How the Cougs fared in Week 2 of the NFL season

New, 1 comment
NFL: Oakland Raiders at Arizona Cardinals Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The Cougars improved to 3-0 on the season this weekend, but things did not go as well for some former Cougars now playing at the next level. Of the five Cougars eligible to play on Sunday, only two were active, and neither recorded a stat in the boxscore.

There wasn’t a lot of winning going on with just two of the five enjoying wins. Maybe Joe Dahl will have a big game on Monday night to make up for it.

Here is how the Cougs fared on Sunday.

Deone Bucannon - Arizona Cardinals - Linebacker/Safety

Bucannon remains out with an ankle injury and did not play for the second consecutive week.

Xavier Cooper - San Francisco 49ers - Defensive Line

Cooper was back home in Washington on Sunday against the Seahawks, but did not get to play in front of his home crowd as he was inactive for the game.

Joe Dahl - Detroit Lions - Offensive Line

Dahl will get to play on Monday Night Football when the Lions take on the New York Giants.

Shalom Luani - Oakland Raiders - Safety

Luani remained undefeated in his NFL career, but didn’t record a tackle according to the box score.

Vince Mayle - Baltimore Ravens - Tight End

Mayle got into the game for the Ravens, and got a win against the team that drafted him, but did not record a stat.

Destiny Vaeao - Philadelphia Eagles - Defensive Line

Vaeao was inactive for the Eagles in Week 2.
