Hokies in the NFL: Week 6

Week 6 was not thrilling for former Hokies, but these things happen. Especially when two of the best players are out of the lineup. No matter as some former Bud Foster students came to play.

James Anderson, LB Chicago Bears -- Anderson and Da Bears played on Thursday night the Giants and James earned a pair of solo tackles in the Chicago win.

Nick Becton, OT San Diego Chargers -- Becton did not start, but was on the sidelines.

Jarrett Boykin, WR Green Bay Packers -- With several injuries to Green Bay's receiving corps, Boykin was a frequent target for Aaron Rodgers. Boykin's highlight of the game came on a screen pass that he ran for 43 yards. It was quite a good run after the catch, really. Boykin caught the ball with some blockers out in front of him and it was almost like watching horses run around a track because there were players on both teams running with him, but they couldn't pull him down until 43 yards later. The Packers later scored a field goal on that drive. Boykin also had a very heads-up fumble recovery by coming back to the line of scrimmage after Rodgers discount doublechecked the ball onto the ground. He didn't gain any yards on the recovery, but with the Packers in the shadow their own goal line, it was pretty big. Boykin was targeted six times, but several throws would have been very tough for him to pull in. Others, he just dropped.

Duane Brown, OG Houston Texans -- Brown and the Texans were pummeled by the Rams on Sunday and starting quarterback Matt Schaub went down with an ankle injury. The Pro-Bowl tackle was flagged for a facemask on the first drive of the night for the Texans.

Roc Carmichael, CB Philadelphia Eagles -- Roc was flagged for pass interference, but other than that there's not much to report.

Kam Chancellor, S Seattle Seahawks -- Chancellor had an unusually quiet day, tallying just three total tackles and only one as a solo effort.

Brandon Flowers, CB Kansas City Chiefs -- The Chiefs are still undefeated. I repeat, the Chiefs are still undefeated and it's week 6. But Brandon Flowers was inactive.

DeAngelo Hall, CB Washington Redskins -- In the battle of teams whose fans constantly flood my social network timelines, Hall racked up seven total tackles with five of them as solo efforts and one pass defended.

Jayron Hosley, CB New York Giants -- Hosley was out injured as he continues to nurse a hamstring injury.

Will Montgomery, G Washington Redskins -- I didn't watch the game, but apparently Montgomery did good things. Take it away, tweets:

Josh Morgan, WR Washington Redskins -- Morgan had one catch for six yards, but he also returned one kickoff for 20 yards and four punts for a total of 17 yards.
1 REC, 6 YDS; 1 KRET, 20 YDS; 4 PRET, 17 YDS.

Eddie Royal, WR San Diego Chargers -- Royal was not credited with any catches, but he did get four yards on a reverse. He injured his toe on the reverse, but he returned to the sidelines. Royal also was held on a long pass and the Chargers later scored a touchdown on the same drive.

Andre Smith, TE Dallas Cowboys -- Inactive this week.

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

Darryl Tapp, DE/LB Washington Redskins -- Did not accumulate any stats that I can see.

Michael Vick, QB Philadelphia Eagles -- Vick sat out with sore hamstring and Nick Foles kind of tore it up with 296 yards, 3 passing TDs and one rushing TD. Chip Kelly has said Vick would be the starter when healthy, but uh...that might not be the case.

Ryan Williams, RB Arizona Cardinals -- Inactive again. Yup.

David Wilson, RB New York Giants -- Wilson sat out with a neck injury that may turn out to be a little more serious than originally thought. Early reports indicated that Wilson had spinal stenosis, which is a narrowing of the spinal column, which is the injury that ended Cooper Manning's football career. However, it was later determined that he may only miss 3-4 weeks instead of the remainder of the season that was expected. Hope for a speedy recovery for David.

Jason Worilds, LB Pittsburgh Steelers -- Looks like Worilds had a heck of a game against the Jets as the Steelers got their first win. Worilds was credited with a sack of rookie QB Geno Smith and then later forced a fumble on a 1-yard run by Smith. On the Smith fumble, I think Worilds was credited with two tackles on one play. In all, Worilds had six total tackles with five solo tackles to go with the sack.
