Hokies in the NFL: Week 11

Another slow week for Hokies in the NFL as several Hokies were inactive, injured or on a bye week. However, Bud Foster products DeAngelo Hall and James Anderson both turned in solid performances.

Patrick Smith

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 fell in overtime to the Buccaneers. Anderson totaled seven tackles with four of them as solo efforts. Anderson was flagged for unnecessary roughness for a tackle on Josh Freeman (Freeman was sliding and Anderson hit him).

Jarrett Boykin, WR Green Bay Packers- Boykin was back on the inactive list.

Kam Chancellor, SS Seattle Seahawks- Chancellor and the Seahawks had a bye week.

Shayne Graham, K Houston Texans- Graham was 3 of 5 on the day, hitting field goals of 42, 27 and 25 yards, but missing kicks from 50 and 47 yards. Graham was also hit all four extra points on the day as the Texans beat the Jaguars in overtime.
3/5 (42, 27, 25, 50X, 47X), 4/4 XP

Cody Grimm, FS Tampa Bay Buccaneers- Grimm accumulated no stats...though he did down a punt, it just does not show up as a stat.

Brandon Flowers, CB Kansas City Chiefs- Flowers totaled five tackles with four solo efforts in the loss to the Bengals.

DeAngelo Hall, CB Washington Redskins- Hall's big play of the day was an interception of a Nick Foles pass (the third play of the game), which he returned 22 yards. The Redskins quickly cashed in on the interception with a touchdown. Hall also totaled seven tackles, six as solo efforts and including two as tackles for losses.

Jayron Hosley, CB New York Giants- Hosley and the Giants had a bye week.

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

Josh Morgan, WR Washington Redskins- Morgan pulled in three passes for 25 yards in the Redskins' romp of the Eagles.
3 REC, 25 YDS

Eddie Royal, WR San Diego Chargers- Eddie did not accumulate any stats in the loss to his former team. Too bad Manning wasn't on the team when Eddie was there.

Darryl Tapp, DE Philadelphia Eagles- Tapp earned three total tackles, two solo tackles and one tackle for loss. Tapp knocked Alfred Morris out of bounds for a five yard loss.
3 TAK, 2 SOLO, 1 TFL

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

Michael Vick, QB Philadelphia Eagles- Vick was sidelined from this game with a concussion and the Eagles did even worse. Maybe Nick Foles' performance will end some of the calls for him to start over Vick. Philadelphia, here's a clue to the problem: it rhymes with Candy Seed.

David Wilson, RB New York Giants- Wilson and the Giants had a bye week.

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).

Player of the week: DeAngelo Hall for his performance against the Eagles.
