Hokies in the NFL: Week 7

Probably one of the coolest pictures of James Anderson you'll seee - Grant Halverson

Thin this week with off-weeks for a lot of Hokies.

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:

James Anderson, LB Carolina Panthers- Anderson and the Panthers returned from their bye week and fell to the Cowboys in a tight game. Anderson tallied 12 tackles with seven coming as solo efforts and one as a tackle for a loss. Anderson also defended a pass and stopped a 3rd and 4 run for a loss to force a field goal. Anderson was also penalized 15 yards for a horsecollar tackle.

Jarrett Boykin, WR Green Bay Packers- Boykin did not accumulate any stats.

Kam Chancellor, SS Seattle Seahawks- Chancellor and the Seahawks fell to the 49ers on Thursday night. Chancellor totaled four tackls, all solo, but was limited with an ankle injury.

Shayne Graham, K Houston Texans- Graham and the Texans steamrolled the Ravens in a bit of a surprising result (the margin, not necessarily who won). Graham was 2 of 2 on the day with field goals of 33 and 29 yards. Graham also converted all five extra points on the day.
2/2 FG (33, 29), 5/5 XP

Cody Grimm, FS Tampa Bay Buccaneers- Grimm tallied one solo tackle in the Bucs' loss to the Saints.

Brandon Flowers, CB Kansas City Chiefs- Flowers and the Chiefs had a bye week.

DeAngelo Hall, CB Washington Redskins- Hall tallied three tackles with all three as solo efforts in the Redskins' loss to the Giants. Hall also defended a pass and was penalized 15 yards for unnecessary roughness.
3 TAK, 3 SOLO, 1 PD

Jayron Hosley, CB New York Giants- Hosley got burn by Santana Moss on a 30-yard touchdown pass that looked like it might be the game-winner for the Redskins. Luckily, for Hosley, Eli Manning connected with Victor Cruz on a 77-yard touchdown to win the game for the Giants. Hosley also totaled five tackles--all solo--and recovered a fumble to seal the win for the Giants.

Jeff King, TE Arizona Cardinals- King did not accumulate any stats.

Josh Morgan, WR Washington Redskins- Morgan pulled in two passes for 16 yards, but had a 30-yard touchdown catch nullified by a penalty. :( . Morgan also had a tackle as he was credited with the tackle on Hosley's fumble recovery.
2 REC, 16 YDS, TAK

Eddie Royal, WR San Diego Chargers- Eddie and the Chargers were off this week.

Darryl Tapp, DE Philadelphia Eagles- Tapp and the Eagles had a bye week.

Tyrod Taylor, QB Baltimore Ravens- Tyrod did not accumulate any stats.

Michael Vick, QB Philadelphia Eagles- Vick and the Eagles were off this week.

David Wilson, RB New York Giants- Wilson had no carries, but did return four kicks for 106 yards, including a 32 yarder. Wilson returned a kick to the 23, and two plays later the Giants scored the game-winner.
4 RET, 106 YDS

Jason Worilds LB Pittsburgh Steelers- Worilds did not accumulate any stats.

Inactive players: 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: James Anderson takes this one very easily.
