 yards and two touchdowns, but he threw two interceptions as the Eagles lost to the Lions in overtime. Vick also carried the ball nine times for 59 yards, with a long of a 12 yards. His 59 yards lead the Eagles...come on LeSean McCoy. Vick completed a 2-yard pass to McCoy in the second quarter and then a 70-yard pass to Jeremy Maclin in the fourth quarter, giving the Eagles a 23-13 lead. Vick was sacked for a seven-yard loss and a 14-yard loss on back to back plays on the opening drive of overtime, setting up a 3rd down and 31 and an incomplete pass. After a punt, the Lions took the ball down the field and kicked a 45-yarder to win.
28/46, 311 YDS, 2 TD, 2 INT; 9 RUSH, 35 YARDS.
David Wilson, RB New York Giants- After scoring his first NFL touchdown last weekend, Wilson took five carries for 35 yards, including a 20 yarder. Wilson continued to impress in the return game with two returns for 93 yards, including a 66 yarder. The 66-yard return set up a touchdown by Ahmad Bradshaw. Wilson is factoring more and more into the Giants' game plan. I don't hate it.
5 RUSH, 35 YDS; 2 RET, 93 YDS
Jason Worilds LB Pittsburgh Steelers- Worilds had another good week, even if his team didn't. Worilds totaled five tackles, three of which were solo efforts. Worilds sacked Matt Hasselbeck for a six yard loss in the Steelers' Thursday night loss to the Titans.
5 TAK, 3 SOLO, SACK, TFL
WR Jarrett Boykin, Green Bay Packers; CB Roc Carmichael, Houston Texans; RB Darren Evans, Tennessee Titans (practice squad); WR Danny Coale, Dallas Cowboys (practice squad); TE Andre Smith, Indianapolis Colts (practice squad).
Player of the week: Going with Kam Chancellor's performance in the Seahawks' win.
