It was not a banner week for the Cougars in the NFL, with the four Cougars already in action in Week 3 all suffering losses. The group could get a significant boost on Monday, however, with a chance Deone Bucannon makes his season debut.
Bucannon missed the first two weeks of the season due to an ankle injury. He returned to practice this week on a limited basis and could soon be back on the field blowing up ball carriers.
Here is a look at how all of the Cougs fared in Week 3.
Deone Bucannon - Arizona Cardinals - Linebacker/Safety
After missing the first two weeks of the season, Bucannon could see his first action of 2017 on Monday night. It sounds like he will be a game-time decision, but either way, he should be back on the field sooner, rather than later.
Xavier Cooper - San Francisco 49ers - Defensive Line
For the second straight week, Cooper was inactive for the 49ers.
Joe Dahl - Detroit Lions - Offensive Line
Dahl was inactive for the Lions on Sunday.
Shalom Luani - Oakland Raiders - Safety
Luani did not record a stat in the Raiders loss to Washington.
Vince Mayle - Baltimore Ravens - Tight End
Mayle once again played a special teams role for the Ravens, who lost 44-7 to Jacksonville in London on Sunday.
