There is a lot going on in the world of Washington State Cougars football. The Cougars are buzzing around the college football landscape after knocking off No. 5 USC on Friday.

There isn’t very much going on for Cougars in the NFL, especially in comparison to what is happening in Pullman. It might make sense to pivot away from weekly Monday updates about the Cougs in the NFL. At the same time, we’ve done it for five weeks and the Cougars are 5-0.

So with that said, here are the Cougar NFL updates for Week 4.

Deone Bucannon - Arizona Cardinals - Linebacker/Safety

After missing the first three weeks of the season, Bucannon made his 2017 debut on Sunday. He started the game for the Cardinals and recorded his first tackle of the season.

Xavier Cooper - San Francisco 49ers - Defensive Line

Cooper got to see Bucannon’s debut up close from the other side of the field. After being inactive the last couple weeks, Cooper was back in action on Sunday. He didn’t record a stat, and was flagged for one offside penalty.

Joe Dahl - Detroit Lions - Offensive Line

Dahl was placed on Injured Reserve by the Lions last week, likely ending his 2017 season.

Shalom Luani - Oakland Raiders - Safety

Luani continued to play his role as a backup defensive back and a key contributor on special teams. He didn’t record a tackle this week, but was in on the coverage units.

Vince Mayle - Baltimore Ravens - Tight End

Mayle recorded a special teams tackle in the Ravens 26-9 loss.

Destiny Vaeao - Philadelphia Eagles - Defensive End

Vaeao was not active for the Eagles in Week 4.
