NFL Cougar Highlights: Week Two

GIBSON CELEBRATES TD

FOR THE SECOND consecutive week St. Louis receiver Brandon Gibson found the end zone. His 34-yard TD reception from Sam Bradford helped the Rams take down the Washington Redskins, 31-28, on Sunday.

It appeared Gibson scored earlier in the contest, but the call that his feet weren't down in the back of the end zone was not challenged by Rams coach Jeff Fisher.

Here's how the NFL Cougs performed in week two:

Erik Coleman, S, Detroit, 9th season: The Spokane native posted five solo tackles in the Lions' 27-19 loss to San Francisco.

Jed Collins, FB, New Orleans, 4th season :No stats from the Saints' 35-27 fall to Carolina.

Jerome Harrison, RB, Detroit, 7th season: Did not play; officially listed on the Lions' reserve/non-football injury list.

Chris Ivory, RB, New Orleans, 3rd season :Did not play; declared inactive for the Saints' loss to the Panthers.
