Washington State won a football game this weekend and didn’t lose any athletic directors in the process, so we’re back to the normal routine of checking in on the Cougar alumni in the NFL.
Deone Bucannon may have missed the first few games of the season, but he is officially fully back after the show he put on this week.
Deone Bucannon - Arizona Cardinals - Linebacker/Safety
Bucannon led the Cardinals in tackles with 12. One of those was for a loss. He also defended a pass. Oh, and he intercepted a pass and returned it 39 yards. Bucannon announced his presence with authority this week.
Xavier Cooper - San Francisco 49ers - Defensive Line
Cooper continued in his reserve role. He recorded one tackle, but was also flagged for an offsides penalty.
Joe Dahl - Detroit Lions - Offensive Line
Dahl is on injured reserve for the Lions.
Shalom Luani - Oakland Raiders - Safety
Luani played 22 snaps for the Raisers on Thursday Night, but only one was on defense, and he didn’t record a stat.

Mayle recorded one rushing attempt, but didn’t gain a yard. He also returned one kickoff for 14 yards, as he continues to do a little bit of everything for the Ravens.
Destiny Vaeao - Philadelphia Eagles - Defensive End
Vaeao will get a chance to play on Monday Night Football when the Eagles face Washington.
