Former Bulls in the NFL had another productive week in the professional ranks. Every player on an active roster, except for a backup QB, saw some form of playing time.
A former USF pass catcher had a good day, but a pass rusher probably had the most productive day for any Bull in the Pros.
Jason Pierre-Paul- Tampa Bay Buccaneers OLB
JPP got a sack for the second consecutive week as a part of the Bucs rout of Carolina. JPP played in a lower percentage of snaps, but was more productive, with three solo tackles, and one assisted tackle in addition to his sack. Pierre-Paul also recovered a fumble in the first quarter.
Austin Reiter- Kansas City Chiefs C
Reiter sat out practice during the week with a sore knee, but was full-go for KC’s nail-biting win over the Chargers. The former Bull played every offensive snap in their overtime victory and contributed on five special teams snaps as well.
Marquez Valdes-Scantling- Green Bay Packers WR
Valdes-Scantling was once again the Packers’ second leading receiver. He hauled in three catches for 64 yards in Green Bay’s win over the Lions. Thanks to Aaron Jones and his 168 yards rushing, the Packers didn’t feel the need to attack in the passing game that much.
Green Bay will now head to New Orleans to play the Saints on Sunday night.
D’Ernest Johnson- Cleveland Browns RB
Johnson was active for the second straight week, but saw his snap count diminish a bit. In week one he was on the field for four offensive plays and 16 special field plays. This week he only saw two offensive snaps and 15 special teams plays. He didn’t record any carries or receptions.
Deadrin Senat- Atlanta Falcons DT
Once again Senat saw some rotational action in Atlanta’s defensive line in their epic collapse against the Cowboys. He played 13 defensive snaps, which is 16% of all defensive plays for the Falcons. In that time he made one solo tackle and helped out on another.
Atlanta will play again Sunday afternoon against the Bears.
Mike White- New York Jets QB
Served as Sam Darnold’s backup in a 31-13 loss to San Francisco. He didn’t see any playing time in the loss.
Mazzi Wilkins- Tampa Bay Buccaneers CB
Wilkins got his first snaps of the NFL season in the Bucs win over the Panthers. He played eight special teams snaps, but didn’t get any action on defense yet. The Bucs take on the Broncos Sunday at 4:25 p.m.
