How the Cougs fared in Week 11 of the NFL season

Every week we highlight how the Cougs are faring in the NFL, but recently we could just call this the Deone Bucannon update. Bucannon’s season got off to a slow start due to an ankle injury, but that is an afterthought at this point. The Cardinals already picked up Bucannon’s 2018 option and it’s a good thing, because soon enough he is going to get paid.

Deone Bucannon - Arizona Cardinals - Linebacker/Safety

Bucannon continues to have a great season. He led the Cardinals in tackles on Sunday with 13. That included one tackle for loss. He also defended a pass and forced a fumble.

Xavier Cooper - New York Jets - Defensive Line

Like the Cougs, Cooper also got some rest this week with the New York Jets on a bye.

Joe Dahl - Detroit Lions - Offensive Line

Dahl is on injured reserve for the Lions.

Shalom Luani - Oakland Raiders - Safety

Luani recorded three tackles, including one TFL, during the Raiders’ loss in Mexico City.

Vince Mayle - Baltimore Ravens - Tight End

Mayle recorded a special teams tackle, but did not record an offensive stat this week.

Destiny Vaeao - Philadelphia Eagles - Defensive End

Vaeao batted down a pass to force a punt late in the Eagles’ win against Dallas.
