Each week we will be keeping tabs on the former Virginia Cavaliers now in the NFL. Here is how the Hoos in the NFL fared in Week 7:
Rodney McLeod - Philadelphia Eagles - Safety - McLeod had three tackles and a pass defended in a big Eagles 34-24 win on Monday Night. Philadelphia is now a NFL-best 6-1 with the former UVA star as one of the defensive leaders.
Morgan Moses - Washington Redskins - Offensive Tackle –Moses started at right tackle for Washington in the 24-34 Redskins loss. The former UVA star lineman somehow managed to roll both of his ankles in the 2nd quarter. Ouch.
Morgan Moses told me he rolled both ankles, but said he'll play next week. "I never miss a game. If there are no broken bones, I'm playing."— Ben Standig (@BenStandig) October 24, 2017
Oday Aboushi - Seattle Seahawks - Guard – The former UVA lineman started at right guard for the Seahawks in their 24-7 victory. Aboushi apparently did not allow a single QB pressure all game. He also was interviewed by Seattle’s local radio station leading up to the game.
Ethan Pocic and Mark Glowinski only allowed one QB pressure combined, while Oday Aboushi did not allow a single pressure all game. #Seahawks— Samuel Gold (@SamuelRGold) October 23, 2017
