It was an uneventful, but restful, weekend for the Cougs in the NFL with only two of the six Cougs in the NFL seeing action in games. That was largely thanks to bye weeks where three former Cougs got a chance to rest.
Deone Bucannon - Arizona Cardinals - Linebacker/Safety
Bucannon recorded seven tackles while playing all 63 defensive snaps for the Cardinals on Thursday. He battled injuries to start the year, but he certainly appears to be 100 percent back.
Xavier Cooper - New York Jets - Defensive Line
Cooper played, but did not record a stat for the Jets.
Joe Dahl - Detroit Lions - Offensive Line
Dahl is on injured reserve for the Lions.
Shalom Luani - Oakland Raiders - Safety
Luani got the week off as the Raiders were on a bye.
Vince Mayle - Baltimore Ravens - Tight End
The Ravens were also on a bye.
Destiny Vaeao - Philadelphia Eagles - Defensive End
The Eagles were too. Maybe Luani, Mayle and Vaeao all hung out this weekend.
