NFL preseason Week 2: How the Cougars fared

NFL: Los Angeles Rams at Detroit Lions Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports

The NFL preseason rolled on this week with nearly all of the games in the books. That meant another week of 10 former Cougar football players trying to make NFL rosters and advance their careers.

Unlike last week when Shalom Luani shined, there were no major standouts among the group of Cougars this week.

Here is a look at how they all fared.

Deone Bucannon - Arizona Cardinals - Linebacker/Safety

Bucannon remains out with an injury, but appears on track to return for the start of the regular season.

Xavier Cooper - Cleveland Browns - Defensive Line

Cooper will get a chance to showcase his skills Monday night on national television as the Browns take on the Giants.

Joe Dahl - Detroit Lions - Offensive Line

Dahl played 47 snaps, the second most of anyone on the Lions, and could open the season as the Lions’ starting left tackle due to an injury.

John Fullington - New Orleans Saints - Offensive Line

Fullington did not play in the Saints second preseason game.

Shalom Luani - Oakland Raiders - Safety

Luani recorded three tackles while playing 33 total snaps, including 20 on defense.

Gabe Marks - New York Jets - Receiver

Marks made his preseason debut, playing 19 snaps. He caught his only actual target for 9 yards. He drew a 28-yard pass interference penalty.

Marquess Wilson - New York Jets - Receiver

According to the box score, it doesn’t appear Wilson played a snap in the second preseason game.

Vince Mayle - Baltimore Ravens - Tight End

Mayle played 26 snaps, and was targeted one time, catching the pass for 17 yards.

Kache Palacio - Seattle Seahawks - Linebacker

Palacio recorded three tackles, a half sack and two quarterback hurries in 28 snaps.

Destiny Vaeao - Philadelphia Eagles - Defensive Line

Vaeao recorded one tackle and one quarterback hurry while playing 45 snaps. He did get flagged for roughing the passer once.
