It’s been a while since we’ve checked in on the Cougs playing in the NFL on a Monday morning, but with Week 16 of the NFL season nearly complete, it seems like a good time to see how the Cougs are doing at the next level.

Frankie Luvu, for one, was very excited.

Luvu had good reason to be excited as New York won its second straight game. Break up the Jets!

Luvu had a hell of a game as well. He once again got the start and finished with four tackles, a sack and a forced fumble. Luvu missed some time earlier this season with a groin injury, but he’s wrapping up the 2020 season well as he heads into free agency

Gardner Minshew - The Jaguars started Mike Glennon for some reason, so Minshew did not see any action in the Jaguars 41-17 loss.

Daniel Ekuale - Ekuale got the start at defensive tackle for the Jaguars, but did not record a stat according to the game book.

Hercules Mata’afa - Mata’afa played 37 defensive snaps for the Vikings and recorded four tackles.

Dezmon Patmon - Patmon was once again inactive for the Colts and has yet to make his NFL debut.

Jalen Thompson - Thompson was again inactive for the Cardinals as he battles an ankle injury. If Thompson and the Cardinals win in Week 17, he will have a chance to play in the playoffs for the first time in his career.

Joe Dahl - Dahl moved over to center due to injury issues and got the start before suffering a back injury of his own that forced him out of the game.

Andre Dillard remains on injured reserve for the Eagles.

River Cracraft - Cracraft has become a reliable special teams player for the 49ers, playing 16 snaps on special teams and returning one punt for four yards. He also had one offensive snap at wide receiver, but zero receptions.

It’s been a year mostly defined by cancellations and COVID-19 blues, but the highlights in our local sports landscape couldn’t be completely drowned out.
