NFL Cougar Highlights: Week Four
PITOITUA'S OLD Cougar teammate Eric Frampton—recently released by Dallas—had a tryout with Baltimore last week, but wasn't immediately signed to a contract. Frampton has made hay in the NFL with his special teams prowess over the past six seasons.
Here's how the NFL Cougs performed in week four:
Husain Abdullah, CB, Kansas City, 5th season: No recorded stats from the Chiefs' 31-7 victory against the New York Giants.
Jed Collins, FB, New Orleans, 5th season: Caught one pass for 6 yards in the Saints' 38-17 defeat of Miami on Monday.
Brandon Gibson, WR, Miami, 5th season: The Puyallup native led all Dolphin receivers with six catches for 71 yards in a losing effort against New Orleans.
Chris Ivory, RB, New York Jets, 4th season: Did not play; out with a hamstring injury suffered in week three.
Rian Lindell, K, Tampa Bay, 14th season: The Vancouver native connected on a 50-yard field goal, but it wasn't enough to give the Bucs their first win of the year, as they fell to Arizona, 13-10. He was also true on his line extra-point attempt.
Travis Long, LB, Philadelphia, 1st year: Did not play; assigned to the Eagles' practice squad.
Ropati Pitoitua, DE, Tennessee, 5th season: The Tacoma native posted three solo stops—2 of which were QB sacks—in the Titans' 38-13 win against his former employer, the New York Jets.
Jeff Tuel, QB, Buffalo, Rookie: No recorded stats from the Bills' 24-20 defeat of Baltimore.
Marquess Wilson, WR, Chicago, Rookie: Declared inactive for the Bears' 40-32 loss to Detroit.
